Ingredients

  • 2 whole free range eggs
  • 1 small or 1/2 large zucchini, grated (approx. 1 cup grated)
  • 2 sprigs parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbls coconut flour
  • 1 heaped tbls psyllium husk
  • pinch sea/rock/himalayan salt
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for cooking

Method

  1. Heat a non-stick cooking pan on medium heat.
  2. Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk.
  3. Grate zucchini and add into the bowl with the eggs. Add in all other ingredients (except for the extra virgin olive oil) and mix until combined.
  4. Add about 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil to the pan, enough to lightly cover the area you will pour the fritter mixture onto. Pour about 1/4 of the fritter mixture onto the pan and lightly press down with the back of a spatula. You can use more or less or the mixture depending on the size you want your fritters. Just don’t make them too thick or they don’t cook through well.
  5. Cook for a few minutes each side until browned and cooked through.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 for the remaining of the mixture.
  7. Serve up on their own, or add a fresh salad, or top with smoked salmon or a poached egg for a larger meal.
