Mexican Zucchini Fritters - Low carb, gluten free, grain free, dairy free. Follow guesswhoscooking.com on Twitter @guesswhoscookin and on Pinterest www.pinterest.com/guesswhoscookin

Ingredients

1/2 cup onion, diced

1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced

1/2 cup poblano pepper, diced

2 cups zucchini, shredded

1/4 cup green onion, sliced

4 eggs, whisked

1/2 cup almond meal

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

salt and pepper to taste

coconut oil for cooking

 

Directions

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add about 1 teaspoon coconut oil. When the pan is hot, add onions. Cook 1-2 minutes, then add garlic, and cook for 30-60 seconds until fragrant. Add bell peppers and poblano peppers. Cook until vegetables are somewhat tender and onions are somewhat translucent. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, green onion, eggs, almond meal, cumin, salt and pepper, then stir in cooked pepper mixture. Preheat a nonstick pan (such as cast iron or ceramic, not Teflon) over medium heat and add about 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Once pan is hot, add about 1/4 of the zucchini mixture. Once the edges are cooked and the underside is golden brown, flip the fritter. Cook until the underside is golden brown.

 

Note: If you don’t have almond meal, you could try coconut flour or whole wheat flour, but I haven’t personally tried it.
