- Hands-on time 1 hour
”These delicious vegan bean fritters are also known as akara and are commonly eaten as a snack or breakfast food. Black-eyed beans are blended with spices, formed into patties and deep-fried until golden. I’ve added texture with sliced okra and red serrano chillies, but you can swap for green bell peppers and omit the chillies if you don’t like heat. They make a fantastic canapé or party snack, too.” – Zoe Adjonyoh

To make avocado mayo, whizz ½ ripe avocado with 4 tbsp good quality mayo and the grated zest of ½ lime.
You can use tinned beans for this, but I find they’re a little too soft to get the texture I like. If you’re in the mood for a fast recipe, though, go with tinned, and
if the mixture feels a bit wet, dust with a bit of cornflour.
Shape the fritters, then cover and chill for up to 2 hours before frying.
