- 2 tbsp. of Olive Oil
- 3 cups zucchini – grated
- 1 cup onion – diced
- 2 eggs
- 1 packet IP Potato Puree
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. chili powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
Pour the olive oil in a skillet so that it’s a quarter-inch deep and turn the heat to medium.
Meantime, combine the zucchini, onion, and eggs in a large bowl.
Give the mixture a good stir to combine and gets all frothy.
Stir and combine the IP potato puree, baking powder, ½ tsp. of chili powder, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture and fold it all together.
Dip a spoon in the batter and then dip in oil to see if it’s ready. If the oil bubbles in contact with the batter, it’s hot enough.
Drop batter into the oil with the heaping tablespoon (you should be able to fry about six fritters at a time). Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Once the centers are firm, remove the fritters from the skillet and let them drain on a dinner plate lined with a paper towel.
You can also bake instead of frying. Simply bake at 375° for 7 mins on each side.
Serve and Enjoy!
