Crispy veggie fritters are a real comfort food and always transport me back to my Oma’s kitchen who often made potato Rösti with apple sauce for us children 🙌🏻
While potatoes and apples are off the table, this yummy swap is not! We threw together a variety of summer veggies, spices, and combined it with grain free flours and delicious creamy duck eggs 🍳 which we got from the market. They have a similar nutrient profile to regular chicken eggs, but contain a bit more fat, protein, B12 and choline which are all essential for metabolism and mitochondrial health!
These are essentially a spin on our zucchini cakes 😍
To make you need (2 servings):
1 purple onion 🧅
1 carrot 🥕
1.5 bell peppers 🫑
1/3 cup almond flour 🌰
1/3 cup coconut flour 🥥
1/3 cup coconut chips 🥥- we like dang brand lightly salted
1/2 cup chopped curly parsley 🌿
2 large duck eggs or 3 chicken eggs 🥚
Salt, pepper and cumin 🌶
Duck fat or another ancestral fat for frying 🍳
Begin by finely shredding the veggies and chopping the herbs. Season with salt, pepper and cumin and mix thoroughly with your hands. Add in the eggs and mix again.
Next, add the flours and coconut chips, and mix again, letting the batter sit for a few minutes while the duck fat heats up in a pan.
Using a spoon or your hands, scoop out some batter and form about 6 little patties. Fry them for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until crispy brown.
Serve with bacon or smoked salmon for breakfast, or with guacamole or tomato sauce as a fat-fueled snack!
