Zucchini Fritters

Fritters make a wonderful side and a way to change up using your vegetables other than just roasting them. You could also replace the zucchini with squash or broccoli (just finely chop your broccoli in a food processor).

Prep Time: 20 Minutes (to include shredding and draining zucchini) | Cook Time: 10 Minutes


  • 2 Cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium size zucchini)

  • 1 egg beaten

  • 1/3 cup flour

  • ½ tsp onion powder

  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 1 tbsp thinly sliced green onion

  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Place shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with a bit of salt.  Let it sit and drain for about 10 minutes. 

  2. Using your hands or a cheese cloth squeeze out as much water from the zucchini as possible.

  3. Mix together all of the ingredients, other than the olive oil, in a medium sized bowl

  4. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium high heat

  5. Using your hands, pack the zucchini mixture into about 8-10 fritters.  Place them in the hot pan about an inch apart.

  6. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until slightly browned and crispy

  7. Serve warm alone, with sour cream, or a dip of your choosing
