I was really struggling to come up with ways to use zucchini other then fried zucchini (which I adore but who doesn't) I needed to not make this amazing green veggie so unhealthy but also something that non vegans will love. My solution is fritters.
These zucchini fritters make the perfect appetizer, and also work great for lunch or dinner (especially when paired with a salad!).
1 large zucchini, grated
½ tsp salt
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup GF all purpose flour
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
Sprinkle some salt over your grated zucchini, allow to sit for about an hour to remove some water.
Put the zucchini in a large, clean dish towel, and squeeze out any excess water. Put zucchini in a large bowl.
Add in the minced garlic, flour, coriander, onion powder, and black pepper. Mix well.
Form into balls and press gently to flatten.
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook until golden (about 5 minutes), then flip and cook for another few minutes, or until that side has also browned lightly.
Serve, with a dollop of vegan sour cream on top (or on the side).
What's you favorite way to use zucchini? I'm always looking for new ideas.
