Zucchini Fritters

Ingredients

  • 1 lb zucchini (about 2 medium)
  • 1 tsp plus ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup diced green onions or chives
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten with a fork
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Wash zucchini and trim ends. Grate zucchini, put in a large bowl and stir in 1 tsp salt. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. After 10 minutes, squeeze handfuls of zucchini over the sink to remove extra water.
  3. Add another ¼ tsp salt, or to taste. Next add green onion, egg, pepper and give it a stir.
  4. In a small bowl combine flour and baking powder, then stir into the zucchini mixture. Mix everything well.
  5. In a large heavy bottomed non-stick skillet, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over med-high heat. Using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop, add zucchini mixture to the skillet and gently flatten the tops with a spatula.
  6. Cook about 3-5 min per side on medium-high heat, adding oil as needed, until golden brown. If they brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium. Place on a paper towel for a few minutes to soak up some oil.
  7. Serve with sour cream or yogurt.
