Zucchini Fritters {Vegan}

Day 228.

I love zucchini. And, let's be honest, fried things are just yummy (in moderation, of course). I love fried okra and vegetable tempura. This promises to be tasty.

Zucchini Fritters
Adapted from Zucchini Fritters.
Ingredients
  • 6 zucchinis (about 7 cups), shredded
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 portions egg substitue
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella (vegan, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon powdered vegetable bouillon
  • House seasoning, to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 cloves of garlic, halved
Directions
In a large bowl place the shredded zucchini, flour, "eggs," cheese, bouillon and House seasoning. Mix together well.

Heat a large frying pan with about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil and the garlic. Using a teaspoon carefully place the zucchini mixture in the oil. When one side is golden, carefully turn over the fritter, turning only once.

Place the fritters on a platter lined with a paper towel.

Results
Wow. These are incredible. The veggie bouillon flavor and the crispy fried zucchini are absolutely fantastic. This is a definite repeat. I thought, "hm, that sounds like it could be pretty good." But, no, it's not just pretty good, it's fantastic. I absolutely love this.

  2. Agreed, fried things are yummy. Zucchini fritters are one of my favorite things to make in the summer. Zucchini is always one veggie that grows the best in my garden.
