1 Tbsp. sugar (try Florida Crystals brand)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 cup corn meal
1 cup boiling water
3 to 4 Tbsp. plain soy milk
Vegetable oil, for frying
Margarine (try Earth Balance brand)

• In a large bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and the corn meal. Add the boiling water and stir well. Thin immediately with the soy milk to a mixture that will drop easily from a spoon. (Additional soy milk may be necessary: The mixture should be the consistency of thin mashed potatoes.)
• Heat the vegetable oil in the griddle. Drop the batter by the spoonful and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side until a brown, crunchy crust is formed and the inside is soft.
• Serve hot with margarine.
