If there is one concept I’m completely enamored with, it’s fritters! For years I had no idea what equated to a fritter, but it basically any veggies, with a lil bit of flour, typically eggs, and simply cooked in a skillet!
In many ways, fritters are like a blank canvas. You can make them as healthy or indulgent as you like, cater to your tastebuds and the seasons, leaving the options endless for fritters!
In keeping with the trend of creating effortless recipes, I knew I had to do a fall fritter! If you know me, you know I love all things brussles. Many just simply pop them in the oven and call it a day. However, you can have so much fun playing with the flavor profile. I love to throw them in my favorite salad, they are great with my Korean Bbq Sauce, Traditional Bbq Sauce, “Honey” mustard, and more! (remakes coming for these, stay tuned!)
Believe it or not, I was making shaved brussles salad back in 2014 long before you could even buy them pre-shredded. I had to literally take a mandolin to each one and cut myself sometimes in the process lol. God bless shredded brussles!
What’s fab about this fritter, is simply everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, veggie packed, flavor packed, can easily be made in bulk, pairs perf with the dijon aioli, perf for fall, and is a brussles sprout lovers dream!
If you love all things brussles, you’re going to LOVE these vegan Shaved Brussles Fritters with dijon aioli!!
Why this recipe is great:
Perf for fall
No need to shred the brussles, buy them pre-shredded!
In a small bowl combine the egg powder and almond milk. Whisk to remove clumps and set aside.
Take the shaved brussels and give them a rough chop and remove any of the pieces with stems that are too coarse.
In a large bowl add the remaining ingredients. Add in the vegan egg mixture and combine to the brussel sprouts to form patties.
In a large nonstick pan, add ¼ cup vegetable oil and heat over medium heat.
When the oil is hot, add the cakes and cook them for about 2-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy. *I like to add a little additional Panko to patties right before frying for even more texture! Once cooked, set on top of paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Combine all of the ingredients for the aioli, and top the fritters with it. garnish with fresh parsley if desired
Serve them immediately or place patties on sheet pan in a 300 degree oven to keep hot until you serve.
You can add chopped shallots to the aioli if you like or in the fritters for added flavor!
You can skip the white flour and use chickpea if you like!
