Garden Vegetable Fritters Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt for dipping.


  1. Place the shredded zucchini in a strainer over a bowl. Gently press down to squeeze out the excess liquid.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the strained shredded zucchini, shredded carrots, flour, scallions, eggs, garlic, and salt and pepper. Stir well to incorporate all ingredients.
  3. Place paper towels over a large plate, and set aside.
  4. Add the olive oil to a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Once the oil is shining in the pan, add about ¼ cup of the mixture into the pan, flattening it just a bit with your fingers. Continue adding the mixture as stated, spacing the fritters about one inch apart.
  5. Allow the fritters to cook for approximately three minutes, and then flip to cook the other side for one to two minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Place the fritters on the prepared plate to allow the excess grease to drip off.
  7. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
  8. Continue this process until all of the vegetable mixture is used.


  1. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
