Veggie fritters

June 19, 2010  •  Category:


Another creation from darling Eva; she took some cabbage, carrots, potato and zucchini and made these delicious fritters. She served them as a side dish  but they could just as easily constitute your lunch with a salad and some olives.


  • 1 Large potato
  • 1 chunk of green cabbage
  • 2 Large carrots
  • 2 Large zucchinis
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 bouillon cube diluted in a bit of water
  • olive oil as needed
  • 4 Large eggs
  • pepper, as needed
  • flour (2 or 3 Tablespoons)


  1. Heat a bit of oil and fry the onion (this is optional). Grate all the vegetables fine. Place in a bowl.
  2. Add the eggs, bouillon cube diluted in a tiny bit of water, pepper, flour and onion.
  3. Heat some olive oil and fry a large spoonful of this mixture on both sides. Dry on paper towels and serve hot or at room temperature.

    I have only made fritters with zucchini . I can imagine how tasty these would be with the cabbage, carrots and potato mixed with zucchini also. You are enjoying wonderful food during your visit!

    This is great! I have all the ingredients, and I have been wanting to make fritters! Lately I’ve seen so many on several blogs. Theses look perfect for us. (not that the others I’ve seen aren’t good) I like that she added potatoes with the other veggies!

  4. Lydia says:

    I love the mixed vegetables in these, both for color and flavor. I would serve with a yogurt sauce — what do you serve them with?

  5. Stella says:

    Yum Joumana, I always love fritters of any kind. And vegetable fritters with zuccini sound especially wonderful. I’ll hop over to Eva’s and see the recipe there too.
    Hope you have a relaxing holiday, weekend.

    I like fritters (roesti), but avoid them because they are fried (o.k. they are called fritters from some reason:)). Anyway…they look gorgeous!

  8. Angie's Recipes says:

    Hi Joumana, firstly neyalik that you are in Beirut. It looks gorgeous! Enjoy it. And secondly this looks so delicous and scrumptious. I want one NOW! Yumm yumm!

  15. SYLVIA says:

    There are so many variation that you can do to this recipe, changing the veggies.This is one of our family staple recipe but it’s with zucchini or parsley and herb ,we add a dollop of yogurt with garlic on the side, and it is just wonderful and addictive, crispy around the edges and moist in the center. Eva’s recipe has beautiful array of vegetables, and colors.The flavor and texture is a wonderful change for me, I am going to experiment it with cabbage and potatoes next. Thank you Joumana.

  16. Kerstin says:

    I love all the veggies you packed in these – they look amazing!

  17. Faith says:

    When my mom’s garden starts overflowing with fresh produce veggie fritters become a staple in her house and in my house (she sends me home with veggies every time I visit her!). These are absolutely beautiful!

    Dear Joumana – Just the colors in the fritters makes me drool. Every family must makes these monthly with all the left over 1/2 eaten veggies in the fridge, non? 🙂

    Its amazing how perfectly fried these fritters are. A must have this summer 🙂

    Love that you’re having such a great time in Beirut. The azure waters at the beach makes me sigh…

    Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

    Awesome! Its actually amazing article, I have got much clear idea concerning
    from this paragraph.

  62. Selena says:

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to
    know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
