Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

Today's post is sponsored by Stonyfield Organics and Bob's Red Mills!

You are in for a treat with these veggie fritters using amaranth grains!  Something different for your family and absolutely delicious!  Veggie fritters were a devoured from the toddler, teen and myself and a lovely neighbor that could smell the deliciousness cooking and stopped by!  There is always enough for everyone!  These are also a hit on Instagram! 

Add this Stonyfield Greek Yogurt Chia Sauce and some fresh fruit 
and you have the perfect meal! 


Ingredients - 

1 Cup of Bob's Red Mill Amaranth Grain

Olive Oil
Bag of frozen Corn
Bag of frozen peas
Sea Salt (I love pink Himalayan)
Pepper
1 Tablespoon of Nigella
2 Teaspoons of Black Sesame Seeds
3 Teas of Chia Seeds


2 Eggs
2 heaping Tbs. Hemp Seeds
3 Tbs. of Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour (Sprouted Spelt is wonderful too)


Greek Yogurt Chia Sauce - 

1 Tbs. of Ketchup (organic or non GMO)
3/4 Organic Stonyfield Greek Yogurt
2 Teas of Chia Seeds
Sea Salt ( one crank should do)
Pepper (one crank or to taste)

Make the Bob's Red Mill Amaranth according to package.  Making 1 cup. (you will have loads left over or make a double batch)
While that is cooking, saute a bag of frozen organic corn and peas. Saute with olive oil, add in chia seeds, nigella, pepper and sea salt.  Taste it.  Add a bit more sea salt and pepper, if needed.  Set aside to cool down a bit.   The corn, peas and spices are absolutely amazing and I must warn you - you will want to eat it alone.  Just wait!
When the amaranth is done, set aside to cool down a bit.
When both dishes have cooled down just a bit (about 5 minutes cooling off is fine)

Add to a stand mixing bowl - add in two cups of the cooked amaranth (you will have a bunch left over in the pan for another dish or just make a double dish of this)

Add in two cups of the cooked peas and corn spice mixture.
Add two eggs.
Add 2 heaping tbs. of hemp seeds
Add 3 Tbs. of sprouted whole wheat flour (spelt is great too)

Mix until blended.


Heat skillet to medium heat.
Add olive oil then drops of batter.
Flip when ready (about 3 minutes) and cook other side.
Place on warm plate in the oven.

Enjoy hot!  
And if you have any left over, then are spectacular cold too!


My Notes - 

I use organic and/or non GMO products.  If a food is organic it does not have GMOs and if it is fair trade - it is not GMO.  Please educate yourself on food, it is constantly changing and it is incredibly important for our children's future health.

I am in no way suggesting ketchup is "healthy" - it is an easy ingredient that most moms happen to have in their fridge and put with organic greek yogurt it can make a simple dip quickly.  I absolutely recommend to read the ingredients of your ketchup.  I only use organic ketchup or Sir Kensington's Ketchup - it is fabulous and non GMO. (a bit expensive, so I only buy on sale)

Whether you use Stonyfield Organic yogurts or not, please buy organic dairy.  When the cows eat GMO feed - you eat it!  And not to mention the treatment of the animals - factory farmed.  Food matters.  Eat Well.

I use One Degree Organic Sprouted Flours

Corn is the largest GMO crop and I completely AVOID unless I can find organic.  I can usually find organic frozen corn in the market.
