If you're trying to sneak in veggies, these zucchini-scallion fritters are the way to do it—they're savory and delicious.


  • 1 pound (about 2 medium) zucchini, coarsely grated

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 scallions, finely chopped

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • Sour cream, for serving


  1. Place zucchini in a colander set in the sink, and toss with 1 teaspoon salt; let drain 10 minutes. Press out as much liquid as possible.

  2. Whisk egg in a large bowl; mix in zucchini, scallions, flour, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until combined.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook fritters in two batches: Drop six mounds of batter (2 tablespoons each) into skillet; flatten slightly. Cook, turning once, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a papertowel-lined plate; sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately, with sour cream.
