Zucchini Fritters

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.

Zucchini Fritters

Vegetable oil for frying

3 cups grated zucchini

1 cup diced onion

2 eggs

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  🙂
