2 cups water
1 1/2tsp salt
1 lg. egg
1/4 tsp each garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper
1 1/2tsp baking powder
2 cup flour
2 cup Cookin’ Greens Athletes Mix or Chopped Kale
In a large bowl whisk together water, salt and egg. Tip in flour, spices and baking powder. Stir with a wooden spoon. Just before everything is blended add the frozen greens, breaking any large clumps. Continue blending until thoroughly combined. Allow to sit for 5-10min. while preparing pan.
Meanwhile, place a deep pot on the stove and preheat 1″ of vegetable oil on med. high. Oil temperature should be between 350-365 F. If you do not have a thermometer, test the oil by dropping a tiny amount of dough into the oil. *If bubbles begin to appear around the dough and it begins to float your oil is ready.*
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls into the oil, do not over crowd. Shape into fairly flat and round discs for proper browning and even cooking on the inside. Brown to a golden crisp colour on both sides turning only once. Continue until all dough is used.
Drain on paper towels. Arrange on a platter with a dip if desired.
