Baked Zucchini & Carrot Fritters (plant-based)

Recipe adapted from

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled
  • 1 ½ cups lupin flour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground sage (or herbs and spices of choice)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground chilli powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g leafy greens to serve, such as rocket or baby spinach
  • balsamic vinegar


  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ capsicum, diced
  • ½ small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. Peheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Use a food processor or hand-held grater to grate the zucchinis and carrots. A fine-medium grater is ideal.
  3. Add the grated vegetables and remainder of the fritter ingredients to a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
  4. Scoop about 2 heaped tablespoons of the mixture and shape into a circular fritter (try gently squeezing the mix between your palms to help them stick together, then shape the edges with your fingers). Place on a lined baking tray and repeat until all mixture is used.
  5. Bake the fritters for 15 minutes. Remove them from the oven, carefully flip each fritter and return them to the oven. Bake the fritters for another 5 minutes or until they are golden brown on both sides.
  6. Whilst the fritters bake, dice the salsa ingredients and mix together in a bowl.
  7. Serve the fritters warm with salsa and a side of greens, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Fluffy Pancakes


  • 40 g lupin flour 
  • 10 g almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons erythritol or 1/8 tsp pure monkfruit extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter coconut oil or ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-6 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk


  • Mix lupin flour, almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk thoroughly together in a medium bowl the eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Whisk in the dry ingredients followed by the milk, a tablespoon at a time. You can play with the thickness a bit, but I found the best consistency to be with 4 TBSP (the batter is thicker than with regular pancakes, but will spread easily into a round). Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes while you heat up a skillet or pan.
  • Add a little butter to the pan, pour in about 1/4 cup of batter, spreading it slightly to help it form a nice round (you can use a wet spoon or spatula). Cook over medium heat until the top begins to darken, flip and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Serve right away with toppings of choice.

Lupin Pasta


  • 2/3 cup Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1/2 + 1/3 cup (82g) Lupin Flour
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1 large Eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 oz (85g) Water


  1. Put all the dry ingredients: vital wheat gluten, lupin flour, salt, and xanthan gum in a bowl then whisk together. Beat 1 egg in a bowl and set aside. In a cup, mix the oil and water. Transfer the dry ingredients into the bowl of the stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment turn the mixer on to speed 2 then pour in the beaten eggs and oil-water mixture.
  2. When all the ingredients are well incorporated a dough has formed, switch to the dough hook, and knead the dough for 7 minutes. You may need to reform the dough into a ball during the first few minutes of kneading before the dough will stay in that form.

Chicken salt potato balls

  • 100g grated cheddar
  • 60ml (¼ cup) cream
  • 2 tsp chicken salt, plus extra, to serve
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lupin crumb
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 40g (¼ cup) lupin flour
  • ¾ cup crushed toasted protein flakes
  • Sunflower or vegetable oil spray
  • Mayonnaise/jalapeno sauce, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Place potatoes on a baking tray and roast for 1 hour or until just tender. Allow to cool before peeling and placing in a large bowl. Use a potato masher or ricer to mash until smooth.
  2. Stir in the cheese, cream, half the chicken salt, 1 egg and half the lupin crumb and breadcrumbs until well combined. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Use a fork to whisk the remaining egg in a bowl. Place the lupin flour and remaining chicken salt in a shallow bowl. Combine the remaining crumbs and flake crumbs in a large bowl.
