Snag at your favorite downtown farmers’ market:

Zucchini (1 ½ lbs grated)
Eggs (1 large, beaten)
Olive oil (2 tbsp)

Grab at your local grocers:

Flour (1/4 cup)
Parmesan (1/4 cup, grated)
Salt (1 tsp)
Pepper (to taste)




1) Toss grated zucchini and salt in a colander over the sink; let sit for 10 minutes.

2) Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain zucchini completely.

3) In a large bowl, combine zucchini, flour, Parmesan, garlic and egg; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

4) Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

5) Scoop tablespoons of batter for each fritter, flattening with a spatula, and cook until the underside is nicely golden brown, about 2 minutes.

6) Flip and cook on the other side, about 1-2 minutes longer.

7) Serve immediately.
