THE NIBBLE’s Kids & Family Editor, Cricket Azima, says that if you haven’t settled on a pumpkin dish for your Thanksgiving dinner, these South African Pumpkin Fritters are a snap. You can also serve them for dessert with ice cream or whipped cream, or make them for brunch over Thanksgiving weekend.
The recipe is from Cricket’s cookbook, Everybody Eats Lunch.
These fritters are topped with cinnamon sugar. If you’d rather take a savory approach, top with plain nonfat Greek yogurt (or serve it on the side) and garnish with pumpkin seeds (optional).
