Many people are trying to be frugal these days, and that is a wonderful idea. These croquettes are not only delicious, but they are leftover busters and an economical side dish!
If you made a nice, warm pot of our Hearty Vegetable Soup, make sure there are leftovers! They are the basis of these delicious and easy croquettes.

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. onion powder
Salt to taste (if needed)
2 cups vegetables leftover from the Hearty Vegetable Soup
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp. tomato sauce

With the side of a fork, cut the leftover vegetables in small pieces, dump them into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well till you have a dough. Form croquettes qith yourhands and cook them in a hot skillet barely "painted" with olive oil until they are golden brown on both sides.
Great side dish for rice, mashed potatoes, or baked yams!
Add 1 Tbsp. finely minced fresh parsley
