Tasty Millet Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini are one of my favorite vegetables because it doesn’t have a strong flavor and is really versatile.

And even though the season may be over, a week does not go by that I would not have zucchini in the fridge.

When I have a really large zucchini haul, I like to grate them and turn them into these Tasty Millet Zucchini Fritters!

We must have eaten a ton of these this past summer and fall. And no wonder, as they are delicious and easy to make. 

How do I make Millet Zucchini Fritters?

Just grate zucchini, season with salt and let rest for about half an hour so they let out the excess water. Then drain the zucchini and in a large bowl combine with other ingredients, such as cooked millet, breadcrumbs, herbs, spices, and eggs. 

Then shape the batter into patties and fry up in a pan on medium heat. 

And that’s all there is to it!

What to serve these Zucchini Fritters with?

We recommend serving them with plant-based yogurt or garlic sauce. They are excellent in salads or tortilla wraps, and you can even have them in burgers!

Are these Millet Zucchini Fritters vegan?

This recipe is not vegan, but the fritters are vegetarian, using two eggs as a binding agent. The egg also makes the patties tender and moist.

If you want to make these Zucchini fritters vegan, replace the egg with some 1/4 cup vegan butter or olive oil.

Are these Zucchini Fritters soggy?

No! When freshly made, the fritters are crisp on the outside and light and moist in the center. Make sure to fry them on medium heat, they will burn on high heat and get soggy on low heat. Also, make sure the batter is light and airy.

How do I store these Fritters?

You can store the Zucchini fritters refrigerated in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.

      Thanks for pointing it out, it’s not very precise 🙂 I suggest about 4 tbs chopped parsley, will update the recipe to reflect the more accurate measurement.

    I have a huge weakness for these fritters. I’ve made them countless times and never had a failure. They’re super tasty. If I could eat these for every meal, I think I would. Zucchini are one of my favorite vegetables, too, so I make dishes with them on a regular basis. Highly recommend everyone to give these fritters a try. Believe me, they taste amazing.
    Thank you for sharing such a great idea with us. I hope it will inspire many of your followers. Looking forward to your new fab recipes. I love your wonderful blog. I’ll be coming around often.
