Hey there! We have a great recipe for you this week. We LOVE curry, chili powder and turmeric around here so if you do as well then you are in luck. I wanted to make a veggie something that was quick, delicious and healthy using simple ingredients that I tend to have on hand. So what came to mind immediately? Carrots, of course. I usually buy the huge 5 pound bag and start to run out of things to do with them by the time they are getting soft. We were at this point and I was feeling like having a savory pancake-y type of thing. The baby fell asleep, I rolled up my sleeves and it worked out!
Side note-there is turmeric in this recipe and typically in almost all savory things we make-in case you haven’t heard, curcumin, a component of turmeric, has been studied for some time as it had shown potential to be therapeutic for many inflammatory health conditions. I am so happy to see it is being further studied and is now widely recognized as having health benefits, I was just reading this report on it.
We are always looking for ways to get the little miss to eat more vegetables and this was one way that actually worked. She didn’t even notice the onions! I made her a sandwich with these fritters using hummus as a spread, adding cucumbers, grassfed organic cheese and certified humane, nitrate and preservative-free lunchmeat. My husband tried it and was a fan as well. I ate them warm and topped with eggs, then even a few times plain (and cold) as a quick snack.
If you have a food processor this will be a breeze to prep, if not take into account that it will be a few more minutes prep time to shred the veggies 😉 A food processor can save a lot of time all around and it is very versatile with the accessory kit. I find it easy and efficient to use. I recommend finding a decent one that is within your price range, I have an older model very similar to this and I love it!
We used this potato starch and coconut oil. We tend to try and buy Bob’s Red Mill products as much as possible since it is local to us! We usually get our spices in bulk at Natural Grocers or Winco. I just discovered that Winco also has a LOT of healthy foods at much lower prices than we were used to paying-hooray for saving money!
These were delicious plain-warm or cold-topped with butter, guacamole or hummus and as “bread” for a sandwich. Let us know how you used them!
