Before you start

The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as a starter. If serving as a side dish, divide the quantities by two.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Line one or more large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: Coarsely grate the carrots, zucchini, and sweet potatoes; finely chop the green onions. Put all the vegetables in a bowl, then stir in the Parmesan cheese. Add the egg(s), Cayenne pepper, oil, a little salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well, then portion out the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet(s), forming rounds with a diameter of about 10 cm (about 4 per serving).
  3. Cook in the middle of the oven 12 min, then delicately turn over the fritters and continue to cook until they are golden-coloured, about 12 additional minutes.
  4. Serve.

Remarks

These fritters may be kept up to 3-4 weeks in the freezer. They may then be defrost and warmed up in the oven at 205°C/400°F for about 10 min or until warm.

It needed more eggs to stick together.I baked it in a 9x13 pan to make it easier.

The end result was tasty, but only the adults liked them. I found them difficult to make because they didn't stick together. The recipe made a huge batch, which required me to cook them in several batches. Not worth the time & effort.

These turned out tasty! The scallions are great in combination with the other flavours. I only managed to make 3 patties per serving (12 patties for 4 servings), compared to the 4 described in the recipe. Don't expect these to be crisp, but even though they seem soft after 12 minutes, they're still in good shape to be flipped. I did use parchment paper on a disposable cookie sheet. After the second 12 minutes, I didn' think they looked golden enough, so I flipped on the broiler just for a couple of minutes. I recommend not salting them very much during cooking and certainly not after they're done. The scallions add bite and remember that parmesan is high in sodium. They are also more filling than they may seem!

These were hit and miss. I loved them, but I was the only one in my house. I ended up cooking them longer because they weren't quite ready to flip.

I made these for a dinner party & served them on top of baby spinach with a honey mustard vinegrette. I made a yogourt sauce to go on top of the patties & sprinkled some crispy bacon on them. They were absolutely awesome!! To die for. Will make them over & over again
