Zucchini Fritters (pic)

I think it’s so cool how we can low carb our favorite foods and they come out really good. Zucchini fritters are another one of my favorite foods; I got my new box of Carbquik in and I just had to give it a try. I was very happy with the way the fritters came out. If I didn’t know that they were made with Carbquik instead of regular flour I really don’t think I would have known the difference.

Zucchini fritters and pork chops is one of my favorite meals.


Zucchini Fritters

2 zucchini squash
1 yellow squash
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 large egg
1/4-cup ground almonds
1/4-cup Carbquik
Salt and pepper

Grate the squash on a large hole grater; place it in a colander and salt it well and let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then squeeze as much water out of the grated squash as you can; place the dry squash in a bowl with the rest of the ingredient and mix well.

Form into patties and fry.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Good job, Cricket, those look really tasty!

We're about to plant our zucchini and yellow squash so when I have an overabundance I'll have to remember this recipe. DH will love it!

Look delicious. We have yellow squash and zuccini planted so this will be a definite addition to our summer menu. Thanks. I'll prob try using my food processor to grate the squash--whenever I grate by hand, I end up losing some skin. I'm a klutz.

Thanks everyone, I've really been enjoying getting to know this new way of eating. It is offering me many more choices and variety of food than I thought it would.

Do you peel the squash and zucchini first?
Thanks

No you don't peel them; just wash them and cut the ends off and grate them.

I had one pork chop and one fritter left over after supper. Yesterday morning I chopped the fritter into pieces and threw it into a pan with some butter to heat it up. While the fritter was heating I chopped the pork chop into bite size pieces and threw it in with the fritter pieces. I cooked them until they had browned a bit and served them next to my scrambled egg.

They were fantastic; they tasted like pork chops and hash browns. It’s got me to thinking that grated squash and a sliced green onion dusted with a little Carbquik, would make some really good hash browns. I’ll give it a try and report my findings.

Wow Cricket - that looks like one tasty meal - especially with the slaw! Adding this to my file for when the zucchinis are ready. Thanks.
