Lunchbox friendly carrot fritters

Well the school holidays sure seemed to flyyyyy and now that we’re back into swing of it, I’m going to be giving you lots of great lunchbox options for the year ahead. Kicking off with this simple, nutritious and ultimately scrumptious lunchbox combo. I’ve done a yummy cheese sandwich with Macro Ancient Grains Wholemeal Loaf, teamed with carrots fritters, avocado and fresh tomatoes for lunch. For recess it’s Macro Beetroot Lentil Bites and an organic apple – all ingredients are available at @woolworths_au. These kind of lunches are full of energising nutrition for kids and just the right amount of food so they can fit in plenty of play too. Happy Term 1 parents!

 

LUNCHBOX CARROT FRITTERS

Makes 8 fritters

Vegetarian : Dairy Free

2 free range eggs

400g Macro Organic Carrots, peeled and grated

1/4 cup Macro Organic Spelt Flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 teaspoons Macro Nutritional Yeast*

1 1/2 tablespoons Macro Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Crack eggs into a medium size mixing bowl and whisk, then add grated carrots, spelt flour, baking powder and nutritional yeast. Stir together until well combined. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a frypan on low to medium heat. Take 2 tablespoons of fritter mix and squeeze together with fingers into a small patty approximately 4-5 cm diameter. Fry in pan for 5 minutes each side, serve hot or store and pop in lunchbox for a nourishing colourful, vegetables and fibre rich lunchbox inclusion.

*If you don’t have nutritional yeast simply omit or use 2 tablespoons grated parmesan. If substituting parmesan for nutritional yeast this recipe is no longer dairy free.
