For the Zucchini Fritters:

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 white onion
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • neutral oil (evoo, vegetable, avocado)

For the Herb Yogurt Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 large lemon, juice & zest
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Optional: add any finely chopped fresh herbs that you may have on hand, such as chives or parsley


  • Either grate the zucchini, carrots and onion by hand, or use the food processor attachment. Line a colander with a thin dish towel and add the grated veggies on top. Toss with 1/2 tsp salt and let sit for 10 mins. Then, bundle the towel and squeeze as much excess liquid out of the grated veggies as possible. Add to a large bowl.
  • To the bowl, add the rest of the zucchini fritter ingredients except the oil and mix well.
  • Heat a large cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat for 5 mins. Add 1/2 inch of oil and allow to heat for another minute or until a drop of water sizzles.
  • Scoop out 1/4 cup of the zucchini fritter batter and add to the skillet, using a fork or spatula to flatten. Repeat but don't overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and fry for another 3 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt herb dipping sauce ingredients.
