  • ½ cup flour (60g)
  • ½ cup grated parmesian cheese (50g)
  • 1 tsp salt + salt and pepper to taste


  • Grate the zucchini sprinkle with the tsp of salt and set aside. ( the salt will draw the extra moisture out of the zucchini
  • mix together all of the rest of the ingredients and stir to mix.

  • Alternately bake the Fritters on a sheet pan at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, or until browned and the centers are set.

For the dip add some vegetable or french onion dip mix to the sour cream.
