Veggie Fritters

Veggie Fritters

Vegetable fritters are a simple and delicious way to use lots of fresh produce from the farm.  They are great as a side for any meal or as a healthy full-flavored snack. Serve with sour cream or use fresh herbs and a little lime juice mixed in with yogurt for a delicious dip.

Veggie Fritters

1 cup new potatoes, shredded
2 cups summer squash, shredded
1 cup broccoli, finely chopped
3 garlic scapes, finely chopped
3 scallions, finely chopped
3-4 Tbsp olive or avocado oil
1 Tbsp fresh herbs, finely chopped
½ cup flour
¾ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 Tbsp butter
Garnish- sour cream and chopped scallions

  • Prepare all the vegetables. Shred or finely chop.
  • Remove excess water from the shredded potatoes and summer squash by placing them between paper towels. Press out as much water as you can.  You can also use a nut milk bag for this step.

  • Place oil in large frying pan. Heat to medium heat and then turn down to low.
  • Add broccoli, garlic scapes, and scallions to the pan. Cover and sauté for 2 minutes.  Stir frequently.
  • Add potatoes and summer squash. Mix well, cover, and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Remove cooked vegetables from the pan and place in medium bowl. Allow vegetables to cool to room temperature.  If you want to speed up this process, place the bowl in the fridge or freezer.

  • In a small bowl, mix the fresh herbs, flour, salt, and pepper. Once the cooked vegetables are cooled, add the flour mixture and eggs.  Mix well to fully combine all ingredients.
  • Heat butter in large frying pan. Scoop ¼ cup of batter (an ice cream scoop works great) and place in pan.

  • Flatten with spatula.  You should fit about 4 fritters at a time.  Cook about 2-3 minutes per side on medium low heat.  The fritters should be golden brown on both sides.
  • Place cooked fritters on paper towel lined plate.
  • Serve fritters hot or cold. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a few chopped scallions.

  • You can store cooked fritters in the fridge for a few days or you can freeze them.

*You can also bake the fritters in the oven (425°F for about 15-20 minutes) or air fry them (400°F for 8-10 minutes).
