Mini Zucchini Fritters

Recipe adapted from:


  • 3-4 regular sized zucchini, grated (you know, regular, 7-8 cm long, < 2cm wide)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • 2 chopped green onions
  • 2 large eggs
  • a dash or two of pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp-ish cayenne pepper (optional, amount varies depending on taste)
  • oil for frying
  • plain yogurt for serving


  • Grate the zucchini–just chop off the stem end and grate that thing!
  • Mix all ingredients except the oil and yogurt together until they’re well-combined.
  • Heat oil (maybe 2-3 Tbsp, just enough to cover the skillet, add more as needed) in a large skillet on medium heat.
  • Use a tablespoon to drop little rounded zucchini patties into the oil.
  • Fry on each side until golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve with yogurt on the side.
