Plantain Fritters with Mango Papaya Salsa

Plantain Fritters with Mango Papaya Salsa

Source: Vegan Without Borders | Makes: 14-16 fritters | Time: 30 min


  • Halved the amount of papaya because it turns out my husband doesn't like it which I found out as I was making dinner

  • Halved the amount of mango

  • Skipped scallions in fritters, replaced them with green onion in the relish

  • Doubled the amount of bell pepper in the relish (and used a greenish/red pepper instead of red)

  • Skipped lime zest

  • Replaced flax seed mix with Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer

Plans for Next Time

  • Add garlic to the fritters

  • Add red onion to the fritters



1/2 ripe #papaya, peeled, seeded and diced

1 ripe #mango, peeled, pitted and diced

1 #bellpepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

1/4 cup chopped green onions

2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

2 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp EVO

S&P, to taste


2 ripe #plantains, peeled and cut into chunks

2 Bob's Red Mill egg replacers

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp oregano

Dash of all spice

1/4 tsp cayenne (I did more.)

Dash of pepper

1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more as needed

2 tbsp olive oil



Combine all the ingredients.


Preheat oven to 275F.

In a food processor combine plantains, egg replacer, and spices and blend until smooth. I did this in two batches

Transfer mixture to a bowl and add flour. Combine well. Shape mixture into small fritters.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry fritters 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer to baking sheet and absorb excess oil with paper towels. Keep the fritters in the oven until read to serve with papaya-mango relish.
