ZESTY ZUCCHINI FRITTERS
2 cups grated zucchini (one medium sized zucchini)
1/2 small onion finely diced
1 large egg
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and Pepper
*You could add garlic or herbs for some extra flavor- Serves 6
- To make these zucchini patties, grate the zucchini, then pat it dry with some paper towels (try to get as much of the moisture out as possible, without mushing up the zucchini). Place all the grated zucchini in a bowl, and add in the finely diced onion, Parmesan cheese (you can add in whatever cheese you like), the egg and flour and stir well. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat the olive oil in a large pan and using a 1/4 cup measure, drop the zucchini batter into your pan, patting it down a little with a spatula. Cook on medium heat for about 2 – 3 minutes on each side, or until you get a nice, golden brown crust on the outside and the patties have cooked on the inside. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating. Top off with a dash of Parmesan cheese!
