Ingredients List

  • Red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • 4 medium carrots
  • 1 small sweet potato

  1. Finely chop the onion and cook over medium heat with a splash of oil for 2-3 minutes, until softened
  2. Add the minced garlic, cumin and ground coriander and stir through, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat to cool
  3. Meanwhile grate the carrot and sweet potato (I used my food processor) and finely chop the coriander
  4. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, flour and baking powder then add the carrot, sweet potato, onion and coriander, stirring well to combine
  5. Heat some oil in a fry pan and spoon heaped tablespoons of the mixture into the pan. Flatten gently and cook for 2-3 minutes before flipping and cooking the other side, until golden and cooked through
  6. Repeat with the remaining mixture, adding extra oil as required
  7. Enjoy!

There are pretty much endless ways you can serve these sweet potato & carrot fritters! For breakfast I like to top them with an egg and serve with a giant pile of wilted spinach, or a dollop of greek yoghurt on top with a sprinkle of fresh coriander and mint. You can pop them in a sandwich, or serve them with a hearty salad on the side for lunch or dinner. It really just relies on your imagination!

I’d recommend cooking them as needed, but you can store the uncooked mixture in an air tight container for a day or so in the fridge, just be sure to cook them all the way through. If you do need to reheat cooked fritters I recommend a sandwich press to ensure they don’t go soggy – no one wants a soggy fritter! I use coconut oil to cook my fritters which actually adds a delicious flavour to the mix!
