Corn. Green beans. Broccoli. Potatoes. I feel like we do the same veggie sides all the time. Mostly because those are the few we like and are easy.
But I recently saw this pin from Just a Taste for 5 ingredient zucchini fritters. I’ve recently developed a liking for zucchini, although I’m the only one in the family to do so.
After a small eye roll from the hubby I started grating my zucchini while he cooked us up some steaks. Click here for the instructions by Just a Taste, keep reading for mine.
What you’ll need:
4 cups shredded zucchini
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2 large eggs slightly beaten
1/3 cup scallions
Sour cream (optional)
Grate your zucchini, and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Lightly salt it and add it to a bowl. Just a Taste suggests putting it in a colander and letting it sit for 10 minutes also.
Then add your flour, eggs, scallions, salt and pepper. Mix. Mix. Mix.
Line a plate with paper towels to set your fritters on. Coat the bottom of a pan with oil and heat over a medium-high heat.
When hot, scoop your zucchini mixture(about 3 tablespoons each) into the hot oil. Cook for about 3 minutes each side or until golden brown.
Place on the plate and sprinkle with salt. Continue the steps until you’ve used all the mix.
To be honest, I forgot to buy scallions so they aren’t added to mine. Let me say, I think these would have been excellent with them. While my eye rolling husband loved them anyway, I thought they needed a bit more (thus the scallions). Maybe a spicy aioli? But not bad for a first attempt. This may not be in full rotation yet, but it’s definitely something I’m going to work on.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. How would you change it?
