Curried Carrot Sweet + Sweet Potato Fritters...so simple to make and packed with tons of flavor!! {vegan + gluten-free}Pin It Button - Simply Quinoa

Happy April! Can you believe that I’m sitting in Vermont right now and it’s snowing outside? Snowing! It’s only 19ºF, I’m snuggled up next to the fire with a cup of ginger tea, puppies playing at my feet, and dreaming of summer.

This time of year is so bizarre in the Northeast. It’s sunny and 70 one day and then three days later it’s snowing. With all the fluctuations in temperatures, my body kind of goes on a roller coaster as far as food cravings. Last week it was all about crispy romaine salads and this week it’s all about these warm and cozy sweet potato fritters.

These EASY sweet potato fritters are flavored with curry powder and lightened up with the addition of carrots + quinoa flour!

This recipe is a riff on my other sweet potato fritter recipe, but I decided to lighten them up a little bit by adding in carrots, and since so many of you asked last time, these fritters are egg-free.

The flavor is also a bit more complex with the addition of curry powder. I actually love how curry powder is just one spice but can bring so much to a dish. These fritters are given a distinctly ethnic flare with just one ingredient!

A super SIMPLE based for delectable curried sweet potato fritters!Light, flavorful and perfectly CRISP! These curried carrot + sweet potato fritters are also HEALTHY!

Just like the other fritters, the ingredient list is still super simple which is part of the appeal. You only need six if you’re making them vegan and five if you’re not. They’re such a cinch to whip up and make for a delicious side dish or easy lunch.

(I just ate half the batch with hummus and sprouts and it was delish!)

Curried Carrot + Sweet Potato Fritters...with only 6 ingredients, one bowl and HEALTHY too!

I’ve been craving the curry sweet potato burgers, but haven’t had the motivation to actually make them. So we’re keeping the flavor combination but simplifying it by making fritters. The combination and sweet potato and curry are a perfect match – they’re both warm and the curry really brings out the sweetness of the potatoes (and carrots in this case).

I loved them plain, but you could also have some fun with the toppings to make them even more interesting. Some ideas…

  • dairy-free yogurt with fresh ginger + parsley
  • tahini, lemon juice + pressed garlic
  • coconut cream with lime + cilantro
  • sliced green onions

Your turn…

What other ways vegetables/fruit have you used to make fritters before? I’m actually loving how simple these are so want to try some other combos. I’m thinking zucchini later this summer and maybe an apple one for the fall! (they’d be great for breakfast!)
