Sneaking in More Veggies with Zucchini Fritters

Getting more veggies on my family members’ plates with these delicious (and easy-to-make!) zucchini fritters.

If you want to get more veggies on your family members' plates, then try out these delicious zucchini fritters.

Wanna hear something about our little family, guys? Both my husband and kiddo despise vegetables. Joe and Leo seem to be very similar for many things. Aside from the sheer fact that they look exactly alike, they seem to have the same palette as well.

Of course, as a new mama, I know the importance of a well-balanced meal. So I will openly admit: they don’t get away with the non-veggie stance with me.

But I try to make it fun… with variety – I try.

Making vegetable fritters and patties is one of my tricks. Yesterday, I whipped up these zucchini fritters for lunch. They’re flavourful and have a delicious, crispy texture so the boys do gobble them up. Phew. (P.S. My husband, otherwise, won’t even approach zucchini with a 10-ft pole.)

I, on the other hand, love zucchini. Give it to me in any way, shape, or form and I guarantee that it won’t be on my plate in seconds. It just won’t last with me. I recently heard of zucchini rice and can’t wait to make this one by Jennifer of Moms Vs the Boys! There are also zucchini pastas that I’ve been obsessing over recently, just like this Creamy 3-Cheese Zucchini Lasagna. My mouth is watering!

Can't get your kiddos to eat veggies? Okay, we've got the solution for you. These zucchini fritters are easy to whip-up and taste SO delicious - you can even fool the pickiest of eaters! #zucchinifritters

Zucchini Fritters


  • 2 medium-sized zucchinis, shredded
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 tsp garlic powder

Yields: 12-15 fritters


In a colander, sprinkle your shredded zucchini with salt and let sit for 10 minutes. With clean hands, soak out as much of the water from the zucchini and place on a plate, lined with a sheet of paper towel.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together eggs, flour and parmesan cheese. Add zucchini and mix until all ingredients are well-combined.

Line another plate with a sheet of paper towel and over medium-heat, heat a nonstick pan with olive oil.

Once hot, scoop 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture into the pan and fry for about 2 minutes. Flip over and fry for another 2 minutes and place on your lined plate.

In a separate bowl, mix together sour cream and garlic powder. This will be your dipping sauce for your fritters.

 Serve the zucchini fritters hot and enjoy!
