Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!
