200g raw beetroot, peeled and grated

200g carrots, peeled and grated

8 spring onions, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

To serve

80g rocket leaves

½ cucumber, sliced

80ml soya yoghurt

Small handful parsley, chopped

4 crusty rolls


  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C fan/ gas mark 4. Put the chickpea (gram) flour into a bowl and add the beetroot, carrot and onions. Mix to fully combine.

    Transfer the fritters to a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. While the fritters are cooking, mix the chopped parsley into the yoghurt.

  4. Step 4

    Remove the fritters from the oven and serve two fritters per portion with the rocket and cucumber salad, yoghurt and a crusty roll.
