Winter Squash Fritters
Ingredients
  • 3 cups roasted winter squash, such as acorn or sweet dumpling
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons potato flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup ghee or clarified butter
Instructions
  1. Puree the roasted squash in a food processor blender until smooth; scrape into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk the beaten eggs into the squash, then stir in the remaining ingredients except the ghee until well-blended.
  3. Heat the ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water added to the pan sizzles. Working in batches, pour the fritter batter by 1/4 cupfuls into the skillet and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Allow to drain briefly on paper towels and serve immediately.
