Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F (120°C).

  3. Mix the rutabaga, cheese, eggs, coconut flour, turmeric, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Let sit to absorb flour for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, until melted.
  5. Form the batter into 12 patties.
  6. Working in batches, fry for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip, and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  7. Reserve cooked patties to warm oven. Repeat until all the batter is gone.
  8. Serve cooked fritters with a green salad, sliced avocado and a dollop of ranch-flavored mayonnaise.

Tip!

Have fun with this recipe! These fritters are amazing as they are, but there are also lots of ways to “guild the lily.” Add fresh or dried herbs to the batter. Spice them up with chili flakes. Switch up the cheese to play with different depths of flavor. Or double the umami with a touch of tamari. They’re your delicious blank canvas!

    I like the sound of this recipe and intend to try it out soon.

    I also appreciate that you have a global readership and are making great attempts at simplifying measurements to suit the US and metric markets.

    I'm from the UK so I prefer to switch to metric weights (grams).

    But I'm struggling with dl for liquid quantities. In this recipe, we're required to find 2 2/5 dl mayonnaise. I've discovered that dl stands for decilitre. I've never seen it in a British recipe. And I can't easily envisage this amount. Mayonnaise would typically be measured in tablespoons.

    Is 'dl' the usual measurement for liquids throughout the metric cooking world? It wouldn't be surprising to discover that the UK is the only country to use grams for weight, litres for large quantities, and teaspoons and tablespoons for small quantities. If so, I'll just have to suck it up.

    (P.S. I quite understand that a Swedish website uses the Swedish/US term 'rutabaga' for the vegetable that we call 'swede' in this country :))

    I had this problem too. 1dl is 100ml so 2 2/5dl is 240ml. Hope that helps. Also when you cook them, watch them like a hawk because the butter makes them go from delicious, crispy brown to horrible, burned black very quickly! I had mine with avocado and some finely chopped butter-fried mushrooms. Darn tasty!

    actually the whole of Africa also uses grams,liters and teaspoons. tablespoons, just the US is still stuck with the Imperial system.

    The whole toggle to remove recipes from menu thing doesn't work. kind of disappointing.
