These easy carrot fritters are such a delicious side dish! There are so many flavors going on in this healthy gluten-free recipe.
I rarely cook carrots. They’re one of the few veggies that everyone in my family likes raw, so why mess with that?
But when I saw a recipe for carrot fritters in Savory Magazine, I was intrigued. My aversion to cooked carrots was overtaken by my curiosity about this idea. Nuts and chives and carrots together in one place? I had to try this.
Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t stop eating them! The sweet, savory, crunchy combination is so delicious.
I adapted the recipe according to what I had on hand, and I made them gluten-free. I’m so glad to have discovered this new side dish. I’ll be making it often when I get a big pile of carrots from my farm share this summer. They’ll be great to have on hand in the freezer for a night when I need an extra vegetable for dinner.
See how easy these are to make in this short video:
- 1 lb carrots
- 1/2 cup pecans finely diced
- 2 scallions diced
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup gluten-free flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- Grate the carrots and place them in a large bowl. Add the diced pecans and scallions, and stir to combine.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the flour and salt. Add the egg mixture to the carrots, and stir gently to combine.
- Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Form the carrot mixture into 1/4 cup patties. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Repeat until all the fritters are made.
