Turnip & Cauliflower Fritters


  • 1 turnip , diced into baby bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup roughly chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 small leek , finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • A touch of flour if mixture is too wet
  • Coconut oil for frying


  • Add the turnip, cauliflower and leek to a steamer basket; steam for 10 minutes or until soft. You want the turnip to still hold its shape
  • Once cooked add ingredients to a bowl along with the egg, coconut and mix to combine
  • If mixture is too wet, add a little flour (the mixture should be still quite loose - you shouldn't be able to handle it with your hands)
  • Add coconut oil to a non-stick frying pan and using a tablespoon add a dollop of the mixture to the pan. Flatten a little with the back of the spoon.
  • Cook until golden, drain on paper towel
  • Serve warm


Will make approximately 8 to 10 baby fritters
