Mini Zucchini Fritters

These Mini Zucchini Fritters are the perfect healthy holiday appetizer! They are moist in the inside, crispy on the outside, and pack a flavorful nutrition punch. Serve with tzatziki sauce (made with dill and cucumbers) as the perfect Mediterranean-inspired holiday bite. 


Ingredients


What (your ingredients):


2 cups grated zucchini


1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed


¼ yellow onion, diced


1 clove garlic, minced


Juice of ½ lemon


1 egg


¼ cup plain Greek yogurt


¾ cup breadcrumbs


¼ teaspoon salt


1 tablespoon olive oil for sautéing


Directions


How (your directions):


Place grated zucchini in a cheesecloth, nut milk bag, or paper towels and squeeze out all the liquid.


Add grated zucchini to a food processor, along with the drained and rinsed chickpeas, diced yellow onion, minced garlic clove, lemon juice, egg, Greek yogurt, breadcrumbs, and salt.


Pulse 5-10 times until mixture is combined but still has some texture.


Form into 16-18 small patties and place on a platter.  Place in fridge for 5-7 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat.


Add mini zucchini fritters to the pan and cook on each side, approximately 3 minutes per side.


Serve over a bed of Bibb lettuce with tzatziki sauce on the side.


Why (the science):  Zucchini is high in vitamin A, which supports healthy vision and a healthy immune system.  Onions and garlic reduce your risk of cancer, and chickpeas are a great source of satisfying protein and fiber.
