Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters


Calories Per Serve: 121

Time To Prepare: 20 minutes

Serves: Makes 12, 2 fritters per serve


  • 500g  zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 bunch parsley chopped (60 g)
  • 1 bunch mint chopped (20g)
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • Good pinch sea salt
  • Generous grind of black pepper
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup (50 g)  almond meal*

*Almond meal alternatives:

  • 50 g of brown rice flour or chickpea flour can replace almond meal in this recipe.
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour can replace almond meal in this recipe


  • Place the grated zucchini into a colander. Sprinkle with a just little sea salt and mix through (not too much salt just a nice pinch). Let sit for 10 minutes
  • Squeeze out all the moisture from the zucchini with your hands.
  • Place the zucchini into a large bowl. Add parsley, mint, peas, spring onion, pepper, lemon zest, eggs and almond meal or the other alternative flours if using.
  • Mix well until combined.  At this stage it’s good to test cook a fritter to make sure it holds together well. Add a touch more almond meal or alternative flour if you need it.
  • Cook fritters in a pan over a medium heat in a little olive oil for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.
