Who doesn’t like a fritter?

Applying leftovers in inventive means can be portion of adopting a zero squander cooking approach. I steamed some broccoli and carrots for supper one night, and experienced about a cup and a half leftover. Guaranteed you can just reheat the veggies and consume them once again as a side dish. But that’s type of uninteresting proper?

Alternatively, I whipped up these broccoli-carrot fritters and gave the leftovers new lifestyle. You can substitute just about any cooked vegetable for the broccoli-carrots. These can be created as an appetizer, be served as a side dish, or to major a salad. Delight in!
