These Easy Gluten-Free Vegan Zucchini Fritters are gluten-free, crisp on the outside, and soft and flavourful on the inside! All in under 25 minutes.
I love zucchinis, okay, I really do. They are watery, almost flavourless, but when prepared right, they can be super yummy and satisfactory. They perfect low calorie alternative to many things, like pasta for example.
Have you ever thought of zucchini fritters? I didn’t either, until last week. When you have too much of something leftover, you get creative.
These fritters are super heathy and comes together quick too. They perfect for any meal, side dish, or for a main dish with some plant based protein added to it. Oh, also work as a snack too. They are perfectly dipped in some sauce.
The most important step in making these vegan zucchini fritters, is to drain off all the excess water from the grated zucchinis. That is what will make or break your recipe. So squeeze that stuff out.
Anyway! I hope you enjoy this recipe.
