Delicious Carrot Frittatas With Mint Yogurt Dressing

Carrots are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. They are good for the eyes, promote glowing skin, boost the immune system and improve digestion. 


Ingredients: 

  • 2 large carrots, grated 
  • 3 tbsp almond meal 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped 
  • 2 tbsp shallots, thinly sliced 
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Coconut oil or virgin olive oil for shallow frying

 

Mint Yogurt Dressing

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 clove small garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Method: 
  • Whisk all ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour for flavours to blend. 


Method for frittatas: 

  • Grate the carrots and place in a large bowl. Add in bowl rest of ingredients. 
  • Combine thoroughly. It should form a thick lumpy mixture.
  • Heat a fry pan to a medium heat and add 2 tsp olive oil or coconut oil.
  • Scoop generous heaped tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and flatten into fritter shapes. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. If they start to burn too quickly, reduce the heat. 
  • Repeat with the remaining batter until done, adding a little extra oil to the pan as necessary. The oil helps to add flavour and a slight crispness to the fritters. Serve warm with mint yogurt. Enjoy!
