After making my jalapeño corn fritters awhile back, I’ve become obsessed with the idea of fritters. They’re just so easy to make and are great for a side dish or appetizer. So when I found myself with an abundance of butternut squash after making this pesto pasta with butternut squash recipe, fritters immediately came to mind! I didn’t want these to be just any old butternut squash fritters though. I decided to spice them up a little with curry powder for a unique flavor. I’ve made a curried butternut squash soup before, so I figured adding curry powder to these fritters would be an excellent flavor combo – and I was right! They turned out delicious!

Normally when you make fritters, you make a batter including eggs and flour. However, since ours are gluten-free and vegan, we use a gluten-free flour blend (Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 baking flour is one of my favorites when I’m not making my own blend) and a flax egg, which is a combination of ground flax meal and water, to act as an egg substitute. Of course, if you don’t need these to be gluten-free or vegan, feel free to use all-purpose flour and regular chicken eggs in this recipe. You’ll love them either way!

These vegan curried butternut squash fritters have great flavor from the combination of curry powder and cilantro and are so easy to make. They mixture itself is ready in no time, and then it takes just a few batches of pan frying the fritters and they’re ready! I topped mine simply with coconut yogurt and more chopped cilantro. But they would taste great plain, too!
