Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

It can become boring having the same old vegetables day in, day out. This is where I like to be a little more creative and change things up a little. Fritters are so delicious as a side to any meal, or can even be used as a replacement for bread… mmm poached eggs on fritters….. Don’t forget you can choose any vegetable combination you like. Experiment! Try sweet potato, parsnip, pumpkin, anything you desire.


1 zucchini, grated
2 carrots, grated
1 egg, whisked
1/3 cup arrowroot powder, sifted
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
Extra virgin coconut oil, for frying


Place all ingredients together in a bowl and mix well until all combined.

Heat some coconut oil in a pan on medium heat.

Add a spoonfull of the mixture to the pan, making sure not to overcrowd and cook too many at the one time. Cook fro approximately 3-4 minutes until golden brown and then flip to cook for a further 3-4 minutes until it is golden brown.

Continue this process until all the mixture has been used.
