Spread the love

Zucchini Fritters with Avocado Dip are not only incredibly delicious but also super healthy and easy to make. Once you try them you will fall in love.

It is truly amazing how sometimes our plans do not go our way, yet everything works out even better at the end. Yes, you are guessing right, I am talking about these delicious Zucchini Fritters! My original plan was to make ZUCCHINI BOATS, which is one of my older recipes that you can find on MAIN COURSE page.

However, I wanted to make them again because I need better photos and also a video. Unfortunately, The zucchini our local supermarket is selling right now are thin, therefore I had to come up with an alternative. I had already cooked quinoa ready, so the ide that came to me was Zucchini Fritters recipe.

Nevertheless, I even changed my mind, shortly before I begin shooting the video and I didn’t even use that quinoa! In this spare of a moment I was about to take a huge risk, but my intuition was telling me to for it so I did! And when I tasted the first patty, I was in love that came out of the oven, I was in love!

This doesn’t mean I am not going to make the Zucchini Boats, however, I have to wait little bit longer for the right size zucchini. And by the way, you can use this recipe for other veggie fritters, especially if you have a juicer. Using the veggie leftovers after you make your juice, for example carrots and celery, can workout quite well.

Let me know what you think about this recipe and I hope you will try it. By the way, video is included in the recipe, so please have a look. Thank you so much for visiting and I wish you a wonderful week.
