Rainbow Carrot Fritters

20160313_142808

I bought some lovely Rainbow Carrots from the Glasgow Food Assembly this week, they were grown locally by Gordon Caldwell, from Caldwells, Ayrshire Kitchen Garden in Turnberry, Ayrshire, himself and his team work all year round growing vegetables that are in tune with our lovely Scottish seasons. They grow everything from Turnips, Cabbage, Beetroots to Kale and much more. Here is my idea and recipe for the lovely carrots. Even better this recipe is very low in calories and fat.

 

Makes 8 fritters

3 large carrots – grated

4 Spring onions – chopped finely

2 medium eggs

1 tbsp flour

100ml cream

Salt & pepper to taste

Handful of fresh coriander or 1 tbsp dried

Handful of grated cheddar cheese or you can use Parmesan

Olive oil for cooking

  1. Grated the carrots into a large bowl. Add in the spring onions and coriander.   20160313_135846
  2. Add in the eggs, flour and cheese, this allows the mixture to bind together. Also add in the cream and seasoning and mix together.    20160313_140405  20160313_140547
  3. Taking a small handful, squeeze the excess liquid out then form into a thin round fritter shape. By removing the excess liquid this will allow the mixture to bind together better.

  5. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry for about 3-4 minute each side or until browned, try not to move the fritters while cooking as they may come apart, just leave to cook and turn over gently.

  7. Remove and serve. Yummy!!!!

These are great on their own for lunch with a salad, or even as an side dish with grilled meat or fish. I served these today for lunch with some Sweet Chilli Sauce which I have to say went fantastically.
