Description

A Cozy Kitchen makes these beautiful zucchini fritters with goat cheese that are both crispy and creamy. Simply perfect.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Zucchini (about 2 Medium-sized), Coarsely Grated
  • 1 whole Whole Large Egg
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 whole Scallions, Finely Chopped
  • Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 3 ounces, fluid Goat Cheese
  • ½ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Sour Cream Or Plain Yogurt

Preparation

Coarsely grate the zucchini and then sprinkle with salt. Try to remove as much moisture from the zucchini as possible. I squeezed the zucchini with a clean dish towel, and then set it in a colander lined with paper towels for 10 minutes after that.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and then add the zucchini, flour, scallions, and some fresh cracked pepper. Crumble in the goat cheese, and mix well to combine.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the fritters in batches by spooning the mixture into the skillet in amounts measuring roughly 2 tablespoons. Flatten the mounds slightly with your spatula once they’re in the pan. Cook, turning once, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until they have become dark brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Serve immediately, with sour cream or plain yogurt on the side or spooned on top of it in a tasty, crispy, gooey mess.

I made this saturday, we loved them! I didn’t have goat cheese so I used Parmesan instead, but they turned out great. I love new ways to eat veggies!

I am currently eating this and NOMMMMING! It is so delicious. My fiance made it for us, while we forgot scallions we just used finely chopped onion. We were worried about getting enough moisture out of the zucchini but it came out great. It is so flavorful, a little sweet, salty and crunchy, plus creamy from the goat cheese I’d DEFINITELY make this again!

I highly recommend these tasty little darlings! The goat cheese is an absolute must! I would like to experiment with feta also. :) Thanks for a lovely side dish!
