Here’s what you do with all that summer squash! Make zucchini fritters with this easy recipe and watch them ask for vegetable seconds!


  • 2 medium zucchini, grated (see note)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup regular or almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus extra for sprinkling
  • Vegetable oil for greasing the pan


  1. Heat skillet or electric griddle to medium high. Grease with vegetable oil if pan is not non-stick.
  2. Mix grated zucchini, egg, flour and salt together until well mixed. Scoop out fritter mixture in 1/4 cup amounts and add to skillet or griddle.
  3. Flatten gently into pancake shape and cook until golden brown on one side. Gently flip and cook until golden on the other side.
  4. Remove and sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy!


If your zucchini seems especially watery after you grate it, you can wring it out in a clean dishtowel before mixing it with the other ingredients.
