Healthy & Quick Veggie Fritters 

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

  3. Stir the mixture until it is combined. Line a plate with paper towels. Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and liberally coat the bottom with vegetable oil.

  4. 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. 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.

  5. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate, season them with salt and repeat the cooking process with the remaining mixture. Serve the fritters immediately topped with sour cream or yogurt.
