Corn and Lentil Fritters

The recipes of these corn zucchini fritters and pumpkin beluga lentil fritters are inspired by our roadtrip across New Zealand. During this trip I've brought various food magazines. All fritter recipes were with eggs, but I want some fritters without eggs. So I veganized and combines my own fritter recipes.
