Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Fritters with Herb-Garlic Aioli

Ingredients

For the Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters:
  • 1-1/4 pounds zucchini squash, grated (2 medium)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup blanched almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 3 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil for cooking
For the Herb-Garlic Aioli
  • ½ cup Hampton Creek Garlic Mayo
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped

Instructions

Prepare the Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters
  1. Rinse, trim, and grate the zucchini using a box grater.
  2. Place the shreds in a colander and sprinkle salt over the shreds.
  3. Place the colander over the sink and allow zucchini to drain for 1 hour in order to remove any water.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond meal, flax seed, all-purpose flour, and parmesan cheese.
  5. Add the shredded zucchini to a different bowl and whisk in the lightly-beaten egg. Pour the dry flour mixture into the bowl with the zucchini and stir to combine. Allow fritter mixture to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Heat 2 to 3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil (or high-temp oil of choice) over medium heat in a cast iron skillet (or medium-high in a regular skillet), enough to generously coat the surface.
  7. Using your hands, form patties that are roughly ¼ cup each. Gently place them on the hot cast iron and allow them to cook until the sides begin to firm up, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip to the other side and cook an additional 3 minutes, or until fritters are cooked through.
Prepare the Herb-Garlic Aioli:
  1. Combine all ingredients for the aioli in a small bowl and stir together well. Add salt or additional lemon juice to taste.
  2. Serve the fritters fresh from the skillet with herb-garlic aioli.
