CORN AND ZUCCHINI FRITTERS
INGREDIENTS
500g zucchini, shredded and drained*
1/2 cup grated onion
1 cup fresh organic sweet corn
1 large egg
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour/GF if needed
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried basil
Olive oil or ghee, for cooking

 

 

 INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, onion, corn, egg, and cheese.
  2. Then stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, and basil.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, spoon the zucchini mixture by a tablespoon. (I used a regular eating tablespoon to measure out the mixture).
  4. Flatten the tops with a spatula and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  6. Serve warm fritters as is or with sour cream.
These are also delicious topped with a thin slice of tomato and fresh herbs of your choice

 

NOTES::
Make sure to squeeze out as much of excess moisture from the zucchini before mixing in with the rest of the ingredients. I did this by using my hands. You can also use couple layers of paper towels, cheese cloth, or a dish towel.
