  • 1 cup zucchini grated, moisture squeezed out
  • 1 cup frozen corn thawed
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Grate zucchini over top of a few paper towels or cheese cloth, then squeeze out the moisture as best you can; transfer the zucchini to a large bowl.
  • Next, add all of the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the olive oil to the bowl and use a rubber spatula to stir so that everything is combined.
  • Use your hands to form the mixture into balls, then press down to form them into patties/fritters. You should end up with 7-9 fritters depending on the size.
  • Next, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then place the fritters into the skillet and cook them for 2 minutes. Flip them over and use your spatula to flatten them out a bit more. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover the skillet and continue cooking for 2-4 more minutes or until they're warmed through and golden brown on the outside.
  • Serve fritters with chipotle aioli, avocado mayo or your favorite condiment and enjoy!
