  • 2 medium zucchinis, grated (about 2 cups)

  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your choice)

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)

  • Cooking oil for frying (avocado oil or olive oil is a good choice)


1. Grate and Drain Zucchini:

  • Grate the zucchinis using a box grater or food processor. Place the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth, and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

2. Prepare the Batter:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, grated cheese, almond flour, minced garlic, sliced green onions, eggs, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything until well combined.

3. Heat Cooking Oil:

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a few tablespoons of cooking oil.

4. Form and Fry Fritters:

  • Scoop a spoonful of the zucchini mixture and gently flatten it in your hand to form a fritter. Carefully place it in the hot skillet. Repeat with the remaining mixture, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.

5. Fry Until Golden:

  • Fry the fritters for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy. You may need to work in batches.

6. Drain and Serve:

  • Transfer the cooked fritters to a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil.

7. Enjoy:

  • Serve the Low-Carb Zucchini and Cheese Fritters hot as a tasty and low-carb appetizer. They're great on their own or with a dipping sauce of your choice.

These Low-Carb Zucchini and Cheese Fritters are a delicious and crispy way to enjoy zucchini while keeping your carb intake in check. Whether you're following a low-carb diet or simply looking for a flavorful starter, these fritters are sure to please your palate.
