Zucchini Fritters

It’s always good to find new ways for cooking seasonal vegetables especially when you have kids. This way of preparing zucchini can be a great healthy way for making kids enjoy vegetables during the summer. The recipe is very easy and takes only few minutes to prepare.

 

The most important part in this recipe is to squeeze as much liquid as possible from the grated zucchini otherwise the fritters won’t get as crispy and delightful.

 

Zucchini fritters taste very good, the parsley and dill bring such a nice summery flavor. I also loved the Parmesan cheese inside, makes a great combination with zucchini. They are best served warm alongside some garlic sour cream and can make a great lunch or appetizer. You can also use these fritters for making vegetarian burgers alongside fresh vegetables and crusty buns. They are really delicious.
