I try a lot of new recipes at home (like these veggie fritters), and a lot of the time they don’t garner the reaction that I want. I’ve become quite used to trying recipes, presenting them to the family, and then getting a lack lustre response in return. Those recipes don’t make the blog, of course, but I have also learned to lower my expectations when awaiting their responses.
These though, these passed the test. Shane was all “THESE ARE THE BEST THINGS I’VE EATEN!” and I was like, “Are you lying?” and he wasn’t. So these veggie fritters are officially the best things he’s eaten.
If that’s not enough to convince you to make them, I don’t know what is. You could serve them with a tzatziki, a guacamole, a salsa, or salad. You could have them for brekky, lunch or dinner and you could totally eat them hot or cold. These guys are the most laid-back food ever. Just make them and eat them, and tell me you love them.
Why are my fritters soggy?
There are few reasons your veggie fritters might be soggy. One might be having the oil too low, which will mean it will be absorbing the oil as it cooks. Another reason might be too much liquid. Make sure you squeeze any excess water out of the zucchini after grating.
How do I keep fritters crispy?
When cooking, the best way to keep these crispy is by avoiding piling them in top of each other. Overcrowding them will result in sweating, and then less crispy fritters. Other factors will be, cooking in hot oil, and keeping them warm in the oven at low temperature while cooking the whole batch.
What is the best oil to cook fritters in?
Sunflower oil or vegetable oil is best for cooking the fritters in. Avoid olive oil as the flavour is too intense and will overtake the other flavours in these vegetable fritters.
What should you serve with veggie fritters?
You can serve with a beautiful avocado salsa, tzatziki or garlic dip, or even with bacon and eggs.Print
