Vegetable croquettes of course! They can contain anything that you have on hand. If you've got other leftover veg (or meat), chuck 'em in. A can of beans? Chuck 'em in. Pretty much anything can go into them.
|Crispy on the outside, hot and squishy on the inside.|
Again, this isn't an actual recipe, just an idea, a bit of inspiration.
- leftover mashed potato
- finely chopped leek, shallot, celery, garlic, cabbage, brussels sprouts
- grated swede
- any vegetable puree you may have
- cooked lentils
- tinned beans (kidney, cannellini, chickpeas etc)
- oil for frying
- Saute or steam any raw vegetables
- Mix them through the mashed potato adding salt to taste.
- Add as many lightly beaten eggs as necessary to moisten your vegetable mixture (unless you went completely over the top, one is probably enough).
- Take about a tablespoon at a time and shape into a log and coat in crumbs.
- When they are all done heat enough oil for shallow frying in a frying pan and cook in batches until they are golden on the outside and hot through.
- Drain on paper towel if necessary.
- Try not to burn your mouth as you shovel them in.
|Hubby thought that I had bought them and not just thrown them together from leftovers.|
