Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. There’s just so many ways to use this amazing ingredient. You can make zoodles, soup, salad or bread. You can even use this little amazing ingredient in your baking or smoothies. Actually, it’s one of my favorite “unknown” ingredients in smoothies. All the leftover zucchini goes into my freezer and that frozen zucchini gives always the best creamy texture for the smoothie. The other great way to use it is next to your main course or as a snack. All you need to do is crumb zucchini slices with almond meal and your crispy zucchini snack is ready.

Now finally I’m ready to share this little zucchini recipe.
about 6 fritters
Time: 15-20 minutes
Nutritional information (per one zucchini fritter): 78,9 kcal, Protein: 3,5 g, Net Carbs: 2,3 g, Fat: 6,2 g
- 300 g (10, 5 oz) zucchini
- 50 g (1,8 oz) almond meal (flour)
- 1 eggs
- 1 minced garlic
- 1 tsp coconut butter
- Seasoning: pink Himalayan salt, pepper, chili flakes (optional), dry (or fresh) basil, oregano or other seasonal herbs.
- Grate the zucchini and place it in a bigger strainer. Add about 1/4 tsp of salt and toss to combine. Let it sit about 7-10 minutes. Squeeze out the water with your hands or clean towel or cloth.
- Mix together zucchini, almond meal, and garlic. Add egg and season with extra salt, pepper, chili, and basil. Form little balls out of the mixture and flatten it with your hands (add extra almond flour when you can’t form the balls).
- Heat the coconut butter in a large non-stick pan (medium heat). Add the zucchini “patties”. Cook until it’s golden on both sides (about 2 minutes). The best thing you can do here is to wait until it stays together properly. It’s like making pancakes. Once you start to poke it, then it might fall apart. Just be patient.
- Serve with fresh salad leaves cashew cheese or pesto.
