green fritters – zucchini and broccoli

green patties

I am a firm believer in the truth that most things can be turned into patties or fritters and they will taste good.

At the moment I am putting grated zucchini into everything. My hand has been forced by the neglect of a few zucchini that have grown into monsters in just a few short days. You can see a couple of them lurking in the background of the photo. They are about 40cm long.

For dinner I decided to make some green fritters, so called because everything in them is green. They are not spiced apart from some parsley, garlic, salt and a small amount of grated dried up vegan cheese that I found lurking in the fridge. The zucchini and broccoli are not hidden in these fritters. They are the stars. The two work well together with the zucchini forming a soft background and the broccoli providing a little bit of bite.

They are easy to make and delicious and they take just five minutes to prepare, and a little more than 10 minutes to cook.

  1. Yep I’m with you there about pattyfying and fritterfying things, ditto for crumbed. I don’t care if I hate a particular food, if it’s crumbed I will eat it 😉
