Ingredients

  • tbsp breadcrumbs 
  •  eggs beaten
  • 0.5 cup flour 
  • tsp garlic powder 
  •  juice of lemon juiced
  • tbsp olive oil for pan frying
  • tsp onion powder 
  • tbsp parmesan cheese grated
  • 0.5 cup parsley chopped
  • tsp pepper 
  • servings greek yogurt plain
  • 16 oz zucchini trimmed

Equipment

  • food processor
  • bowl
  • frying pan
  • baking sheet
  • paper towels

Directions

  1. Chop the zucchini into small pieces.
  2. Place in food processor and pulse until there are small bits left. (If you have a grating attachment on your food processor you can use that instead).In a medium bowl add zucchini, lemon juice, parsley, flour, eggs, spices, Parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix together until evenly distributed.
  4. Place olive oil in a large frying pan and heat over medium high heat. Working in batches, add a little less than a cup of batter to the frying pan for each fritter. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 45 seconds. Flip over and cook until golden brown on the other side.
  5. Place a few layers of paper towel on a baking sheet or plate. Once fritters are done, transfer to the lined baking sheet or dish and let the paper towel soak up extra oil.
  6. Garnish with more lemon juice and a dollop of Greek yogurt before serving.
