Cooking carrots releases their natural sugars, making these patties incredibly sweet — better than candy! Try substituting them for the standard sweet potato casserole or candied yams. This recipe uses raw carrots, but you can boil or steam the carrots until just tender before grating them, in which case you can get away with using only one egg.

Ingredients

Preparation

Mix the carrots, onions and eggs. Add the flour and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, drop carrot batter into the skillet in heaping tablespoonfuls. Using your spoon or a spatula, flatten each patty and fix the shape if needed, making it round or oval.

Reduce heat to medium, cover, and let cook about 2 minutes, checking after 45 to 60 seconds to make sure the patties are not burning. When they are nicely browned, flip with a spatula or a fork, cover and cook another 1 to 2 minutes until the second side is browned. Repeat the process with the remaining batter. You can drain the patties on paper towels to soak up excess oil. Serve warm, topped with sour cream or plain yogurt.
