Three Onion Gluten Free Corn Fritters

For my onion lovers out there


I used to dislike onions so much that if a dish included them, I'd sit there and pick them out one by one.  I don't know what has changed, but now I can't get enough of them.  There's nothing better than the smell of sautéed onions on the the stovetop or caramelized onions on a hot dinner.

I've especially grown fond of fresh, raw red onions - the crunch, the slight spice, the flavor. So good!


These corn fritters we've created are sort of a combination of my three favorite corn fritter recipes meshed into one.

They're perfect for a dinner party appetizer or as an easily slapped together lunch.  All you need to do is chop up a bunch of veg, toss the flour and some spices together, and combine for a nice thick batter.  Drop some dollops of the veg-heavy batter into a pan with hot coconut oil and voila!
