Ingredients:

  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 egg
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Prep the Zucchini:
    • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the grated zucchini on a layer of paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then transfer to a strainer. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Mix the Ingredients:
    • Transfer the drained zucchini to a bowl and add the chopped onion, whole wheat flour, baking powder, milk, egg, and fresh ground pepper. Stir until just combined, ensuring all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Bake the Fritters:
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a couple of inches of space between each fritter. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the fritters and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until both sides are golden brown.
  4. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once cooked, remove the fritters from the oven and serve them hot. Optionally, pair them with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt for added creaminess and flavor.

Additional Tips:

  • Enhance Crispiness: For extra crispy fritters, consider spraying or brushing each fritter with a little olive oil just before flipping them for the first time. This simple step can elevate the texture and taste of your fritters.
  • Customization: Feel free to customize this recipe by adding your favorite herbs, spices, or grated cheese to the fritter mixture. Experiment with different flavor combinations to suit your palate and preferences.
  • Storage: Store any leftover fritters in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Simply reheat them in the oven or microwave before serving to enjoy their deliciousness once again.
