Vegetable Fritters With Hot Chili Sauce are perfect for lunch, dinner, snacks, or fancy appetizers. For kids, you can use a milder peanut sauce and they are great finger foods. In my experience, fritters have always been fried, high in fat and short on nutrition. Now, you can have something crunchy, vegetable level nutritious and not fried. To make sure they were very crunchy, I baked half of the fritters for 30 minutes in the Cuisinart Convection Oven at 350 for 30 minutes, and half of the fritters in the regular oven at 375 for 30 minutes-- the Cuisinart fritters were definitely crisper. Try them out--everyone will love them and they make great left overs. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
