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, inspiralizedali (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!

Now you can watch a cooking video of this recipe:

Congratulations !! God bless you during this important time before the baby comes!!
Angie says:
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?
Katie says:
I think once you spiralize the zucchini, then you cut the noodles into 1 inches pieces.
Philip says:
If it says "blade D", it's implied
Meaghan says:
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!

Never mind making this dish. Just go out to dinner.
Anonymous says:
Could you also bake these in a muffin pan instead of frying? anyone tried that yet?
Ali Maffucci says:
You could, but they might not be as firm!
Carol says:
Any reason why I can't substitute coconut flour for the almond flour?
Ali Maffucci says:
Just flavor! Use what you like!
Deb says:
FYI. I used coconut flour - they were extremely dry. Wanted to enjoy them but couldn't ?
Shannon says:
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.
Laurie says:
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."
Janis A DeSanti says:
Is it 11 points for just 2 fritters
Lynne says:
Can you use use all purpose white flour...and get similar results?
Stefanie says:
I tried it both ways and for me all purpose had MUCH better results.
Anna says:
These were a waste of my perfectly good almond flour. Not good.
Shannon says:
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!

Where could I get almond flour
Roxanne says:
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!
Stefanie A Honeycutt says:
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!
Linda Easton says:
What is the serving size and WW points Thanks
Lyn says:
Flour is high in points.we are following an old weight watchers program..1 cup of flour would be 12 points.
Meaghan says:
You can find this at the bottom of the post!
Dena says:
I appreciate leaving out the white flour and aiming for healthier almond flour. However, I'm allergic to almonds. Any suggestions for another modification?
Kathleen says:
I tried this recipe as written and the fritters completely fell apart. I decided to try baking the rest of the batch and had much better success. I baked on parchment paper at 400 for 15 mins then flipped and continued baking for another 15 minutes. Much better results!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
