Fried Zucchini Fritters Recipe

These patties are great to make with kids – think of them as a vegetarian version of a hamburger without the bun.  They’re fast, crunchy, fun and a nice way to get vegetables onto the plate.  Have the little ones grate the zucchini while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.  For a completely vegetarian meal, serve the patties with an apple beet salad or the accompanying Garlic Yogurt Dip. Otherwise, serve them with the fried chicken.  If you’re shopping in a farmers’ market for this recipe, prepare this in the summer when zucchini are in season and at their best.
