Here is a recipe that takes advantage of both the corn and the overabundant supply of zucchini!!
Corn and Zucchini Fritters
- 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
- 3 Tbsp water
- 1 1/4 cups corn flour (not corn meal)
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- 1 cup coarsely grated zucchini
- 1 cup fresh corn scraped from the cob
- 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 chopped green onion
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine flax seeds and water and set aside to gel. Mix all dry ingredients, then prepare your veggies and herbs. Combine almond milk with the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in all veggies and herbs and season with salt and pepper.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. If desired add a small amount of vegetable oil to your pan, but you can leave this out to avoid extra oil and calories. Drop dollops of batter into the heated pan and fry on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Serve warm with my Dairy Free Tzatziki or your condiment of choice! In the picture above I served them with a curried cream sauce, but any kind of chutney or salsa will work!
