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.
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.
