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!
Anonymous says:
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!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
