  • 1/2 cup Italian parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 Tbs. corn flour
  • 1 Tbs. capers

  • 11/2 cups Cashew Cream
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red pepper, rinsed, drained, and diced
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray with cooking spray.

2. To make Fritters: Combine all ingredients in food processor, and pulse until ingredients are well-combined and no large chunks remain.
