Ingredients

  • 2 onions, mined
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 scallions, thinly slices, about 1/4 cup
  • 2 carrots, grated, about 1 cup grated carrots
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons salt, more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons pepper, more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 medium beets shredded, about 2 cups, water squeezed out
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 cups avocado oil

Instructions

1.In a medium skillet sauté onion and garlic until the onion turns translucent and the garlic begins to brown. Turn off heat, let cool and place in a medium mixing bowl.
2. Add scallions, carrots, spices, parsley, lemon juice, and almond flour.
3. Place the shredded beet in a paper towel or cheesecloth, squeeze out as much liquid as you can, and add it to the carrot mixture.
4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and tapioca powder to form a thick paste. Add the paste to the beet/carrot mixture and stir until just combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with avocado oil.
6. Once the oil is at frying temperature (365℉), spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into the pan to make a fritter that is about 2 inches in diameter. Use the spatula to help form it. Let fry for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until the fritters start to crisp up and turn a deep brown. Repeat with remaining veggie batter.
7. Place the cooked fritters on a plate lined with paper towels and set aside until ready to serve. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

  • Recipe inspired by Persiana cookbook by Sabrina Ghayour
