Zucchini Fritters

Number of Servings: 6


    1 cup Zucchini, shredded (about 2 medium zucchini)
    1/4 cup Carrots, shredded
    3 tbs. White Onion, grated
    1 tsp. Garlic, minced
    1 tsp. Oregano
    0.25 tsp. coarsely grounded Black Pepper
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    1/3 cup Bread Crumbs
    1 tbsp Olive oil
    Spray tahini sauce, optional (not included in nutritional information)


Stir zucchini, carrots, onion, garlic, oregano, and pepper until well combined. Stir in egg and let sit, refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes. If pools of liquid form in the bowl strain the zucchini mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Return to the bowl and stir in enough of the bread crumbs so the mixture can be easily mounded in a tablespoon. It should be thick enough to scoop, but still soft.

Lightly spray the bottom of a nonstick skillet with olive oil and heat until water drops dance and sizzle when sprinkled. Add batter by rounded tablespoons and flatten slightly. Cook until lightly browned on both sides, spraying the pan with additional oil as needed. Take care when turning the fritters as they are quite delicate. Repeat with remaining batter.

Optional: Serve hot with tahini sauce.
