Grate your way to some seriously tasty fritters for a zingy lunch or light supper! These contain Organic Burst Baobab for extra flavour and Vitamin C, to support your immune system.
Sassy, over to you:
The word ‘fritter’ immediately conjures up deep-fried patties, swimming in grease, with an overwhelmingly oily taste. These are quite the reverse: light and deliciously healthy, yet hugely nourishing and totally satisfying. They’re honestly so easy to make, too, and really eye-catching – if I do say so myself! The grated carrot, coriander and sweetcorn go incredibly well with the subtle flavour of the chickpea flour.
Ingredients (makes 6 fritters):
- 4 medium-sized carrots, peeled and grated
- 1⁄2 red onion, peeled and chopped
- 50g (1⁄3 cup) tinned sweetcorn (optional)
- 80g (1 cup) chickpea flour (gram or besan flour)
- 1tbsp Organic Burst Baobab
- 1 handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus extra for frying
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- Salt and pepper
- In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing them together with a wooden spoon and adding salt and pepper to taste.
- Form the mixture into six fritters, each 8–9cm across.
- Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
- Cooking 2–3 fritters at a time, fry for roughly 3 minutes on each side; they should be turning golden brown and cooked all the way through.
- Serve with a generous dollop of hummus!
Switch It Up
When I don’t have carrots to hand, I love using grated beetroot or sweet potato instead. Either tastes super-delicious in these fritters, each with their own unique flavour. You can also substitute the chickpea flour for brown rice flour.
