Air Fryer RecipesWeight Watchers Recipes


Cabbage fritters are easy to make, fun to eat, and taste great with sour cream or a homemade Chipotle dipping sauce. Easily bindable and cooked on parchment paper mess-free, I love how they turn out with caramelized crispy edges and soft crunchy inside, thanks to the crunchy cabbage.


  • 2 cups raw cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream, plus more for serving
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning of choice. I used Mrs. Dash Seasoning blend
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil or preferred vegetable oil (for brushing the fritters)


  1. Preheat Air fryer to 375F/190C
  2. Remove the top leaves from the cabbage.
  3. Finely shred the cabbage. I use a Braun food processor for easy cabbage and carrot shredding and chopping
  4. In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage, shredded carrot, salt, pepper, seasoning, sour cream, baking soda, egg, and flour. Mix thoroughly.
  5. If desired, add green onions, garlic and herbs.
  6. Using your hands, pick up the small amount of mixture (about 2 tablespoons and roll the mixture into a ball shape. Note, if the mixture starts to get sticky, wet your hands a little bit.
  7. In a single layer assemble the balls in the air fryer basket or tray.
  8. Using a spoon, gently press the balls into a pancake shape, approximately ½ inch in thickness.
  9. Lightly spray each fritter with oil spray. Alternatively, you can brush with oil. Air fry 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown with caramelized edges.
  10. Let them cool for a few minutes. Enjoy warm or chilled with a dollop of sour cream (about 1 teaspoon) or dip them into delicious garlicky Chipotle sauce.


You can use parchment paper to lay the cabbage fritters on. They will be easy to flip and will not stick. Still use oil though to brush on the fritter.

You can substitute for gluten-free flour or almond flour.

You can add any seasoning of your choice.

Add a few fresh herbs, if desired. I love to use finely chopped fresh dill and finely chopped green onion.

Add cooked bacon pieces or bacon crumbles, a dollop of sour cream on, top with green onions or chives and you have a complete loaded cabbage fritter experience.
