Ingredients

Original version

  • 1/2 head cauliflower approximately 3 cups, chopped
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Egg-Free version

  • 1/2 head cauliflower approximately 3 cups, chopped
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose or gluten-free flour 1/
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Grate the zucchini in a food processor.
  • Steam the cauliflower for about 5 minutes until just fork tender. Add the cauliflower to the food processor and process until broken down into small chunks. Do not over process or it will become a mash.
  • Use a dishtowel or nut milk bag to squeeze as much moisture as possible out of the grated veggies. 
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the flour of choice, egg (if using), salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you like. Mix to thoroughly combine. Shape into small patties (I got about 8).
  • Heat up 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan. Add 4 fritters to the pan and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat with the second half of the fritters. Serve with dipping sauce of choice.

Notes

Fritters can be refrigerated and are freezer friendly.
