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:
