Recipe: Carrot Fritters with Yogurt Sauce

Pin It

I’ve got some yummy Carrot Fritters for you that make a fabulous side dish for either dinner or breakfast. In the morning, pair them with an omelet (topped with a touch of cheese and sliced avocado – pictured below) and a side of fruit. And in the evening, serve with seafood (such as sautéed shrimp or scallops) and an arugula salad. These fritters are great leftover as well, so feel free to make them in advance or double the recipe so you can have them with two meals in a week!

    Imagine my dismay when I went to make these and realized I was out of eggs! Ahh! So I mixed flax and water to substitute one egg and then added some mayo. I had parsley on hand so I used that. I’m excited to try different veg to match what is in season! It’s a great base recipe that you can mix and match!

    These were delicious! Especially with triple the cayenne :)
    And it’s a really forgiving recipe too, easy to sub different things in and out.

    These were really good! I subbed ginger, nutmeg and a pinch of cinnamon to make it more sweet than savory. Really yummy. My 2 yr old gobbled it up.

    I’m Gluten free so I used Chia Pancake & Waffle Mix for flour and added Fresh grated Turmeric. They turned out very good. I imagine I will make them regularly, adapting it according to available veggies and spices.

    Great Jewish food! The Eastern European Jews are experts at taking anything and chopping it up, add onion, egg, and flour, and fry away! Potato pancakes, gefilte fish, matzah balls…the list goes on. When I fry cakes like this they usually don’t turn out well, but these were a success. I used parsley instead of cilantro for personal taste. For the sauce, I didn’t have any lime juice, so I used a bit of lemon juice and a tiny squirt of dijon mustard, and probably doubled the honey. Fantastic!

    I made these today and they were delicious. I accidentally doubled the flour so I just added more water. I was a little nervous that they wouldn’t come out very good but they did! Im gonna try it again with the correct measurements and Im sure ill love them as well. The flavor is just so great!
