I love making zucchini fritters when I have extra zucchini on hand. Simple to make with minimal ingredients and so yummy for breakfast, appetizer or snack.
I used almond flour for a gluten free option but you can use any flour.
Ingredients 2 large or 3 medium zucchini, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup almond flour ( or all purpose flour)
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
Serving: yogurt or sour cream with green onions.
Cut off the ends the zucchini and grate using the large holes of a grater. Place in a colander set over a bowl or in the sink. Sprinkle with salt and mix together together. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes to draw the moisture out of the zucchini.
Using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the zucchini. You can also use a cheesecloth or dish towel to squeeze out the liquid.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg. Add in zucchini, flour, green onions, salt and pepper and mix together.
Add oil to a large pan over medium heat. Add golf ball sizes of zucchini and flatten with a spatula. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with yogurt or sour cream topped with green onions.
