Zucchini Fritters

Grated zucchini is one of my favourite ways to boost vegetable content in a meal. I use it in muffins, loaves, meat sauces and burgers- they help to retain moisture in the dish. Fritters are another easy way to fit your five serves in, and great for those who don’t like vegetables!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes / Cooking Time: 30 minutes / Makes 6-8 fritters

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchinis, grated (I used a green one and a yellow one)
  • ½ medium Spanish onion, diced
  • 2-3 red bird’s eye chillies, finely chopped (optional)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-2 tbps plain flour
  • 1 small handful of coriander, chopped
  • Olive oil spray (for cooking)

Method

  1. Add ingredients (zucchinis, onion, chillies, eggs, flour and coriander) into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir until combined (try not to over mix the ingredients).
  3. Heat a frying pan (ideally a non-stick one) over medium heat on a stove or cook-top. When hot, spray the pan with oil. Add 2-3 heaped tablespoons of mixture to the pan , making 3-4 fritters at a time (this will depend on the size of your pan). Use the back of the tablespoon to mould into a circular shape.
  4. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface. Flip the fritters over. Cook the other sides for a further 2-3 minutes or until fritters are firm. Remove cooked fritters and place on a plate.
  5. Continue cooking more fritters until all the mixture has been used.
  6. Serve as is, or in my case, with tzatziki.
