Meatless Monday’s Vegan Potato and Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Welcome to the Miratel blog for another fabulous edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Vegan food doesn’t mean salads, salads and more salads as some may think. Vegans can enjoy the same wide-range of delicious, satisfying comfort foods as carnivores if they choose – they are just a little healthier. Today’s recipe for Vegan Potato and Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce are tasty and come courtesy of Rhea Parsons via One Green Planet, an incredible resource for vegan recipes, tips and news.

Ingredients – Fritters (makes 18):

  • 5-6 cups mashed potatoesvegan potato and spinach cheddar fritters
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 large bunch fresh spinach, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, mined
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. egg replacer +1/4 cup water
  • 1 ½ cups vegan cheddar shreds
  • ¼ cup chickpea flour
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Ingredients – Dipping Sauce:

  • ¼ cup vegan mayo
  • 2 Tbs. ketchup
  • 2 Tbs. vegan, gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. prepared horseradish
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions – Fritters:

  1. Put the mashed potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onion until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach by the handful, tossing it to coat in the oil. As it wilts, add more spinach. Add the garlic and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Then add it to the mixing bowl with the potatoes and mix well.
  2. In a mug, combine the egg replacer and water and mix well. Add it to the potatoes and spinach. Add the cheese and mix everything together. Taste for seasoning adjustments. Add in the flour and mix to combine. You want the mix to feel like it will hold together. Scoop up about 3 Tbs. of the mix and form it into a patty. Continue until you have used all the mix.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add four patties at a time and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Gently flip and cook the other side until golden brown, another 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle a bit of kosher salt on top. Continue to cook all the patties, adding more oil as necessary. Serve with dipping sauce.
