Description

Try this fun way to incorporate more of the wonderfulness that is zucchini into your weeknight cooking!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • olive oil

Instructions

  1. Place the shredded zucchini in the center of a kitchen towel. Gather the edges of the towel together to form a ball with the zucchini. Move to the sink or place a bowl underneath, and twist the towel to wring the water from the zucchini. You should end up with about 2 cups of shredded zucchini at the end of this process.
  2. After wringing the moisture from it, place the zucchini in a bowl followed by the remaining ingredients except the eggs, and mix together.
  3. Add the eggs and stir until the mixture is evenly moistened.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Once the pan is heated, add just enough oil to the pan so that it will reach about 1/2 way up the sides of the zucchini fritters.
  5. Drop the zucchini fritters into the hot oil and press lightly to flatten. Fry until the fritter is golden brown on one side, 2-3 minutes or so, then turn, and fry on the other side.
  6. Remove the fritters from the frying pan and drain on paper towels.
