Fritters are a the perfect summertime dish to help use up veggies from your garden.  They’re super versatile – you can substitute any veggies that you like or have on hand.  Serve them as appetizers, or they make a delicious side dish along with fish or chicken off the grill, but in the summer when I’m in the mood for a light meal I think they make a fantastic lunch or dinner by themselves.

I’m sending this recipe to Reeni of Cinnamon & Spice for her Side Dish Showdown.  July’s theme is Anything Goes! 

I’m also sending this recipe off to Chaya of Sweet and Savory for My Meatless Mondays!

Vegetable Fritters
(Yield:  Serves 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main)
1 medium zucchini, diced small (about 2 c diced)
1 small ear cooked corn, cut of the cob (about 1/2 c to 3/4 c corn)
3 spring onions (white and green parts), thinly sliced (reserve 2 TB of the thinly sliced green parts)
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 c low-fat sour cream
1/4 c plain, low-fat yogurt
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
Canola oil (for shallow frying)
Large skillet
Preheat the oven to 200F.  In a small bowl, toss together the zucchini, corn, spring onions, flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Stir in the beaten eggs just until combined.  Pour enough oil into a large skillet to generously coat the bottom.  Heat the skillet over medium to medium-high heat, then drop the vegetable batter by the rounded tablespoonful into the hot oil and cook until golden brown on both sides, flipping once (about 5 minutes per side).  Turn the heat down if the fritters start to brown too quickly. 
Once the fritters are cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil, then transfer them to a baking sheet and keep them in warm the oven until all the fritters are made.  Repeat this process until all the batter is gone. 
In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, yogurt, seasoned salt, and 1 TB sliced spring onion greens.
Serve the fritters garnished with the sour cream mixture and the remaining 1 TB of sliced spring onion greens.

    These look fabulous, Faith. I am copying right now. I have made zucchini fritters (who hasn’t when you have never-ending zucchini in your garden?) but never thought to add corn and scallions. I love the sour cream and yogurt mixture!

    Hi Faith,

    I am going to take a couple of weeks off at the end of July for our summer vacation. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a guest blog post on my site? It can be 1 or 2 posts that you already have or a new one if you like. Please let me know! Thank you so much!

    Mmmm, this looks fantastic! I am sure you’ve noticed I am constantly looking for yummy sides for when Matthew and I grill out, which we do a lot of in the summer. I may just have to try this and post it very soon!

    I’ve made some similar fritters in the past…a little free-style unfortunately and have no written recipe anywhere. Therefore, your recipe will come in very handy…especially since I can really appreciate the ingredients you used.

    BTW…the next time you stop by my place…there is something for you to pick up on my APPRECIATION page.

    Ciao for now and flavourful wishes,

    how could a person ever turn away a fritter? i like that your batch is made with a medley of veggies–that alone makes them even more appealing. :)

    Your veggie fritters look wonderful. This is also a great way to use summer produce like zucchini, the vegetable that keeps on giving all summer. What a perfect appetizer this would make-very nice.

    Delicious recipes, Faith! I have so many of your recipes saved that I’m never going to get to them all :P I hope to try these when we get our first CSA batch, fingers crossed!
