ZUCCHINI AND VEGGIE FRITTERS

Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 3 small zucchinis shredded)
  • 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Plain greek yogurt

Directions

1.) Prepare your zucchini by shredding it, then place it in a fine mesh sieve over a bowl.  Sprinkle it with some sea salt and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.  After it has sat for that time, press down on the zucchini squeezing out as much moisture as possible.

2.) In a medium mixing bowl, add the eggs and whisk until smooth.  Add the zucchini, bell pepper, onion, flour, thyme, paprika, and sea salt.  Stir to combine completely.

3.) In a large frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil over medium heat.  Add three large spoonfuls of the mixture to the pan (the mixture should make about 8 fritters total), and flatten with a spatula.  Allow the fritter to cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then use the spatula to flip the fritter to the other side and allow it to cook for another 2-3 minutes on that side.  Transfer to a plate.  Repeat this process, for the rest of the mixture, until you’ve made all your fritters.

4.) Transfer your fritters to a plate and top with a dollop of plain greek yogurt, if desired.
