These fried tortitas are served with a light tomato sauce. The acidity of the tomato balances the fat from frying. They can also be served with a fruit puree instead of the tomato sauce. This recipe is from Maria Eugenia Valdes Villarreal.
1 cup rolled oats
2 small onions, minced
5 tablespoons chopped parsley
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
For Sauce:
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 lb tomatoes, quartered and seeded
1 onion, minced
1/2 bay leaf
1/2 sprig fresh thyme
1 sprig fresh parsley
Oatmeal Fritters Recipe at
In a bowl, mix the oats, onions, parsley, eggs, and salt thoroughly. Let rest for 5 minutes.

FOR SAUCE: Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a medium frying pan. Blend the tomato and onion in a blender and strain on top of the hot oil. Add the herbs and cook over high heat until the fat rises to the surface, about 8 minutes. Remove the herbs and set the pan aside.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a seperate medium frying pan. Put 1 rounded tablespoon of the oat mixture at a time into the pan and flatten with a spatula. Cook, turning once, over medium heat until golden.

Place the fritters in the tomato sauce and cook over very low heat for approximately 10 minutes, turning once. Serve.

Savary No - Desert Yes
Hate the recipe as a savory dish. However, change the tomato sauce to a balsamic strawberry sauce (warming frozen strawberries, 2 tsp of vanilla, half to 2/3 cps. water, a pinch of salt... then adding sugar, balsamic vinegar to taste)and you have a winner as a warm desert.
