Leftover Cabbage Fritters

November 1, 2011

Cabbage Fritters So, after I made the cabbage dish, I had quite a bit of it leftover in the fridge. I thought of serving it again a few days later but somehow wanted to transform the vegetable into something else. Cooked cabbage tends to be mushy- which is fine but that is what I don’t like about it. I decided to do something about it and change it up into something crunchy and even more delicious.

What do you do with delicious leftovers?? You make fritters, of course! I decided to add an egg, peanuts, raisins and the secret ingredient- panko breadcrumbs. I love using these Japanese breadcrumbs. They provide a delicious crunch in everything.  I incorporated everything and cooked them in a non-stick pan with a bit of oil.

The crunchy fritters were delicious- the chopped raisins provided a surprise burst of sweetness and the peanuts were crunchy. It was amazing to transform the cabbage into delicious fritters. Now I can’t wait to make the cabbage again so I can eat the fritters again!

  • 1 to 1½ cups leftover spiced cabbage
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup golden raisins, chopped
  • ½ cup panko crumbs
  • ¼ cup extra light olive oil

Add the cabbage, egg, salt, peanuts, raisins and panko crumbs in a medium bowl and mix well with fingers, incorporating everything well. Form fritters carefully pressing between palms, making 6 to 8 depending on the size.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan over high heat. Lower to a simmer and sauté the fritters turning every minute making sure all sides are golden brown. Serve hot.
