I was in the mood this week for something fried and salty. My first thought was homemade French fries, but when I started looking around the kitchen and then saw my massive pile of zucchini, a light went on. My mom would make potato patties in a similar way to this recipe, so I thought, let’s just switch this out with zucchini and some carrots. And voila, you have the best recipe for a family dinner.
The family loved these Zucchini & Carrot Fritters and asked for me to make them again, that’s a win in my book! And it’s the perfect way to use that big pile of zucchini I know you have. Don’t you love that summer pile of zucchini sitting on your counter, subtly making you feel guilty for neglecting them? Well, use them up and enjoy the results!

Zucchini & Carrot Fritters
- 3 1/2 C. Shredded Zucchini
- 1 C. Shredded Carrots
- 2 large Eggs
- 1/2 C. Flour
- 1/4 C. Grated Cheddar Cheese
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
- Oil to fry in my favorite oils to fry with are avocado oil, sunflower seed oil, & coconut oil
In a large bowl combine the zucchini, and carrots together. Add the eggs, flour, cheese, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Mix well. Put about an 1/8 inch of oil n a large frying pan, and place it over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, spoon small mounds of your mixture into the pan. Press down to make a disc shaped patty, and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate, and sprinkle with coarse salt. Repeat with remaining fritter mixture.
*Note If you are using frozen shredded Zucchini or if its super moist, put in a cheese cloth lined colander in the sink, sprinkle a 1/2 tsp. Salt over it and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Then squeeze out the excess moisture, and you are ready to go!
