  3. I often try these types of fritters but I find they fall apart at cooking. Havent tried yours yet. Any tips girls?

  4. Hi guys, any suggestions for an egg replacement? My boyfriend can’t eat them 🙁

  7. Ensure you grate the veg finely and use a binding agent like a sufficient amount of eggs; personally I add an extra starch like rice flour or potato flour. Usually I use a bit of organic self raising flour (yes, gluten, but I digest it just fine!). Also make sure to squeeze excess juice from grated veg.

  8. Hi Terri, yes you can use zucchini! Salt the grated veg, leave it to sit in a colander for a few minutes in the sink and then squeeze thoroughly. You can always add the juice to a soup later but you don’t want it in your fritter mix!

  9. I used carrot with sweet potato, which was very nice. My mum doesn’t like paprika so I drizzled lemon juice over them in the griddle pan. So yummy and filling.

  11. Girls……yummo……
    Both kids loved these!!!!

    Thank you thank you…so very hard when you have a little one intolerant …to just about everything…and to find your website…well you’ve been a lifesaver!!!


  12. I am sure this does not matter to you, but it might to others who are gluten intolerant. Rice and potato flours are gluten free.

  14. Just wondering if you’ve tried to freeze them and if that worked? I know you can’t freeze white potato and have never tried to freeze sweet potato. Hoping to knock up a few batches and get ahead of the morning calamity by having these ready. Thanks 🙂

  16. Yum, these are good! First couple fell apart so I added a little coconut flour to bind and everything stayed together nicely after that.

  20. Thanks for the great recipe, quantities of egg to sweet potato is perfect! I have allergies to nightshades so I switch the paprika for toasted and ground coriander seeds and top the avo off with coriander leaves and a squeeze of lime (if I have them on hand). YUM 🙂
