How to Make Fast & Easy Zucchini Fritters (Even the Kids Will Eat 'Em)!

Love zucchini? Make these easy zucchini fritters! 

You'll need:

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup chopped fine oregano
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • coconut oil, for frying

Dipping sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • lemon zest, to taste
  • chopped chives or minced cucumbers or both
  • salt and white pepper, to taste

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Grate the zucchini. Place it in a strainer and set in sink. Toss the zucchini with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Let it sit 10 minutes, then wring dry in a clean towel to remove moisture.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the oil. Slowly add flour and stir to make batter. Add zucchini last.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Cook in batches by dropping spoonfuls into the hot oil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes each side. Drain on paper towels. 
  4. Make the sauce by combining all the ingredients. 

Feel the crunch!

They are delicious ! It satisfy a my crunch addiction without the crazy caloric intake of processed crunchy carbs ! Wahhooo! If we fry at a high temp ( 375'F) the oil will just return to the pan and not soak in he food! So you can have your carb and eat it too! There is a Zucchini God! Donna John
