Looking for a quick and easy but yet tasty meal for these hot summer nights? I’ve got you covered. These super quick and easy croquettes are just perfect as a tasty side or appetizer. Vegan and crispy, this will quickly be your favourite way to eat up those veggies!
I definitely love summer. The heat, the sweat and the sun. Nevertheless, I have to admit I am not really a fan of cooking during summer. Most of all, whatever I prepare finishes up so quickly I don’t even get time to take pictures. Which is great, as it means it was delicious, but not amazing since I’d like to follow up with the recipe on the blog. Luckily enough, I managed to take a couple of pictures of these amazing croquettes. As I recently bought an AirFrier, I really had to try it out for these croquettes. Believe me, it’s a lifesaver, especially during summer!

Four Ingredients Vegan Carrot Croquettes
- 1 Pot with Salted Boiling Water
- 1 electric blender
- 2 Bowls
- 1 Air Frier optional – Oven otherwise
- 500 gr Carrots
- 40 gr Flour I used 25 gr Semolina and 15 gr Hazelnut Flour but you can use only Semolina or Plain
- 30 gr Breadcrumbs
- 40 gr Yeast Flakes or Grated (Vegan) Parmesan
- 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds Optional
- 1 tbsp Thahini Optional
- 1 tsp Salt, Pepper and Rosemary
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- Chop the carrots roughly and boil them for about 10-15 minutes, until tender. Drain, let them cool slightly and blend them with the electric food chopper, adding some tahini or a tbsp of oil, until you get a smooth mixture. Place the carrots in a clean bowl.
- In a small bowl, mix together flour, breadcrumbs, yeast flakes or parmesan and sesame seeds. Add 2/3 of the flour mixture to the carrots, season with salt pepper and rosemary and mix all together. You should get a tender but yet workable mixture. Add more flour in case the mixture results too liquid.
- Make the croquettes as you prefer. I made some cubes but balls or cylinders work too. Dust the croquettes in the leftover flour mixture and place them in the airfryer or an oven tray. Spray some Olive oil on top and bake at 200C for 8 minutes in the airfrier or 1-20 in the oven, until golden. Enjoy!
I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
My cooking is healthy, fun and colorful… and really tasty!
