Spinach and Corn Pikelets – Packed with Veggies

These are a very tasty savoury pikelet! I set out to create a corn fritter batter recipe for the Thermomix and while these didn’t come out how I’d planned, they are a very tasty savoury pikelet that is incredibly popular with my kids (bonus with all that veg!)

They freeze well and are really good for lunch boxes. Simply freeze in a single layer, on a lined tray or plates. When frozen, transfer into a container or big ziplock bag and store until needed.

You can make them without the spinach if your kids are allergic to green!

You can mix and match the ingredients if you like, I’ve even made these with peas instead of the corn and the kids devoured those too.

Update: My Corn Fritter recipe for the Thermomix did end up eventuating and let me tell you, they are exactly what I was wanting! Crunchy and PACKED with corn, much less batter than a pikelet-style corn fritter. If you would like to try them, the recipe can be found here in Super Sides Made Easy.

Sorry Bec.. one more question.. Just realised I only have frozen spinach. Can I use this and is it the same quantity? Sorry to be a pain.

Hi Bec. If I don’t have herbamare or dulse flakes is there a substitute? Or can I just omit them.. I have everything else and I would love to have these for my lunch at work tomorrow! Thanks 😀

Would these work without the egg do you think? Or substituting with egg replacer?

These are great! I will try them with almond meal next time. Has anyone else tried? Thanks for the recipe.

Hiya!! I made these last night and honestly they really are the best corn fritters I have ever tasted!! I’m impressed with the flavour and texture – only thing I did do was add bacon to make up the quantity of corn (as didn’t have enough) and they were also loved by master 6! Thanks Bexta – keep em coming!!!! Xx

Hi Bec… Sorry about the silly question but can you use plain flour instead of spelt? As I don’t have spelt flour .. thanks!

Could you use chickpea flour instead? If so, would it be same amount?
