Zucchini Fritters

There are a few foods which never escape my shopping basket. Eggs and zucchini are two of these. So versatile, nutritious and FODMAP friendly, eggs and zucchini in some form or another always make their way into my breakfast, lunch, dinner or sweets. 

Zucchini fritters are just another quick and easy dish I like to whip up using both of these ingredients. And speaking of versatility, here are my favourite ways to eat zucchini fritters…

For breakfast or lunch, top your fritters with fresh rocket, a few halved cherry tomatoes, and a quarter avocado. And for something more substantial, add some smoked salmon or fried haloumi to your plate.

With a hearty meal like curry or stew, skip the rice or grains and enjoy with a zucchini fritter or two (no rhyme intended!)

Or for a quick snack, simply enjoy them on their own or with a dollop of your yoghurt of choice. Yum!

I’m always looking for new ideas, so leave me a comment with your favourite way to eat zucchini fritters. Or maybe you have a different favourite fritter....?

Makes 6 large fritters, serves 2-3

1 medium zucchini, grated
2 tbsp parmesan, grated

Place prepared ingredients in a medium sized bowl, and mix together. Heat a small spoonful of coconut oil in a fry pan on medium-high heat. Spoon mixture into the fry pan, and cook each side of the fritters until browned. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt of choice and a handful of fresh rocket.

Enjoy!

  1. These look and sound delicious - thank you! However, are almond meal and coconut flour FODMAP friendly? I thought perhaps no?

    1. Thanks :) I hope you enjoy them. A quarter of a cup of almond meal is actually low FODMAP, yay. But you are right about coconut flour, sorry I forgot to add a note as I can tolerate it in small amounts, you may substitute half a cup of brown rice flour which works just as well!

  4. Zucchini (or potato) fritters are a great alternative to toast at breakfast - eggs benedict, poached eggs and bacon...

    I too thought coconut and almond flour a bit problematic so I usually use rice and sometimes spelt but I'm going to give this a go

    1. Yum! That sounds great Lisa.
      You are right about the coconut flour, my bad, I forgot about that one as I can tolerate it in small amounts! I've just added a note to say to substitute with half a cup of brown rice flour which works great :) a quarter of a cup almond meal is low FODMAP.
      I hope yo enjoy them!
