Zucchini Fritters with carrot, dill and a dollop of greek yogurt.
I’ve got new obsession lately… zucchini fritters. I can eat them all the time. I just really like them. They are very delicious I can honestly say. I like the addition of greek yogurt on top, but sour cream would be perfect too.
I’m not a huge fan of zucchini and I wasn’t before either. But now after many interesting recipes like Cinnamon Zucchini Bread and these zucchini fritters—> zucchini is my favorite! It’s the way how you prepare the food this is what matters. This vegetable wasn’t at my home often. But now it’s all the time. Not only one zucchini, I’m buying at least three for the week. Which reminds me that I have to buy because I already ate all of them.
These fritters are baked not fried. To prevent any excess oil dripping from them:) And any excess calories. They are healthy and full of vegetables. Also, I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. Dill adds so much flavor to these zucchini fritters. And if you have fresh garlic on hand just use it instead of a garlic powder. Either way is fine.
I’ve made Parmesan Cauliflower Fritters before and they were totally tasty too. I think I have some exciting recipes on hand. I can also use them for my everyday cooking and the food shouldn’t be boring.
