Simple Veggie Fritters (on a Simple Budget)
Serves: 12 patties
  • 2 small zucchini
  • 2 medium-sized carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 cup grated cheese (we like Colby jack or cheddar best for these but any variety will work)
  • 1 cup flour (we use freshly ground hard white wheat for these but you can use your favorite!)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying (I recommend palm shortening or refined coconut oil as they are flavorless and remain stable at high temperatures.)
  1. Grate the zucchini and carrots into a bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Heat about 3 Tablespoons of oil in a skillet.
  4. Scoop veggie mixture into hot oil, pressing down to make patties.
  5. Fry until each side is golden brown, about 2 minutes each.
