Spiralized Zucchini Fritters

Spiralized Zucchini Fritters

Before I get into today’s recipe, I want to thank you all one last time for all your kind, sweet, loving messages after my big announcement.

Lu and I are so thrilled to be pregnant, and we were overwhelmed by all the outpouring of love we felt from all of you. I know this is a food blog and many of you come here for the recipes, so I was so humbled by all the amazing support.

For the future, all of my pregnancy updates along this beautiful journey that’s just beginning will be posted on my personal lifestyle blog, alissandrab (I already did a first trimester recap!)

Spiralized Zucchini Fritters

This blog will continue as normal! More spiralized inspiration for you!

These zucchini fritters are so easy to make and have so much flavor. I actually made them last year and they were sent exclusively to those of you who ordered by second cookbook, Inspiralize Everything. So, if you’re seeing these for the second time, I apologize (but thanks for your support!)

Zucchini fritters are typically made with grated zucchini, but who the heck has the time to grate zucchini?! Zucchini noodles are much easier to make and make for a better consistency!

Spiralized Zucchini Fritters

You can serve these with lox and some yogurt, top them with a dollop of avocado mash, or just serve them simply with a side salad.

Today I’m in the kitchen all day filming some brand new cooking videos for all of you! Hope these zucchini fritters make your upcoming meal plans!

Ingredients

  • For the fritters:
  • 1 medium zucchini, Blade D
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • ½ tbsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • For the salad:
  • 4 packed cups of mixed greens or arugula
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Place the spiralized zucchini on a cutting board and chop them with a knife into 1” pieces.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onion, almond flour, chives, parsley, garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add about ¼ cup of the mixture, 4 times. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until set and browned. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining mixture and olive oil, until about 8 fritters are made.

  5. Divide 2 fritters per plate with a heap of side salad.

  1. Congratulations !! God bless you during this important time before the baby comes!!
  2. I'm confused. Very new at this. Wouldn't using one inch cubes of zucchini be too big to make fritters? No mention of spiralizing them?
    • I think once you spiralize the zucchini, then you cut the noodles into 1 inches pieces.
    • If it says "blade D", it's implied
    • Welcome! Whenever we write recipes, we include in the ingredient list the letter of the blade you'll need to use when spiralizing that vegetable. Just be sure to always check the ingredient list to see what blade we suggest spiralizing with!
  3. Could you also bake these in a muffin pan instead of frying? anyone tried that yet?
  4. Any reason why I can't substitute coconut flour for the almond flour?
    • Just flavor! Use what you like!
    • FYI. I used coconut flour - they were extremely dry. Wanted to enjoy them but couldn't 😔
      • Coconut flour and almond flour have VERY different properties. It's easy to google, but basically coconut flour you'll want to use significantly less than the measurement given for almond flour. Coconut flour absorbs moisture way more than almond flour, so to substitute you'll want to use way less.
  5. Just a suggestion - the recipe would be less confusing if in step 1 you said, "Place the zucchini noodles on a cutting board and chop them with a knife into 1” pieces."
  6. Janis A DeSanti :
    Is it 11 points for just 2 fritters
  7. Can you use use all purpose white flour...and get similar results?
  8. These were a waste of my perfectly good almond flour. Not good.
  9. These fritters were crazy delicious! What a treat - I almost ate the entire plate, but managed to save some for tomorrow's breakfast. Can't believe how well they turned out, especially since my last attempt with another recipe didn't work at all. Thanks so much; I know I'll be referring back to this recipe often!
  10. Where could I get almond flour
    • You'll find almond flour at the health food store, Whole Foods Market and similar stores. I have made my own by processing whole almonds(raw) in my cuisinart until it's a fine flour-like quality. Easy-peasy! Ali, Thank you so for all your wonderful recipes and your thoughtful posts. Congratulations to you both!
  11. Stefanie A Honeycutt :
    Made these the first time with white flour and they were amazing! 2nd time I made with almond flour and they did not hold together at all. I only cooked half and then threw the whole thing out. I will make them again but with all purpose flour. If you don't have good results with almond flour don't give up. Try all purpose of it fits your diet. It's like a zucchini tater tot!
