It’s really rewarding to cook your beans from scratch not only its much cheaper but it improves digestion and unlocks the hidden potential of the tiny humble bean. By soaking them overnight you will remove phytic acid and increase the ability of your body to utilize B vitamins, zinc and other minerals. And honestly is such a minimum effort for a quite a big health reward. 


    These fritters are packed with protein and flavour. Crispy on the outside, chewy in the middle they are perfect as a snack on the go or addition to your Buddha bowl.  And to take it to the next level you can whip up the quick soy-based sauce( soy sauce. lime, maple syrup and sesame oil) garnish them with herbs, green onion and spicy pepper and top all of this deliciousness with avocado!
