This is a Smitten Kitchen recipe.
I never know what to do with zucchini. Sometimes I grill it with peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Sometimes I make my mom’s zucchini bread. But until I tried these fritters, I hadn’t bought zucchini to highlight as an ingredient. So if you have some zucchini sitting neglected at the bottom of your CSA box, give these a fry.
I can’t believe I’m really presenting this as a “recipe.”
There are three ways I could pitch this.
First, I could emphasize that there are only three ingredients, which is far fewer than in microwave popcorn. But fewer ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean its any healthier.
Second, I could emphasize that this recipe is so simple that a monkey could follow it, assuming that a monkey knows enough about stovetop safety. But let’s be honest, sticking a bag the right side down in the microwave is obviously easier than this method.
Third, I could emphasize how cheap this recipe is. Microwave popcorn is surprisingly expensive. However, unless you eat a lot of popcorn, the difference only amounts to a few dollars.
Instead I will just say that this is how I make popcorn and I like it, so you should try it.
This is a loose recipe that is useful for fajitas, to eat with rice and beans, to put on salads, or to add to a sandwich. It’s great for cleaning out your fridge and using up half an onion that you have left over from some other recipe.
