  • 2  large zucchinis grated
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  large egg
  • ½  cup all purpose flour
  • ½  cup  grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼  teaspoon  onion powder
  • ¼  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • ¼  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  avocado oil

Labneh Dip

  • 1/4  cup  labneh
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped cilantro
  • 1  tablespoon  lime juice
  • 1/4  teaspoon  garlic powder
  1. Place the grated zucchini into a kitchen towel, sprinkle salt on top and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Squeeze all excess liquid and discard the liquid. It should come out to about 1 heaping cup packed after the liquid is squeezed out.

  2. Transfer the zucchini into a medium bowl. Add the egg, flour, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper and mix until well combined and mixture sticks together.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the avocado oil, then scoop 2-3 tablespoons for the mixture on to the heated plan and flatten with a spatula. Cook until golden on the bottom, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side, about 2 more minutes.

  4. Serve warm with the labneh dip, sour cream or greek yogurt.

Freezing Instructions: You can also freeze the fritters before or after cooking them.

  • To freeze them prior to cooking, lay them on a flat baking dish in the freezer for at least 4 hours. When frozen, place them in an airtight bag. Thaw in the fridge overnight and cook per instructions.
  • To freeze them after cooking, simply store them in an airtight bag after they’ve cooled. To reheat, thaw in the fridge overnight and bake in a 350°F oven until heated through.

Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.

  • Instead of eggs, you can use flax eggs. For each regular egg, use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water.
  • Use 1:1 GF flour to make them gluten-free
