Zucchini Fritters

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4


  • 1 lb zucchini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp dried chives
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup 100% whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Sour Cream Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped


  • Grate zucchini using a cheese grater or spiralizer. Mix zucchini and salt in a bowl and set aside to sweat. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can using paper towels or cheese cloth. Mix zucchini, chives, egg, pepper, flour, and baking powder in a bowl.
  • Heat oil on griddle or large skillet. Scoop zucchini mixture by small scoops onto the hot oiled griddle or skillet, approximately 3 Tbsp at a time. Flatten slightly with the back of a spatula.
  • Cook 4 minutes, then flip and cook 4 minutes longer.
  • Top with sour cream sauce, if desired.
