I’m a meat eater but limit myself to just 2-3 days a week. It’s no biggie for me as I am a vegetable lover. When good produce is limited as it can be up north in winter it’s good to have some easy veggy dishes. 2 favorites
Yam Latkes (or sweet potatoe fritters)with curry
2 cups grated peeled yams
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 15oz can garbonzo beans,drained
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon sal
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
8 tablespoons oil
Combine yams and red pepper in lg bowl.Pureee garbonzo beans in processor to coarse paste. Add egg,curry and salt. Blend. Stir in mustard seeds and cilantro.Then stir in garbozo mixture into yam mixture.
Working in batches,fry latkes in heated oil spoonfuls at a time about 3-4 inch rounds. Cook until brown 3-4 minutes each side.
These are good served with plain yogurt or sour cream.
