Farmers Market Fritters

By Micki Brown
Serves 4



1 medium zucchini, grated

1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

1 large carrot, washed and grated

2 green onions, chopped

2 eggs

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp garlic powder

Sea salt and black pepper to taste

1/3 cup virgin coconut oil

Sour cream or plain yogurt


Combine all of the ingredients, except the coconut oil and sour cream/yogurt, in a mixing bowl.

Place the coconut oil in a large skillet and heat until hot, but not smoking. Make 4 patties from the zucchini mixture and place in the hot oil, and flatten slightly with a spatula. Pan fry the fritters until they are cooked through and a dark golden brown on both sides.

Drain on a paper towel, then transfer to a serving dish. Add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt on each fritter. Serve.
