Despite the lack of rain in these parts this summer, the zucchini plant has been producing some nice zucchini. I took the opportunity to make some zucchini fritters while they are in season. They are delicious with honey flavoured Greek yogurt.
1 large zucchini (or 2 medium)
1 large egg
2/3 cup Quinoa Flour
2 green onions
Salt and pepper
Grape seed oil
Grate the zucchini, salt and let stand in a sieve to remove the liquid. Drain all liquid. Beat egg and add to zucchini, chopped green onions, along with quinoa flour. Season with freshly ground pepper.
Heat grape seed oil, and over medium heat cook zucchini fritters. Size the fritters about 2 tablespoons and flatten them once in the frying pan. Cook for about 4 minutes, tip the frying pan with one hand and using a spatula flip the fritter to avoid splashing any oil.
Cook another 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels, season with salt if you like.
