Recipe: Zucchini Fritters

If you don’t mind shredding the zucchini this recipe is such a breeze. It makes a great appetizer, finger food for parties, or even a main course if you serve it with a couple of sides (it’d be really nice with a side of soup on a cold day). While it’s important to get most of the moisture out of the zucchini because I was baking them instead of frying I didn’t really spend too much extra effort of this and they turned out fine – they did need a little bit extra baking time but you can easily adjust for this. They’re like potato pancakes in a way, very light and fluffy!
