Vegan Bread Croquettes

These are fast to make, Great for using up left over mashed potatoes and most people have these ingredients in their home, One of those "occasional" meals :) 

1-1/2cups mashed potatoes
1 large onion diced
a sprinkle of pea's and corn or veg of your choice
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 day old bread slices crusts cut off
salt and pepper to taste

To a medium bowl add cold mash, peas and corn and mix, Fry off onion in a fry pan with a little olive oil till translucent, Add onion to mash and add the remaining ingredients, stir gently to combine.
Form oval shapes out of all the mixture, Get your bread and quickly dip it on one side into a bowl of water.... don't sit it in the water as it doesn't need to be water logged, place it between both palms flat and squeeze out excess water, should look like a thin sheet of damp bread, place a log of stuffing onto the bread and roll it up poking the ends inward and seal the join by pressing with your finger gently.
I fried some in a woke with oil they are the more decadent ones, I baked others with spray oil in the oven for a more health conscience approach.  Enjoy!   =)
