I just want a little something, quick...

I am really digging on the the Southern Veg love I am getting.  I promise I will get out more recipes, ideas, and articles for everyone.  I just got a message from an old friend who wanted a dinner idea.  Well as I type I am editing video for my next recipe but needed to put something quick up.  The other night I made a veggie croquette with mac and cheeze.  My croquette is adapted from Paula Deens veggie pancake,  I just made it vegan.
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or salt free creole seasoning mix
  • 1 egg or EnerG egg replacer equivalent
  • 1/4 cup soy, almond, or milk of choice
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup grated squash (1/2 green, 1/2 yellow)
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons oil


(For the egg replacer users heat oven to 350 degrees and place a sheet pan in the oven.  When your croquettes finish frying place them in the oven for another 10 minutes.)  In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In another bowl, beat together the egg or egg replacer, milk, carrots, zucchini, and onions. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Using a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Pour the batter by tablespoons into the pan, making a few pancakes at a time. Cook about 2 minutes on each side and golden brown. Add the remaining oil to the pan as needed.

Hope you guys enjoy.  I will post the my Mac and Cheeze soon, promise!
