Beetroot Banana Fritters came about inspired by a compatriot vegan chef, Raw Chef Yin, who kindly gave me a copy of her book. We were both speakers at the international Bali Vegan Festival 2018. Here I use beetroots and sunflower seeds to add depth.  Dehydration ensures that the beetroot naturally caramelises with the banana in the dehydrator.  What I love about this dish is biting into the fritters and getting a moist beetroot/banana layer full of goodness.
