Servings 12 mini fritters
– 1 ½ cup butternut squash, shredded
– 1 large sweet potato, peeled and shredded
– ¼ cup tapioca starch
– ⅓ cup all purpose flour, substitute with gluten-free flour
– 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
– 6 Tbsp water
– 1/2 cube Edward & Sons Garden Veggie Bouillon Cube
– ⅛ tsp pepper
– 1/2 tsp salt
neutral oil for frying, I used avocado oil
Garlic Tahini Sauce
– ¼ cup tahini
– ¼ cup filtered water
– 2 tsp garlic powder
– ½ tsp salt
– ½ tsp pepper
– 2 Tbsp water, optional for thinning out your dressing.
- Place the shredded butternut squash in a colander and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt. Let the squash sit for about 20 minutes so it can release water. Wrap the squash with a kitchen linen and squeeze as much liquid out of the squash as possible.
- Meanwhile, combine the garlic tahini sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Add additional water until you have gotten your desired consistency. Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill.
- Heat a pot on medium heat and add the water. Once the water is warm add the Veggie Bouillon Cube. Mix until the cube has dissolved.
- Add all of the fritters ingredients in a large bowl and stir until combined. The mixture should be clumpy and not runny. If needed, add more flour.
- Heat a large non-stick or cast iron pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the oil, about ¼” deep. Scoop ¼ cup of the fritter batter onto the pan. Using a flat spatula gently flatten the scoop the fritters into a thick pancake shape. Scoop 2 to 3 more fritters onto the pan. Be careful not to crowd the pan while cooking.
- Fry the fritters for 3 minutes, flip, and fry for an additional 3 minutes. For a crispier fritter, cook for an additional minute on each side.
- Place the fritters on a large plate lined with a paper towel. Repeat steps until all fritters are cooked.
- Sprinkle the fritters with sea salt (optional) and serve with the garlic tahini sauce. They are best when eaten warm.
