We like healthy eating as much as the next person. We're always happy to make a big salad. And we appreciate a big bowl of vegetable soup for lunch. But what we really love to do with our vegetables isn't actually healthy at all. We like to batter and fry them into golden crisp fritters. We know this almost defeats the purpose of eating vegetables, but hey, they're really good this way.

Corn and zucchini are the most popular fritter recipes. But those aren't the only vegetables you can batter and fry. We've got fritter recipes for okra, artichoke and carrots. Even celery makes a great fritter.
