I’m on a cooking thing right now. I promise you baking will happen soon. I really miss it but I’m just so indecisive when it comes to what to make. There are so many choices and just not enough time (or ingredients).
I’ve had a pack of zucchini waiting desperately for me to cook. The plan was to make zucchini chips but I never got around to it since I made those bacon avocado fries (if you missed that, check it out HERE). Thats the plan for this weekend (or at least some time this week).
When I searched up Pinterest, the first thing that popped up at me was Zucchini Fritters. Don’t know why. Maybe its the good balance of veggies and protein from eggs so it seemed like a good choice for dinner. Regardless, I love Pinterest and all the ideas its offered me.
You can find the recipe for this right HERE from Damn Delicious!
I did mine in 3 different batches testing out the heat and whatnot. The first time turned out in a disaster…
Well, it still tasted good and not burnt even but it did not look appealing…at all!
Second try was a little bit better…still needed a little bit of patience to get the flipping over part better.
Actually, this looks pretty nice, no? Its too bad that the flip side is not so good.
And then the third one, testing with a big one because I’m lazy and impatient at this point. I’m a pretty lousy cook mostly because I can have impressive amount of patience for baking (and crafts) but with cooking, I just really find it so difficult.
Big piece is not a good idea.
Now, there is one big change I made for this. The link to the recipe is up there if you want to take a peek before checking this part out. I didn’t grate the zucchini as I should have so thats why it was harder for it to stay together in one piece. I just absolutely loathe grating and I couldn’t find where mine went. It always seems to disappear on me.
- All-purpose flour was gluten-free
- Omit parmesan (next time I will try with lactose free cheese)
Another baking adventure done 🙂 This one I’m definitely going to revisit. It was so good! Sure, it didn’t look too pretty and dicing those zucchini in little pieces was incredibly tiresome and long to do but it paid off and thats what counts.
Next goal: Zucchini chips!
How do you like to make zucchini? Have you done fritters before? Any tips you’d like to share?
