Vegan Zucchini Fritters
In the spirit of getting more greens in, we thought we would share a delicious recipe to a veggie-inspired, meat-free dinner.
Yet again Happy Health Blog made us drool with her delicious dinner recipe, and these fritters are a must try! Easy to make, all vegan and a clever way to sneak in some more veggies.
Note: To avoid soggy fritters you will need a cheesecloth/nut-milk bag or thin kitchen towel in a colander over your kitchen sink.
4 cups grated zucchini + 1 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves
1 handful parsley
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp. chia flour (or flax meal) + 6 tbsp. water
1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. psyllium husk
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. olive oil
Vegan citrus yogurt:
1 cup vegan yogurt
Zest from 1 lemon
1/2 garlic clove
Salt & pepper
Grate 2 big zucchinis (or enough to fill 4 cups). Add the grated zucchini to a cheesecloth/nut-milk bag or thin kitchen towel in a colander over your kitchen sink. Sprinkle with the 1 teaspoon of salt and leave to drain for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, squeeze as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible. This is a crucial step for your fritters to become firm and not soggy!
Prepare the chia eggs by mixing the chia flour and the water in a separate small bowl and leave for 3-5 minutes. Add the drained zucchini and the chia eggs to a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients until combined.
Form fritters and slightly flatten them on a baking sheet with your fingers until you get about 9 of them. Make sure to use some oil or baking paper under the fritters. Brush the fritters whit some olive oil and bake in the oven on 200°C for 15-17 minutes. Serve with the vegan citrus yogurt. Enjoy!
