Looking for some more breakfast inspo? Here it is!
These low carb, gluten free fritters are so simple to make and taste great for lunch or a snack too.
They’re a great way to sneak some veggies more into your kids lives too!
Zucchini is super low in calories and carbs, yet high in fibre, so they make such a great addition to meals when you are watching your weight. It means we can bulk things out to make bigger servings (yes!) without all of the added calories. This is what I like to do with lots of my cooking.
So here’s the recipe!
Give them a go this weekend and let me know what you think!
5 Ingredient Keto Zucchini Fritters
Gluten free, low carb, high protein, dairy free option.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
1 large zucchini
40 g parmesan cheese or vegan alternative (approx 1/4 cup) (optional)
2 tbsp almond meal
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
1 tbsp olive oil, butter or ghee
Fresh chopped chives
Grate zucchini, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible with a clean teatowel or muslin cloth.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, then add zucchini, parmesan cheese or vegan alternative, almond meal, salt and pepper. Mix together well and let sit for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a large frypan over medium-high heat with olive oil, butter or ghee.
When hot, scoop heaped spoonfuls of the fritter mix onto the pan (divide into 4), pushing them gently into a flattened, round shape. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to cook these in 2 batches.
After 2-3 minutes gently flip the fritters over. They should be cooked through after another 2-3 minutes, remove from the pan and enjoy.
Serve on a bed of rocket and cherry tomatoes topped with a big spoonful of Bec's "Creamy Avocado Pesto" (about 1/6th of the pesto) and 1 tbsp greek or coconut yogurt, a squeze of lemon juice and fresh chives.
If you dont have the pesto made, drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil or have 1/2 small avocado plus the yogurt, lemon juice and chives.
The leftover 2 will make another great breakfast or lunch!
Note: Makes 4 fritters, a serve is 2 fritters.
