Zucchini Fritters

If you are looking for a new way to enjoy vegetables or trying to get your kids to eat more veggies, make this delicious Zucchini Fritters recipe.

Yield: Makes 11-12 zucchini fritters

  • 2 medium zucchinis, washed
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, stems removed and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • canola oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Using a grater (large holes), grate zucchini. Transfer zucchini to a clean piece of cheesecloth and cover. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Place zucchini in a medium bowl; add the parsley, beaten eggs, basil, garlic, lemon zest, flour, turmeric powder, salt and black pepper. Mix to combine well.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until oil sizzles when you drop a small amount of zucchini mixture into the pan. Reduce heat to medium. Drop about 2 tablespoons zucchini mixture into the skillet. Flatten slightly.

Cook, turning once, until browned, 4-6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel to drain off excess oil.

Add more oil during cooking if necessary, I used 4 tablespoons oil. Repeat with remaining zucchini mixture.

Serve hot or cold with bread and low fat sour cream on the side or place one zucchini fritter on a sliced baguette and top with a sun dried tomato and one teaspoon of sour cream. Garnish with parsley and serve.
