Beetroot Fritters: Recipe

When I was at the market yesterday I came across the most beautiful vibrant beetroot. Immediately I was captivated, I had no idea what I would do with it, only that something so beautiful (and only $0.99) had to be enjoyed. As I continued to walk around the market trying to find inspiration, I was struck with the idea of a very simple beetroot fritter. This fritter has 5 ingredients, is light, tasty and great as either a snack or paired with a poached egg as a proper meal.

beetroot fritters recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes        /          Cooking Time: 15 minutes     /          Serves 2-6


  • 200g beetroot, grated
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 large egg (58g)
  • 85g red onion, grated
  • 15g flat leaf parsley, chopped coarsely
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10-15ml vegetable oil for frying


  • 1 egg for poaching
  • 10ml white vinegar
  • 200ml water


  1. In a bowl add all of the ingredients together. Mix well.
  2. Divide the mixture into 6 even fritters.
  3. Heat a fry pan with the oil on a high heat.
  4. Add the fritters and fry until they are golden brown on both sides. This should take approximately 10 minutes.
  5. Place the fritters on kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil, and serve.
  6. If you would like to accompany a fritter with a poached egg, heat the water and vinegar in a small fry pan.
  7. Once the water/vinegar comes to the boil, crack an egg into a small bowl then gently pour the egg into the fry pan.
  8. Poach for 4 minutes on a high heat, remove from the water with a slotted spoon and serve immediately on top of the fritter.


Serve this with a dollop of hummus or Greek yoghurt. The fritters are quiet versatile and taste great hot or cold.
