I’ll be the first to admit, I have a hard time eating my veggies. As such, it’s hard to force my boys to eat them since I don’t either. That’s where I rely on recipes like these vegetables fritters. They are a tasty way to sneak in a lot of vegetables and I can even trick myself into eating these! I made them with zucchini and carrots, but you could add in any other similar vegetables. I may try some squash next time we make them. Let me know if you add any other vegetables in and how they come out!
- 2 cups zucchini shredded
- 2 cups carrots shredded
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2/3 cup flour
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1/3 cup scallions chopped
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Sour cream
Place the shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Squeeze zucchini to release as much liquid as possible.
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, carrots, garlic, eggs, and scallions. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable mixture and form into patties and place on a plate.
Continue with the rest of the mixture until all patties are formed.
Place patties in oil and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Once finished, transfer to a cooling rack and season with salt and pepper as desired.
Serve immediately with sour cream to dip.
