Cozy is my Favourite

I thought I would share with you one of my favourite blogs. It's name: Posie Gets Cozy.
There are many reasons Posie has earned my undying love and respect, and this is first and foremost that she posts regularly. Nearly everyday...sometimes twice a day. Now I know I shouldn't rely on others for my creative giggles and inspirations, but Alicia Paulson is just so darn talented, it would be unsound of me not to at least look at her photos and dream....which I do, everyday. See for yourself.....

White Bean & Onion Fritters

I'm going to whip some of these up this evening. The process reminds me of 'fish cakes' my mother has made for years. We'll see how these stack up!

Here's the recipe...try some for yourself:

White Bean & Onion Fritters

  • 1 cup cannellini beans {either canned, or soaked and boiled}
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup flour
Place beans in a food processor and whirl until you have a puree. Place puree in a bowl

Heat oil and add onions. Sautee 5 minutes or until soft. Remove and add to puree.

Season with S & P. Add 2 T flour to mixture, stir until smooth.

In same skillet, add enough oil to cover bottom of pan.

Mold puree into gold ball size balls. Roll in flour, and then squish into a patty.

Slide into pan, and cook 5 minutes each side. When finished place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Consume when hot!
