Quick and Crispy Vegetable Fritters



QUICK and CRISPY VEGETABLE FRITTERS






These crispy vegetable fritters are filled with broccoli, carrots and zucchini. Dip each delicious appetizer donut in the creamy avocado yogurt sauce.

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup sliced scallions (green and white parts)
  • Sour cream or yogurt, for serving
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


Instructions:
  1. Place the shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle it lightly with salt. Let the zucchini sit for 10 minutes then using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Transfer the zucchini to a large bowl then add the carrots, garlic, flour, eggs, scallions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir the mixture until it is combined.
  3. Line a plate with paper towels. Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of the vegetable mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly and spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
  4. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes then flip them once and continue cooking them an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and crispy. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate, season them with salt and repeat the cooking process with the remaining mixture.
  5. Serve the fritters immediately topped with sour cream or yogurt. Enjoy your healthy food!
