These naturally gluten-free crunchy carrot fritters can be served as an elegant starter with your favourite dipping sauce or enjoyed as a tasty lunch. If there are any leftovers, they reheat well for a snack the next day. I served them with a leafy green salad and a dairy free, eggless mayonnaise made with organic sunflower seeds, water, lemon juice and sunflower oil. Sunflower seed mayonnaise, adapted from here, makes a great plant-based alternative to traditional egg based mayonnaise, esp. if you have egg allergy but still want to enjoy the creaminess and richness of the sauce.

Sunflower Seed MayonnaiseFritters
  • 60 g Organic sunflower seeds
  • 80 ml Water
  • 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 100 ml Sunflower oil
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 250 g Carrots, grated (about 5 medium)
  • 2 Scallions, chopped
  • 4 tbsp Parsley (or cilantro), chopped
  • 60 g Chickpea flour
  • 2 Eggs, large
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Ghee or oil for frying
  1. Place sunflower seeds in a food processor or blender and process until finely ground. Add water and lemon juice. Blend together until combined. Gradually add in sunflower oil until you have achieved a thick creamy mayonnaise like consistency. If you want a thinner pouring consistency, blend in a little more water and I would suggest going lightly and adding 1-2 tablespoons at a time. It will keep for a week in a sealed container kept in the fridge.
  2. Peel and coarsely grate carrots. Place into a large bowl with the chopped scallions and parsley or cilantro. Add in chickpea flour, eggs and cumin powder. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan with ghee or oil over a medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of batter per fritter to frying pan. Cook fritters in batches for 4-5 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through.
  4. Serve warm with prepared sunflower seed mayonnaise and scatter with the chopped herbs over.

That would be my main lunch and I would eat a ton of them :) Why isn't there mustard in that mayo? We have sunflower veggie pates and spreads here in healthy food stores. I grind sunflower each morning with other seeds and mix them with coconut oil for my morning spread.

What a beautiful dish and that eggless mayo! I’m ready to get back into cooking, I’ve taken a bit of a break because we’ve been working on a deck project in our home, and I’m usually too tired to try anything new. But we’re in the homestretch and should be 95% finished by tomorrow, i just have to order the polycarbonate roof which takes four weeks.

Ooh those fritters look so crunchy and delicious. Gram flour is just great for this sort of thing. I'm intrigued by your sunflower mayonnaise. I love my vegan mayo, but it's always good to try something different.
