Fresh Corn Fritters with Salsa Verde
I have a lot of unfamiliar things in this week's box of produce. At the top of the list: tomatillos. The only recipe I found for them was salsa verde in Veganomicon, so I went ahead - replacing cilantro with parsley & putting chili powder in lieu of an actual chili. Then I made corn fritters with the two ears of corn using the Vegan With A Vengeance recipe to go with the salsa verde. The salsa verde was like nothing I've ever tasted (can't quite decide if that was a good thing), and the fritters were okay, pancakey in taste and texture. I had to omit the chili from them too, which I think would've given an interesting kick. The fresh corn that went into them was delicious - I had no idea raw corn was so good. I hope I get to play around with more sometime soon.
