Carrot and Potato Fritters [Vegan Option]

by Tansy Boggon

Carrot and potato fritters are a delicious breakfast, brunch or easy dinner option.

Try these delicious fritters made with grated potatoes, carrots, eggs, flour, cumin, garlic, spring onions and optional coriander.

They are quick and easy to make.

What to serve with carrot and potato fritters?

Enjoy them on their own with a dollop of sour cream, minted yogurt, tzatziki or raita.

You can also serve them alongside a leafy green salad, coleslaw or cucumber salad.

How to make these fritters vegan?

These fritters can easily be made egg-free for those who are vegan or have egg allergies.

Make them vegan by substituting the eggs with either:

  • 1 cup cooked red lentils
  • 1 x 400 g can of creamed corn
  • 1 cup chickpea (Besan) flour combined with 1 cup of water or non-dairy milk (if using chickpea flour, omit egg and flour)

Can you reheat carrot and potato fritters?

Carrot and potato fritters are best when served freshly made.

If you don’t plan to serve the fritters immediately, place them on a baking tray in the oven at 125oC to keep them warm.

You can store them in the fridge for 3-5 days or freeze them. Defrost them before reheating.

How do you reheat fritters?

Reheat the fritters in a frying pan on medium-high heat with some oil. Reheat both sides until warmed through.
