  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 5 cups butternut squash (shredded (about 2 lbs))
  • 1 cup onion (shredded or diced (about 1 small onion))
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2/3 cups gluten-free flour blend (I like Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut yogurt (for topping)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (for topping)


  • In a small bowl, mix together the flax meal and water. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, until it thickens and reaches a gel-like consistency.
  • In a large bowl, mix together shredded butternut squash, onion, cilantro, curry powder, salt, black pepper, gtuten-free flour blend, and flax egg mixture.
  • Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add two tablespoons of oil to the skillet.
  • Form the butternut squash mixtures into 1/4 cup balls. Add to the skillet in batches of 4 and flatted with a spatula.
  • Cook on one side for 3-4 minutes, flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, until the fritter is lightly browned.
  • Top with coconut yogurt and chopped cilantro to serve.
