Bean & Veggie Fritters


1 tbls olive or rice bran oil (Rice bran oil has a higher smoking point so better for frying)
1 small onion, diced
1 tbls coriander stems, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed 
1 cup corn (1 fresh organic cob) - Please use organic corn due to GMO
1 cup sweet potato, grated
1 zucchini, grated and squeezed dry
1 can canellini beans
½ cup mint leaves, chopped finely
½ tbls sea salt (or to taste)
½ cup of rice flour or besan (chick pea) flour (I made my rice flour in the Thermomix, 100g organic rice on Speed 9 for 1.5 mins)
2 tbls rice bran oil
1 lime, quartered

Now the above can all be done in the Thermomix, saute, blitzing of the beans and mixing or you can do as follows below.

1. In a heavy based pan sauté your onions and coriander stems in the oil over a medium heat until translucent. Now add and garlic and stir for a few seconds. Now add the veggies and stir to coat. Remove from the heat.

2 . In a processor/Thermomix place the beans and blitz for a few seconds. Now add the veggie mixture, mint and salt. Slowly add the flour until you have a firm mixture. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO OVER PROCESS YOU WANT A BIT OF CHUNKINESS otherwise you will end up with a sloppy mess!

3. Heat a large, heavy based pan with the rice bran oil. Make balls about the size of a walnut, then press into a pattie. Fry these until golden on each side. Drain on a kitchen towel
