Corn Fritters

Fritters make a great appetizer or side dish, but always contain eggs, dairy, and white flour. These fritters have been veganized and are even more delicious than their counterparts. They are served with a homemade sweet chili sauce, as most sweet chili sauces contain fish sauce, and other modified ingredients.

As the weather gets nicer and you are able to buy local corn, by all means, replace the frozen corn with fresh! Just scrape the kernals off of 2-3 cobs.

Can anything be used to substitute the flax seed? I'm one of those people for whom flax seed tastes like fish. Consequently, anything I put it in tastes like fish to me. I'd love to try these, but know that they would not taste good to me made with that ingredient. Any advice would be great!

These corn fritters look lovely (and you've incorporated so many healthful ingredients) but it's the sweet chili sauce that's singing my song... ;-) wonderful!
