Broccoli Cornmeal Fritters

I was avoiding the fairly empty refrigerator before dinner and thinking about how much I didn’t want to go shopping. In my usual head-on approach to a necessary task,  I was sneaking a read on my iPad Kindle app when a pop-up notification appeared telling me the July issue of BHG was on my ipad. In some fit of domesticity I ordered an electronic subscription several months ago and had kind of forgotten about it. I went straight to the recipe index and noticed a whole section on broccoli. Hmm, thought I, I have broccoli in the fridge…
A few tweaks of the recipe to “veganize” it for Irad (whole wheat flour, flax seed in place of eggs, rice milk in place of milk), and voilà!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup corn meal
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1 and 1/2 cups of rice milk
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
One head of finely chopped broccoli, softened by steaming or in microwave for 2 minutes
Mix dry ingredients together. Fold in the rice milk quickly along with the broccoli.
Form the fritters into patties, and fry lightly in pan. Serve immediately with a light salad.

Optional: Add-in fresh corn kernels
