Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. I love all types of Italian vegetables, but especially the kind with the seeds in it – called Zucchini. Why? Because they are kind of cheap and they taste great. If you have ever tried eating a potato that has been fried, you know what I’m talking about when I say that the texture and taste are almost not the same.
If you want to try making Zucchini Fritters, then it starts with a clean slate. First, you need to gather your ingredients. How to make Zucchini Fritters starts with a clean slate. In a large non-stick frying pan or skillet, toss together three parts of unsalted or ground garlic, a quarter of a cup of chopped fresh green onions, and a quarter of a cup of grated zucchini. Stir together all of these ingredients.
Once you have these items in place, you are ready to mix them together in one smooth motion. Add the chopped green onions, garlic and zucchini fritters to the mix. Cover the ingredients in the pan and bring to a medium heat. Once this has been done, remove the pan from the heat, let the contents cool down for about ten minutes, and then use a fork to mix the ingredients again.
Now it’s time to put the Zucchini Fritters into the oven and cook them on a hot surface, such as a cast iron skillet. Make sure the skillet is well coated with olive oil or other cooking spray before placing any ingredients in. When the fritters are halfway cooked, add the remaining ingredients and cover for about five minutes. During this time the fritter will need to be carefully flipped so that both sides have a cooked bottom. At this point you can either cut the fritter into wedges or divide the ingredients into thirds and continue cooking them in separate bowls.
After about five minutes, turn the fritter over and continue cooking. Once the bottom is done, turn the other half of the fritter over and continue cooking, using the same instructions that apply when the first side is finished. At this point, it is advisable to switch the fritter over to a plate. Remove the spiced onion mixture that remained behind in the bottom of the bowl and discard it. Salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
If the fritters are too dense, you can add a small amount of sour cream to soften the consistency. Add the zucchini to the food processor or blender, and process until it becomes a smooth paste. Add the sour cream and mix until completely blended. Fill the fritters with the blended mixture and fold them over to make four delicious layers. These fritters are delicious served just as they are or served as a dessert after the main course has been served.
For an added boost of flavor, slather some olive oil on the fritters as they are baking and before serving. Slathering some olive oil on the fritters will help them have a crunchier texture while providing extra moisture. This combination of olive oil, sour cream and zucchini fritters provides for a delicious and unique twist on the traditional bread and butter fritter.
