INGREDIENTS

For the Fritters:

  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 3/4 cup plant-based milk made with the NutraMilk (I used cashew milk)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. corn meal
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp of fresh herbs such as parsley (optional for garnish)
  • butter, butter alternative or oil of choice

For cashew milk

  • 1 cup (150g) cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

For cashew Milk

  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.
  • Place grated zucchini in a colander over the sink. Sprinkle salt and let sit for 10-15 minutes to release liquid and then drain completely.
  • In a bowl, add the remaining fritter ingredients and whisk until a batter is formed.
  • Add zucchini once liquid has drained and mix to combine into batter.

  • Heat olive oil, butter or butter alternative in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Using a 1/4 measuring cup scoop the batter and pour into piles in the hot pan, flattening with a spatula, and cook until the underside is nicely golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side, about 1-2 minutes longer.
  • Remove from the heat and place on paper towels to drain.
  • Fill the pan with as many as you can fit and repeat process for the next batch.
  • Serve topped with sour cream or any dip of choice and a sprinkle of parsley to garnish.
