Hi everyone and here’s a pic of tonight’s tea. I made the fritter idea up and although they fell apart a bit, they were well yummy.
Chop half a swede and 3 medium carrots into small chunks, steam for about ten minutes then mash with butter. Stir in a fried onion, a large egg and a handful of grated cheddar. Fry gently in olive oil for 5 mins each side.
Here I’ve served them with salad made from kale (cavolo nero, ‘massaged’ for 5 mins in olive oil), roasted plums, tomatoes and a dressing made from tahini, lemon juice and a drop of water.
It’s not that low carb as swede has 5g carbs per 100g and one medium sized carrot has approx 6g just on its own! So per fritter I imagine they’re about 12g carbs? I’m afraid I don’t have a Scooby’s about calories...mea culpa.
Oh yep, the plum isn’t exactly the lowest in carbs either! But overall, a very nice tea 🍑🥬🍠
