Paleo Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

When people get over the horror that I don’t start my day with a bowl of Crapflakes, they are always interested in what I eat for brekky. “Like, so, do you just eat bacon and eggs, like, everyday??” While that sounds delicious, even I need a breather from that piggy goodness. Team these with some smoked salmon and avo like a posh mofo.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 zucchini, shredded
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Handful of chopped fresh dill
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil

Method

  • Shred the zucchini in your food processor (or grate it, then give yourself an uppercut for not making your life better by buying a food processor).
  • Put the zucchini in a piece of muslin/cheesecloth or a clean tea towel. Sprinkle on a pinch of sea salt and leave for 10 minutes.
    Peel and shred the carrot, slice the onion and chop the dill.
  • Wrap the zucchini up in the cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Mix the zucchini and all other ingredients except the oil in a big bowl.
  • Heat a large frying pan over a low to medium heat. Pop in a tablespoon of oil for each batch.
  • Cook for about 3-4 minutes each side until golden.
