Serves 1 (serving size: 2 fritters, about 2 cups salad, and about 1/3 cup avocado)

These delicious pea fritters are rich in fiber and plant-based protein, thanks to a wealth of healthy ingredients such as green peas, silken tofu, and bulgur. But that’s not all—the creamy avocado puree and side kale salad make this superstar meal even more nutritious.

How to Make It

Step 1

Process tofu and flour in a mini food processor until smooth. Add premade bulgur (recipe here); pulse until blended. Add peas, scallion, cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; pulse until combined.

Step 2

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium. Shape pea mixture into 2 patties. (They will be very soft but will firm up as they cook.) Add patties to skillet; gently flatten to 3/4-inch thickness. Cook until browned on bottom, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully turn fritters, and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 3

Mash avocado, garlic, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and a dash of salt until smooth.

Step 4

Place kale in a bowl; drizzle with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Massage until lightly wilted. Add cucumber, onion, remaining 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and remaining dash of salt; toss to combine. Serve salad and fritters with mashed avocado.
