Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small zucchinis
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. organic lemonzest
  • duck eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. of pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. organic coconut oil

Procedure:

  1. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate the zucchini, place them in a colander set in the sink, and toss with 1/2 tsp. of salt.
    Let stand for 10 minutes, and then wring the zucchini dry in a clean kitchen towel to remove moisture.
    Place the zucchini in a large bowl and gently mix in the egg, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon zest, onion powder, salt and pepper.
    Mix well to combine. Then slowly add the flour last while stirring so no lumps form.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp. of coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until the oil sizzles when you drop a small amount of the batter into the pan.
    Carefully drop the fritters into the pan, spacing them a few inches apart.
  3. Cook fritters for 2 to 3 minutes until golden, then lower heat to medium.
    Turn the fritters, and then repeat the process. Transfer the cooked fritters to a plate and set aside in a warm place.
