Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 15 mins 30 mins 4 servings


  • 2 medium zucchini, grated and squeezed dry (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (30 grams)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying

Note: If you prefer a gluten-free version, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend.

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the grated zucchini, salt, and black pepper. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to allow the zucchini to release its moisture. Then, using a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth, squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the zucchini.

  2. Transfer the squeezed zucchini to a separate bowl. Add the Parmesan cheese, flour, minced garlic, chopped parsley, and beaten eggs. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop about 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture and drop it into the skillet, flattening it slightly with a spatula. Repeat with the remaining mixture, leaving some space between each fritter.

  4. Cook the fritters for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy. You may need to cook them in batches, depending on the size of your skillet.

  5. Once cooked, transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the zucchini fritters hot, alongside a bowl of tzatziki sauce for dipping. The cool and tangy tzatziki complements the crispy fritters perfectly.
  • These fritters make a great appetizer for parties or gatherings. Arrange them on a platter with a side of tzatziki sauce and watch them disappear.
  • For a complete meal, serve the fritters with a refreshing green salad or a side of roasted vegetables.

Enjoy these zucchini fritters with tzatziki sauce as a delightful gluten-free snack or light meal. They are easy to make and bursting with flavor. Whether you're following a gluten-free diet or simply looking for a tasty way to enjoy zucchini, these fritters are a must-try.
