Vegetable Fritters with Poached Eggs Recipe

By Samara on April 11, 2017
The Karoo is known for its warm hospitality and a big part of this culture focuses on good, honest food.

Recipes are handed down from generation to generation, using only the freshest produce, creating comforting aromas and tastes that hark back to a simpler time. There is little more comforting than a home-cooked meal, especially at times when the whole family can enjoy it together.

Whether you’re spending Easter celebrating with family over a lunchtime feast, or chasing after children on their hunt for hidden treasure, we wanted to send a little bit of Karoo magic your way. This year our Karoo Kitchen will be serving up Easter eggs with a twist to start the day off right. Try something new and surprise your family with homemade vegetable fritters served with tasty poached egg for a healthy, hearty and delicious start to the weekend’s festivities.
