I thought I could follow this recipe but I was using cooked dry beans, so they were not easily mashable, so I had to improvise.
Then with the dip, I did not have all the ingredients, so I had to make substitutions.
White Bean Mixture
2 cups cooked white beans, coarsely mashed
1/4 white onion, diced
1 tbspn dry parsley
2 tbspns Parmesan cheese
Salt/pepper to taste
In a bowl, add ingredients. Stir well.
2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup milk
A dash of paprika
Add fritter batter ingredients into a separate bowl. Stir well.
Add fitter batter to bean mixture.
Add olive oil to skillet. Heat medium-high.
Add a tablespoon of mixture at a time.
Generally, a small skillet can hold 4 fitters with room to turn fritters over.
Cook fritters for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
