Vegan Green Pea Fritters and Dip

I love peas! When in season and are so fresh I love just eating them like candy, uncooked and soo sweet and crunchy. But all year around frozen peas are a staple in my freezer and when I didn’t make it to the store or market and the fridge is empty, than frozen peas can turn into a simple, lovely dinner in no time.

These fritters are easy to make; great as a snack or meal served cold or warm and packed with protein and fiber, they are vegan/vegetarian and gluten and nut fee too – soo they are good for you! Kids love these !
