Carrot Ginger Fritters

Seasonal Recipe of the Week
Here's another fritterlicious treat for you to try!

4 cups grated carrots
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1/2 cup chopped chives
1/2 cup finely diced red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

Combine carrots, ginger, chives, and red pepper in a medium bowl. Add eggs and lightly mix. Combine flour and baking soda and stir into carrot mixture. Form mixture into little balls or patties and fry in hot oil. Cook till they are golden brown (which only takes a few moments) and serve. This goes great with a simple Asian dip. I just mix together soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, some orange juice concentrate and some water to dilute. If you want some heat, stir in some Szechwan pepper flakes.
