Courgette, sweet potato and quinoa fritters

These super simple and nutritious fritters take just a few minutes to make and they’re a great way of using your leftover quinoa. The eggs in the recipe help to bind the fritters and add extra protein, however then can be left out to make the recipe suitable for vegans.

Ingredients How to make


  • 50 g Quinoa
  • 100 g Courgette
  • 100 g Sweet potato
  • 25 g Coriander
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp Dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp Dried chilli flakes (optional)

How to make

  • Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions.
  • Grate the courgette and sweet potato and squeeze all of the liquid out from it.
  • Crush the garlic cloves.
  • Once the quinoa is cooked, add it along with all other ingredients into a large mixing bowl and combine.
  • Using your hands, mould the mixture into flat round discs.
  • Add a little MCT oil into a pan on a medium heat and cook the fritters for around two minutes on each side.
