These potato fritters with red lentils are super easy to make and so delicious! They’re best with spicy sriracha mayonnaise. The recipe for these fritters is of course 100 % vegan!
I’ve always loved fritters with apple sauce! My grandma used to make the best vegetable fritters in the whole wide world. As a kid, I just couldn’t get enough of them! I haven’t made fritters for quite a while, but these vegetable fritters with red lentils turned out so delicious and comforting.
By using red lentils you can add some extra protein to your fritters. If you’re looking for more vegan potato recipes, you might also like my papas bravas with aioli. They’re also delicious with the sriracha mayonnaise. I also love adding potatoes to my vegan chickpea curry.
Are potato fritters vegan?
Many potato fritters contain eggs and are, thus, not vegan. However, it’s super easy to omit the egg and make vegan fritters. They will still hold together very well. Some fritters are “accidently vegan”, meaning that the recipe doesn’t contain any animal products for unknown reasons. Good for us vegans!
What You Need For These Potato Fritters:
- red lentils
- one small red onion
- all-purpose flour
- smoked and regular paprika powder
- salt and pepper
As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate recipe box at the end of this post.
You can also sub half of the carrots with zucchini if you want to add more vegetables. Or even use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. I’ve also found a recipe for Greek zucchini fritters I would like to try.
These Vegetable Potato Fritters Are:
- easy to make
- ready in less than 25 minutes
- packed with protein (thanks to the red lentils!)
How Do You Make Potato Fritters Without Eggs?
Grate the potatoes and the carrots. In a large bowl, combine them with the cooked red lentils, garlic, onions, and the spices. Heat some oil in a large pan, and add about 1 1/2 heaped tablespoons for each fritter. Cook them on medium heat in a son-sticky pan for three to four minutes on each side. Alternatively, you can also make them in the oven for an oil-free version.
What to Have with Potato Fritters:
Potato fritters are great with a green salad and a delicious dip. My favorite dip for vegetable fritters is spicy sriracha mayonnaise. So yummy and super easy to make! Potato fritters are also great with apple sauce. This definitely brings up childhood memories for me!
I hope you like these veggie fritters as much as we do!
