Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

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!

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

directions⁣
heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
