Quick and Crispy Vegetable Fritters


The setup on this one is extra-simple: Shred zucchini and carrots then toss them together with eggs, garlic, scallions and a touch of flour. Scoop the mixture into a hot pan and wait for the crackling to cue you to flip ’em. The result is crispy vegetable fritters perfect for pairing with a dollop of tangy sour cream or refreshing yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 2 cupsshredded zucchini
  • 2 cupsshredded carrots
  • 2cloves garlic, minced
  • 2/3 cupall-purpose flour
  • 2large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cupsliced scallions (green and white parts)
  • 2 Tablespoonsolive oil
  • Sour cream or yogurt, for serving

Steps

  1. Place the shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle it lightly with salt. Let the zucchini sit for 10 minutes then using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Transfer the zucchini to a large bowl then add the carrots, garlic, flour, eggs, scallions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir the mixture until it is combined.
  3. Line a plate with paper towels. Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of the vegetable mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly and spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
  4. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes then flip them once and continue cooking them an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and crispy. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate, season them with salt and repeat the cooking process with the remaining mixture.
  5. Serve the fritters immediately topped with sour cream or yogurt.
Enjoy!!
