Gluten Free Corn Fritters With Avocado Crema – Quarantine Cooking
GLUTEN FREE CORN FRITTERS
Ingredients for 8 corn fritters (8 servings)
- 16oz frozen corn (thawed)
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of sea salt & pepper
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 green onion, finely diced
- 2/3 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
- 3 tablespoons avocado oil (for “frying” in the skillet)
To a high powered blender or food processor, add half of the corn, garlic, cumin, paprika, baking powder, sea salt & pepper, eggs and almond flour. Blend until smooth with some chunks.
Add the mixture to a bowl and then fold in the remaining corn and ingredients EXCEPT the oil. Mix and fold everything together. For best results, place the batter ini the fridge for at least 20 minutes to firm up.
Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add the oil, then about 3-4 tablespoons per patty. Cook on each side for about 4-6 minutes, or until the edges and bottom are golden brown.
Allow them to cool to harden since they are very fragile when hot. Enjoy this with avocado crema (see recipe below).

- 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
