Keto friendly recipes: Low Carb Vegie Fritters

When you first start out on a low carb diet you think you can never get sick of bacon and eggs. A few months later and you find yourself dragging your feet towards the skillet! Here's my favourite brunch treat - Corn Fritters - made keto friendly.


Low Carb Vegie Fritters

1 capsicum (bell pepper)
1/2 onion
1 cup raw spinach
1/2 cup almond meal/flour
3 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying

Method


  • Dice the onions and capsicum into small pieces, about 1cm (1/4 inch) in width
  • Hold the spinach in a bunch with your hand and shred into small slivers
  • Put in a mixing bowl then add the almond flour



Mix the almond flour through until the vegies are coated in the flour
Crack the eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper and the almond milk and then beat until well mixed



  • Add the liquid egg mix into the mixing bowl and stir well, the almond flour should thicken and cause a batter with the liquid
  • If the consistency is wrong add another tbspn of almond flour



  • Lightly oil a flat pan or skillet and heat on a medium flame
  • Add a wooden spoon full of the vegetable batter to form each fritter
  • Keep on a medium heat or the fritter will burn before the egg and vegetables cook through



  • When the sides of the fritters begin to cook flip quickly with a spatula and fry on the other side until cooked through (should be 2-3 mins or less)

  • Top with your favourite keto friendly toppings - here I have pictured Sour Cream and Tapatio Hot Sauce and Goat Cheese with Basil Pesto
  • This recipe should make 6 fritters - 2 per person is a solid meal. 
  • Nutritional info below is for the whole batch. Macros per person are 301 calories, 9 carbs (6 net), 25g fat.
  • If you want to drop the calories and/or fat then omit the toppings and dust lightly with salt and pepper before serving
