Vegan Potato & Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Potato Spinach Fritters with Daiya (25)

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t know what to make for dinner and the veggie supply was running low. You know those times – you look through the fridge and try to figure out what you can make from what you have, like it’s a basket on Chopped.

I had potatoes and I had a bunch of fresh spinach which needed to get used fast. And I had green beans. What I didn’t want was another stir-fry or stew. I wanted something cheesy and fried. Fritters, it would be.

Whenever I see a recipe for any type of mashed potato fritters or cakes, they always say to use leftover mashed potatoes. Who has leftover mashed potatoes? I never do. Ever. So I had to make the mashed potatoes first. If you have leftover or can make them a day ahead, the potatoes will be stiffer and make firmer cakes but if not, just make them and let them cool down a bit.

The spinach got sauteed with lots of garlic in olive oil and it was hard not to just eat it straight from the bowl while it was cooling down. I love garlicky spinach.

When I was in Yeshiva grade school, we had the most meager lunches. It was a very poor school. All lunches were meat-free and our main entree was usually white rice, potatoes or macaroni. On the days they served mashed potatoes as the main course, we would all be very excited. They made really good, creamy mashed potatoes. The side dish would always be spinach which smelled like spinach…MUCHO! I didn’t like spinach then so I wouldn’t get it. Those who did like spinach would get it and mix it into their mashed potatoes. AACK! A mí, that was killing the potatoes. Yuck! Por supuesto, I wanted to like spinach like Popeye but I didn’t. Today mashed potatoes mixed with spinach? Good!

In a big mixing bowl, I mixed the potatoes and the garlicky spinach and then added the egg replacer. Usé The Vegg Vegan Egg Yolk which really acts like eggs. Entonces Daiya Vegan Cheddar Shreds which melts really well in fritters. And just enough chickpea flour to hold it all together.

Para la salsa, I just threw together some vegan mayo, Mostaza de Dijon, salsa Worcestershire vegan, and a little bit of prepared horseradish. And a bit of dried oregano. Yum!

The fritters were crispy on the outside with creamy potatoes, garlicky spinach and ooey-gooey cheese inside. Perfecto.
