Zucchini Fritter with Avocado Dill Dip
● 1 large zucchini or 2 small
● 1 clove of garlic peeled and minced
● ¼ Cup fresh basil; we grew our own, but you can find it at any grocery store
● ¼ cup fresh oregano. Ditto
● 1 tablespoon lemon zest
● 2 organic eggs or ‘Flax Egg’
● ¼ cup gluten free flour
● ¼ teaspoon Onion powder or to taste
● 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
● ¼ teaspoon of pepper or to taste
● Avocado dip base
● ½ cup finely chopped dill
Using the large holes of a box grater, grate zucchini. Place zucchini in a colander set in the sink and toss with 1/2 teaspoons salt. Let stand 10 minutes, and then wring zucchini dry in a clean kitchen towel to remove moisture. Place zucchini in a large bowl and gently mix in egg, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon zest, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine. Slowly add flour, stirring so no lumps form.
Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until the oil sizzles when you drop a small amount of zucchini mixture into the pan. Carefully drop about 2 tablespoons zucchini mixture into pan; repeat, spacing fritters a few inches apart.
Cook fritters until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium. Turn fritters, and continue cooking until golden, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer fritters to a plate; set aside in a warm place. Cook remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil to the pan if necessary.
If you want to mix up the ingredients, or simply add more vegetables, try adding 1/2 cup of chopped kale or spinach.
