Quick and Easy Carrot and Zucchini Fritters
{Gluten Free & Paleo}

Makes approx 8 – all natural, quick and easy, light and fluffy, seriously flavorful carrot and zucchini fritters

Ingredients –

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups grated zucchini – approx 1 large

1/2 cup grated carrot – approx 1 medium

1 Tablespoon coconut flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional for serving –

Red Chili, finely sliced

Coconut cream or Greek style Yogurt

Coriander (Cilantro)

Your favorite hot sauce

A squeeze of fresh lime

Method –

1 – Place eggs into a medium size bowl and lightly whisk.

2 – Add coconut flour, salt and pepper whisk again to combine.

3 – Place your grated zucchini and carrot into a clean piece of muslin or dishcloth and twist and squeeze to ring out any excess moisture.

4 – Add your zucchini and carrot to your egg mix and stir to combine.

5 – Cook your fritters in a medium size skillet or fry pan over medium heat with a little coconut oil (or cooking fat of choice) . It’s up to you how big or small you want to make your fritters.  I like mine to be on the smaller side and use a small ladle which is roughly 3 Tablespoons batter per fritter and get 8 each time. Keep in mind the bigger they are the harder they will be to flip 😉

6 – Allow your fritters to cook for 1-2 minutes, until the edges are set/nice and dry, then flip and cook for another minute.

7 – Transfer to a wire rack while your repeat this process with remaining batter.

8 – Serve hot or cold with a dollop of coconut cream or Greek style yogurt, a couple of slices of chili, a sprinkling of fresh coriander (cilantro), a splash or two of your fave hot sauce, a cheeky squeeze of fresh lime juice a whole lot of freshly ground black pepper! YUM!!!

These fritters will keep well in the fridge for up to 7 days, are 100% freezer friendly and reheat like a dream – so much to love I tell you.

Enjoy xo
