Fritters are an easy and healthy way to pack the veggies in with minimal prep and maximum flavor! I love fritters, because they can be enjoyed as a side dish, an appetizer, or the main event, with a side protein or salad. By mixing together different vegetables, you get so much flavor, color, and nutrients!

These fritters were inspired by Natalie Coughlin’s Cook to Thrive cookbook. It landed on my desk, I flipped through it, and I immediately knew I needed to make these! I had never made a fritter with tapioca flour, and I’m so happy with the way they turned out – they are a little bit crispy and bind together really well with the tapioca. It’s also pretty amazing that she’s a 12-time Olympic medalist and world champion swimmer! Uhm… goals!

Fritters are great on their own, but if you are a dipper and like to dunk your fritters in something tasty, a simple ketchup, aioli, or even some spicy dijon would work wonders here. In the recipe, Coughling recommends using some goat cheese for a garnish, also.

Just a simple topping of some lightly chopped basil and you have a recipe ready for the spring or summer table!

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! 🖥️⁣
