In the UK, Coeliac Awareness Week runs from 11-17 May, 2020.

Promoted by Coeliac UK, the week aims to raise awareness of Coeliac Disease, and to bring the gluten-free community together.

We thought we’d play our part this week by sharing some great gluten-free recipes. Today, we’re going with these Balsamic Beetroot And Carrot Fritters with Garlic and Mint Yoghurt.


  1. Place the grated beetroot and carrots in a sieve over a bowl or your sink and squeeze as much liquid out as possible.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the beetroot, carrot, eggs, spring onions, feta, flour, mint, salt and pepper. Mould into fritters.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a large non-stick frying-pan and fry the fritters on a medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.
  4. To make the garlic and mint yoghurt, simply mix all the ingredients together, season to taste, and serve.
