5-Ingredient Zucchini Fritters
These zucchini fritters are crispy, crunchy, inexplicably light and perfect for dipping. You'd never guess they're good for you, too.
- 4 cups shredded zucchini about 2 large
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup sliced scallions, chives or a mixture of the two
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Sour cream for serving optional
Put the shredded zucchini in a colander set over a bowl and sprinkle lightly with salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Then, use your hands to squeeze out as much liquid from the zucchini as possible. Move the zucchini to a large bowl.
Add the flour, eggs, sliced scallions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to the bowl, stirring until the mixture is combined.
Add the oil to a large saute pan over medium heat. Once hot, scoop 3-tbsp mounds of the mixture into the pan at least two inches apart. Press them lightly into circles. Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook 2 minutes more until golden brown. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and immediately sprinkle with salt.
Repeat the process with the remaining mixture.
Serve with sour cream if you'd like.
