Zucchini Fritters

Darren came across a similar recipe to this on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.  I'm always looking for something different to make that has normal ingredients and goes great with salads and meats.  Darren was thrilled to have another excuse to fire up the bbq.
The recipe below is one I made up from the original recipe using what I already had on hand..

1 large Zucchini
1 small Carrot
2 medium Silverbeet leaves, finely chopped
1/2 cup of Plain Flour
2 Eggs
1/2 cup of grated Cheese
Zest of 1 Lemon
Season to taste with dried onion flakes,  parsley,  garlic powder and salt and pepper.
Oil for frying

Grate the zucchini with the large holes on your grater.
Use the fine grating side to grate the carrot.
Squeeze out all the liquid from the zucchini and carrot.
Add all other ingredients and mix well.
Heat a small amount of oil in a large fry pan or on the bbq.
Drop a soup spoonful of mixture into the oil and spread  slightly.
Cook for 2 - 3 minutes on each side on a medium heat
Serve with sour cream,  tomato sauce or a dip of your choice


*  I didn't have lemon zest in the freezer so I just used lemon juice.
*  If you don't have silverbeet on hand,  spinach or any green herbs will work too.
*  Darren used a bbq mat on his bbq to cook the fritters.  This really helped with the clean up and still gave the fritters lots of color.
*  Fritters can be frozen but need go between or squares of cereal packet in between each fritter to help separate.
*  If you have an air fryer,  fritters can be reheated in about 3 minutes.

Makes about 15 fritters.
