Easy Zucchini Fritters Recipe
So crispy and tasty, these fritters are made with a variety of grated veggies, herbs, and parmesan cheese.
- 1 Large Zucchini
- 1 Small Sweet Potato peeled
- 1 Medium Carrot peeled
- ¼ Cup Finely chopped green onion
- 3 Garlic Cloves minced
- 2-3 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
- ½ Tsp Salt, or to taste
- ¼ Tsp Ground Pepper or to taste
- 2 Large Eggs
- ½ Cup Rice Flour
- ¼ Cup Ground Parmesan Cheese
- ¼ Cup Olive or Avocado oil
The easiest way to prep the veggies is by using your food processor and set up the small shredding blade. Alternatively, you can use a medium-small grater. The veggies need to be grated in small bits so they can cook evenly.
Start by grating the zucchini, then squeeze as much water as you can and place them in a large bowl.
Continue to shred the sweet potato and carrot and add it to the bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients: green onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, eggs, rice flour, and cheese. Using your hands or a large spoon, mix thoroughly until well combined.
Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add about one spoonful of mixture into the pan, and gently press it down to create a round shape fritter.
Cook about 4 fritters at a time, for about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate until finished.
Serve with your favorite dip and enjoy!
