Zucchini Fritters



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.




Zucchini Fritters


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.

Directions

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.
