Yum Alert: Zucchini Fritters

One of my favorite things about my family dinners (other than the copious amounts of alcohol because that’s how my Russian family rolls) is my dedda’s (translation: grampa’s) zucchini fritters. I could eat a whole plate full with a side of Korean Carrot Salad. Image and recipe via The Healthy Foodie.


450g Courgettes, grated
30g Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 eggs, beaten
4 tbsp Whole Wheat Flour
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pinch Chili Flakes


Squeeze the courgettes in a dish towel to remove excess water, then combine with the Parmesan, eggs, flour, salt and pepper and chilli flakes. Heat a splash of olive oil in a frying pan and add 2 tablespoons of the mixture for each fritter. Cook three fritters at a time for 2 – 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown, then keep warm while you cook the remaining fritters. Serve warm with a nice green salad
