Zucchini fritters

For all you zucchini growers out there, here's my recipe for Zucchini Fritters!  I just cooked up a batch this morning. You can freeze them for later use. The following quantity produces around 4 medium size fritters - increase basic components if you want to make more. I made 16 by tripling the flour and eggs and adding more filling.



1/3 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
3 cups grated zucchini
½ cup of grated carrot
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Crushed and chopped garlic clove (optional)


Mix flour, baking powder, salt, pepper & eggs into a smooth batter.
Add zucchini, onion carrot, garlic and parsley and mix gently.
Very lightly spray skillet with olive oil and heat to medium hot.
Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto skillet.
Fry until golden, turn, and cook second side until done.

You can add other fillings, e.g. chopped green shallot onions, chopped bacon pieces, etc.
