These fritters are best eaten warm the day of making!

2 kohlrabi
1 carrot
1 egg
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne
½ cup grapeseed or vegetable oil (enough for ¼-inch depth in a large skillet)
½ avocado
¼ cup plain yogurt
½ lemon
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Green onions (for garnish)

  1. Cut the leaves off the kohlrabi and peel the bulb.
  2. Peel 1 carrot.
  3. Shred the vegetables in a food processor, or by hand using a grater.
  4. Squeeze the shredded vegetables in a tea cloth (or with your hands) to remove moisture, then add to a medium bowl with 1 egg, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon cayenne. Mix to combine.
  5. Place ½ cup oil in a large skillet (enough for ¼-inch depth).
  6. Heat the oil over medium high heat, then place small patties of the fritter mixture into the oil.
  7. Fry on one side until browned, then fry on the other side.
  8. Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  9. In a small bowl, mix ½ avocado, ¼ cup plain yogurt, juice from ½ lemon, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt to make the avocado cream (or blend the ingredients together in a food processor).
  10. Serve fritters with avocado cream and sliced green onions.
