  • 1 average sized zucchini grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the grated zucchini in a sieve, pour the salt over it and allow to sit over the sink for about 5 to 10 minutes. After that time, squeeze the zucchini and push it down on the sieve to remove as much water as possible
  • In a large bowl, mix the drained zucchini and corn kernels with the egg until the kernels are coated
  • Using a sieve, slowly add in the flour and the baking powder to the corn mixture, and gently combine
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Heat some cooking oil of choice (I used avocado oil) in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add a tablespoon of the mixture at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes on one side, or until it's browned, flip, and cook another 3 minutes, or until it's browned. Remove and repeat for all the other corn fritters (I can usually fit about 4-5 into each batch).
  • Serve immediately.
