Inspired by the Veggie Desserts blog we decided to scan the internet for one of our favourite delicious recipes – a breakfast made with vegetables! Starting with your writer’s very own Kale, Carrot & Honey Fritters!
What better way to kick off a day than with a breakfast filled with nutritious and tasty veggies? Much better than stuffing your belly full of wheat, cheese and cereal!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
- 5 to 6 cups very thinly sliced kale ribs removed into thin ribbons
- 4 carrots, peeled into ribbons with vegetable peeler
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 eggs, lightly beaten
- Almond oil or coconut oil
Here’s how to make them:
To make fritters, toss the strips of carrot, kale, and honey together in a large bowl. Add flour and toss until vegetables are coated. Stir in eggs.
Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. If you don’t have a skillet a frying pan or wok will do. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of your choice of pan. Add 1/4 of the vegetable mixture to skillet at a time, gently pressing it out flat. Cook for approximately 3 to 4 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Then flip each over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes until each begins to brown on the bottom. Serve topped with some hot sauce.
