People are always asking me for lunch ideas, or alternatives to sandwiches and salads, and these fritters are one of my favourites to pack into lunchboxes as a light bite. They work equally well as a side dish or as finger food for relaxed lunches with friends. I serve these fritters with a refreshing tzatziki.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 large carrots, peeled and grated
1 sweet potato, peeled and grated
1 red onion, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 heaped teaspoon ras el hanout, (optional)
3 medium eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons chickpea flour or other gluten-free flour
100g feta, crumbled
handful fresh parsley leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon lucy bee coconut oil
himalayan salt
ground black pepper

For the tzatziki

Quantity Ingredient
1 garlic clove
1/2 cucumber, peeled and deseeded
100g greek yoghurt
handful chopped fresh mint, (optional)
himalayan salt
ground black pepper

Method

  1. To make the tzatziki, place the garlic with 1 tsp of salt in a pestle and mortar. Blend to a very fine paste. Grate the peeled cucumber into a clean tea towel, then squeeze to remove as much liquid as possible. Place the cucumber into a bowl, then add the remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the grated carrots, sweet potato and red onion, then mix in the garlic and ras el hanout, if using.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the beaten eggs and flour, then stir into the vegetables with the feta and parsley.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Shape the fritter ingredients into patty-sized balls, then, working in batches, add to the frying pan and flatten using a spatula.
  5. Cook for about 3 minutes each side, being careful not to burn them. Serve golden and slightly crunchy with a dollop of Tzatziki.
