Ingredients:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/2 cup flour {I only had whole wheat on hand, ran out of GF :( }
  • 1 garlic clove {minced}
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tsp oregano {dried}
  • 2 tsp parsely {dried}
  • Vegetable oil OR Coconut oil

TIP: You can use fresh herbs too, I used fresh parsley and just tossed in a small fistful.

Makes 9 fritters.

Directions:

  1. Okay so first off grate the zucchini, using the large side of your grater, into a colander. Squish out as much water from the grated zucchini into the sink. Toss the grated zucchini into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.
  2. Add a generous amount of whichever oil you’ve chosen, coconut or vegetable, to a large sauté pan. Turn it up to Med-High heat. Make sure the oil coats the entire pan.
  3. Add in the egg, green onion, flour, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and parsley to the mixing bowl. MIX IT UP.
  4. Line a plate with paper towels.
  5. Sprinkle the sauté pan with some water to see if it’s ready. Once the oil is hot, spoon approx. a 3 tablespoon scoop of the zucchini mixture into the pan and flatten to a pancake-like shape. I was able to fit 4 fritters on my sauté pan at once.
  6. Let em cook for about 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown on each side. Then transfer to the paper towel plate and sprinkle immediately with salt.
  7. If you wanna crisp ’em up even more, turn on the oven to high {approx 425 F} and bake on tin foil for about 5 minutes until crispy ;)
  8. Serve immediately with Greek yogurt OR the following Dairy-Free Pesto Dip.
