These Vegan Corn Fritters are packed with fresh corn, onion, and savory seasonings. They’re easy to pan fry and taste their best when dipped in the homemade garlic aioli. No eggs or cornmeal needed!


For corn fritters:

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour*

  • 1 tablespoon curry powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened soy milk

  • 1/2 cup vegan liquid JUST Egg

  • 1- 12 oz can of corn, drained well (about 2 cups)

  • 1/2 cup grated yellow onion, grated with box grater

  • 1/4 cup diced green onions

  • 2 tablespoons canned diced green chilies

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons oil (for frying) + more as needed

Garlic aioli (lime or lemon)

  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice

  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (optional)

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

  • Pinch of salt and cracked black pepper


  1. In a large bowl mix the flour, curry powder and salt together. Make a well in the center, add the soy milk and vegan egg. Whisk until smooth. 
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the oil and stir until completely combined. Set aside the fritter batter to rest while the pan heats up.

  3. To a large non-stick pan or griddle add the oil and heat over medium to medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, working in batches, carefully drop dollops (about 3 tablespoons) of the corn batter into the pan with a large cookie scoop or 1/4 cup measuring cup. And flatten them into pancake-like patties. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Turn down the heat at any time if necessary. Transfer fritters to a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle each batch with a little salt. Repeat until all the batter is gone, adding more oil in between batches. Makes about 20 fritters. 

  4. Aioli: mix together ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.

  5. Serve the fritters warm with the garlic aioli. Garnish with chopped cilantro or chives. For step by step photos, tips, FAQ and more see above post.
