Zucchini fritters

As I’ve mentioned before I think Meat Free Mondays is a great concept. These Zucchini fritters are super tasty, pretty easy to make and absolutely meat free. Works perfectly for a monday or actually any day of the week.


Zucchini fitters with lemon yoghurt dressing


What you need:

500g Zucchini

2 scallions, split lengthwise and thinly sliced

2 eggs, lightly beaten

½ cup all-purpose flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 cup greek yogurt

1 lemon, the juice


Olive oil

Salt and pepper

How to:

  1. Trim ends of the zucchinis and grate them or slice on a julienne slicer.  Place in a colander and mix with coarse salt. Set a side for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the yogurt dressing by mixing the yogurt with lemon juice,  season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Now wring out the zucchinis, by either pressing it against the holes of the colander to extract the water or wrapping them up in a clean dishtowel and squeezing out the excess liquid.
  4. Mix the zucchini with the finely chopped scallion and beaten egg.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder, then mix with the zucchini mixture and season with freshly ground pepper and if needed some extra salt.
  6. Toss the rocket with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Heat the oil in a frying pan and ladle spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer cooked fritters to a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  8. Serve with the yogurt dressing and the rocket.

    Stunning, it’s amazing how you’ve brought out the vibrant green of both the zucchini and the rocket in your shot. If meat free Monday always looked like this, life would be a lot healthier and happier for all 🙂

    I have to try these! Some one once give me a recipe that was made with zucchini and was suppose to taste like crab cakes. I now need to see if I can find that one again! Thanks for sharing a great idea!

    Will you help us Save our History?

      Yeah, try them, not sure if I think they taste like crab cakes though. 🙂
