Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour (or whole grain)

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 chia/flax egg (1 tbsp chia seeds/ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp water, see notes)

½ cup almond milk (or other nut milk)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 ½ cup zucchini (grated, squeezed and drained, about 2 medium-sized zucchini)

1 ear corn (kernels cut off the cob, about 1 cup corn kernels)

½ jalapeño pepper (finely chopped)

3 cloves garlic (minced)

3 scallions (diced)

1/3 cup parsley (or cilantro, chopped)

1 tbsp lime juice (or lemon juice)

2 tablespoons olive oil (or other frying oil, to fry)

Marinara sauce/vegan sour cream (to serve)

Directions

Prepare the zucchini

Grate 2 medium-sized zucchini (about 1 ½ cups) into a bowl or colander that is prepared with a clean dish towel or cheese cloth that is laid into it. Add a pinch of salt, and leave for 10 minutes. Take the edges of the towel (like you would a garbage bag), twist the top of the cloth over a sink or bowl until it squeezes the zucchini and drains the excess liquid. Try to squeeze as much liquid as you can.

Make the chia egg

Mix three tablespoons of water and one tablespoon of chia seeds or ground flax seeds in a small bowl. Let the mixture thicken for 5 minutes.

Mix the batter

Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the chia egg, almond milk and olive oil and mix again with a whisk.

Add grated zucchini, corn kernels, finely chopped jalapeño, minced garlic, diced scallions and chopped parsley. Sprinkle with lime juice. Mix it all together.

Fry the fritters

Heat up a pan to medium heat and place one or two tablespoons of oil into the pan. Portion out one heaped tablespoon of batter per fritter and fry in batches over medium heat for about five minutes per side. Cover after flipping.

Serve

Serve the fritters with your favorite dip or salad (more serving suggestions below).
