Zucchini fritters

zucchini fritters

I didn’t have much time so far to get down to some real cooking here for this blog, but it’s always easier to start with something :) So I decided to remind of something that all Russian people probably know since they were little.

The thing is: my husband doesn’t like veggies. To the point that I have to discover ways to serve them unnoticed whenever I cook for the two of us.
Zucchini was always a big trouble, until I thought «wait! I can do pancakes with that!» . So the morning I did these fritters Alex actually ate the whole portion, craved for more, and then curiously asked what was that actually made of. I laughed seeing his face cringing at the thought had just lost this fight :)

I love these fritters also because it’s so easy and quick to make: won’t take you longer than 20 minutes, I guess.

For 2:
2 medium-sized zucchini (grated)
1 egg (beaten)
4 tablespoonful of flour (I had a mixture of regular, whole wheat and corn, but it’s your call)
1/2 tablespoon of baking powder
Bunch of herbs of your choice (I had dill), salt, pepper to tasting

Heat the frying pan with a little bit of olive oil. Mix it all together, take a spoonful of batter at a time and fry over medium heat. Turn when you feel that the bottom part is solid.

I served it with fresh quark with herbs, spring onions and pomegranate.
