Curried Sweet Potato + Carrot Fritters

The flavor is also a bit more complex with the addition of curry powder. I actually love how curry powder is just one spice but can bring so much to a dish. These fritters are given a distinctly ethnic flare with just one ingredient!

  • cups shredded sweet potato
  • 1 cup shredded/grated carrot
  • cup quinoa flour
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten (or 2 flax eggs)
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Coconut oil for cooking
  • Topping: yogurt ginger + parsley and/or sliced green onions


  1. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potato, carrots, flour, egg(s), curry powder, salt and pepper. Stir the mixture together with a spatula or wooden spoon until combined.
  2. Add 2 - 3 tablespoons of coconut oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, form small patties out of the sweet potato mixture in your hands.
  3. Cook the fritters until golden brown, about 2 - 3 minutes, then flip cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the fritters to a cooling rack. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.
  4. Serve slightly warm as is (or with a quick mixture of non-dairy yogurt, ginger and parsley or simply sliced green onions).
