Leek Fritters

 Recipe Courtesy of Cavemen Gourmet.




-4 large leeks
-1/2 cup almond flour
-2 pastured eggs
-1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
-sea salt


-Chop the leeks coarsely – I cut mine in 1/4 inch pieces.  Place in a medium size bowl and rinse under cold water.  I find that there’s a lot of hidden dirt in the leeks after I cut them so a quick rinse is necessary unless you like eating mud.

-Place the washed leeks in a pot of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes until tender.  Drain and set aside.  Once the leeks have cooled a bit, hand mix the leeks with almond flour, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper. Form small patties and arrange on a tray to fry.

-In a large skillet, heat olive oil and pan fry until golden (usually 2-3 minutes on each side).  Serve hot or at room temperature.


  1. Hi Benjamin,

    You could try substituting another flour like whole wheat or quinoa, but it may come out slightly different since the fat and protein contents are different. Let us know if you try something else!


  2. I made these tonight and just used regular all-purpose flour, though I adjusted some of the amounts. They came out really delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
