Semolina fritters


This translation has been done by an automatic system, therefore we apologize if it isn't perfect. If you find any mistake or you have any suggestion for a better translation, please contact us.


1 liter of vanilla flavored soy milk
220 g of semolina
half cup raisins
6 tablespoons of wheat malt
2 tablespoons of cornflour (cornstarch)
grated rind of 1 lemon
1 pinch of whole sea salt up
extra virgin olive oil for frying


The semolina fritters are a recipe of Piedmontese cuisine, traditionally made from milk and eggs, but now rewritten by me specially for a 100% vegan kitchen, in memory of my childhood, when my grandmother was preparing them for all us grandkids.

Soak the raisins in a bowl with soy milk.
Grate the lemon rind, which must be unprocessed and organic.
Dissolve the cornstarch in 1/2 glass of soymilk and heat the remaining milk with malt, raisin and with a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor of sweet.
When it begins to boil, reduce the heat to low, add the milk where you loose the cornstarch, slowly pour in the semolina and let thicken, stirring constantly for ten minutes or so.
To finally add the grated lemon rind.
When the mixture has thickened, remove from the heat, transfer it onto a baking sheet previously sprinkled with breadcrumbs and, using the back of a spoon, try to level the surface of the dough: moistened for this purpose from time to time the spoon in a bowl of water to prevent sticking.
Cover the surface of the dough with more bread crumbs and roll it out with a rolling pin until you get a few cm thick.
Let cool and then refrigerate at least two hours, until the mixture becomes thick.
When will you be well cooled, cut into diamond shapes and dip again in bread crumbs, making sure to distribute it on all sides.
Fry the fritters so obtained in hot oil, causing them to brown on both sides.
Once cooked, dry them with paper towels to remove excess oil.
Cool are even more good!

For a faster preparation or even just for a change, instead of cheerful small diameter balls prepared pancakes to fry in boiling oil: let them brown evenly so that they become crispy on the surface but soft inside.
Will be highly appreciated by children ... and more!

NOTA: Questa ricetta in versione vegan è stata appositamente rielaborata e scritta nel 2006 da Emanuela Barbero, partendo dalla ricetta della propria nonna paterna di un dolce tradizionale piemontese.
Nel 2009 la stessa ricetta è stata copiata e pubblicata letteralmente e illegittimamente da un'altra persona, senza alcuna autorizzazione, in un libro di ricette vegan per bambini successivamente oggetto di causa giudiziaria e per questo motivo oggi non più in commercio.
I giudici hanno verificato i fatti e riconosciuto il plagio a nostro danno e nel 2013 hanno emesso la sentenza di condanna per plagio-contraffazione disponendo la distruzione del libro pubblicato illegittimamente con il nostro lavoro (in tutto circa 170 ricette preparate e scritte da Emanuela Barbero); inoltre hanno condannato la persona che si è resa responsabile del plagio e il suo editore al risarcimento del danno e di tutte le spese legali, stabilendo una elevata penale per ogni singola violazione del divieto di produzione e vendita del libro oggetto di causa.
Nel 2014 la sentenza di primo grado è passata in giudicato, diventando definitiva (sentenza del Tribunale di Milano n. 12344/2013).

Ogni ulteriore violazione dei nostri diritti sarà perseguita a termini di legge.
