Monday R20 Meal

Monday R20 Meal is: Zucchini Fritters!

This is week two of my Monday R20 Meal series and this week I deiced to try a recipe that I have been looking on Pinterest so I made Zucchini Fritters. In South Africa, you could call them Baby Marrow Fritters but I’m not really a fan of baby marrow so calling them Zucchini sounds better to me!

I got the original recipe from here but I changed it slightly:

  • 2 cups of grated zucchini (about 500g with ends off)
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • to taste salt and pepper
  • 1 lg egg
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour (I used gluten free flour)
  • cooking oil or coconut oil for cooking

How to:

  1. Wash the zucchini and cut the ends off. Using the large holes on a cheese grater, grate the zucchini or slice it by hand and put it in bowl .
  2. Combine the garlic, mixed herbs, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix it  together. Taste the zucchini and adjust the salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Whisk an egg and add it to the zucchini along with ¾ cups of flour. Stir until everything is evenly combined. The texture should be similar to cake batter.
  4. Heat the oil or coconut oil until it is warm, test to see if it is warm enough by dropping a drop of batter into the pan. If it smokes, reduce the heat immediately.
  5. Take a spoon and spoon balls of the batter into the pan. When they become golden brown, they are ready to be turned over. Repeat on the other side.
  6. Serve warm!
