Best Blog Tips

When you're preparing quick meals, especially during your busiest times of the week, month and year, it is great to have some side dishes that easily complete and round up a meal that you just simply threw together in a pinch, or that could simply become a light meal by simply adding a generous salad and a simple dessert. These croquettes fit your bill perfectly!

1 1/2 cups Masa Harina
3/4 cup cornmeal
4 Tbsp, coarnstarch
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
1/2 cup tofu
Salt to taste
1/2 cup soy or rice milk (or as needed)

3/4 cups peas, thawed
1/2 cup soy or rice milk (or as needed)
Olive oil

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until you have a batter. Make sure it is a thick batter (like for pancakes).
In a skillet that has been barely "painted" with olive oil, drop the batter by large tablespoonfuls. Wait till it sets before flipping.
