This recipe is similar to my Golden Beet Bread recipe. Golden or yellow beets have a flavor that reminds me of corn, so this is a great gluten free, grain free alternative to traditional hush puppies. These can be baked or fried.
3 cups chopped Golden Beets
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
black pepper, to taste
Coconut oil for frying (or if baking, add 1 Tbsp of melted coconut oil to the mix)
Roast beets at 350 degrees until soft for (45-60 minutes). This can be done a head of time.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add beets and puree using an immersion blender. This could also be done with a food processor. After beets are pureed, add almond flour, coconut flour, salt, onion powder and pepper.
For deep frying: Fill deep fryer with coconut oil. Don't heat about 350! Shape batter into balls and place in fryer basket. Fry until golden brown.
For baking: Preheat oven to 350. Shape batter into balls. Line cookie sheet with parchment. Bake for 20-30 minutes. The baked puppies come out a golden yellow and they shrink slightly compared to the fried ones.
