Welcome to my first Meatless Monday post! This recipe came from Pinterest and I dreamed about it all the days leading up to when I actually made it.
It was AH-MA-ZING!
This awesome recipe also came with a great sauce. You must try it! This is such a great meal for those days you want to go meatless. I’m not big on fried foods, but once in awhile is a treat, and this meal almost makes up for the fact that it’s fried Serve with a salad.
Vegetable oil for frying
3 cups grated zucchini
1 cup diced onion
1 cup flour (I use 1/2 all-purpose, unbleached & 1/2 whole wheat mix)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
*Pour oil into skillet about 1/2 inch deep and turn heat to medium. While oil is heating up combine zucchini, onion, and eggs in a large bowl. Give the mixture a good stir.
In a smaller bowl combine flour and the remaining ingredients. Then add to zucchini and fold in until mixed well.
Drop batter by heaping tablespoons, frying about 6 fritters at a time. Cook on each side about 2-3 minutes, depending on how crispy and brown you want them. When the centers are firm, remove from oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
Chili Lime Aioli
1 cup prepared mayo
juice from half a lime (about 1-2 ounces)
1/2 tsp. chili powder (add to taste)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
*Simply combine the ingredients, stirring well. Refrigerate until slightly chilled to take the mayo taste out. Serve with fritters
Now I’m thinking of all kinds of fritters….Corn Fritters, Cheese and Broccoli Fritters, Apple Fritters, even a Coconut Chicken Fritter. The possibilities are truly endless. I hope you enjoy
