These healthy zucchini and potato fritters are pan-fried with a drizzle of olive oil, for a crispy texture on the outside, and soft on the inside. Made with grated zucchini, potato, egg, chickpea flour, garlic, and herbs, they are gluten-free, dairy-free and full of nutrients.



1 cup of grated zucchini (after squeezing out the water) - approx. 1 large zucchini

1 cup of grated potato (after squeezing out the water)

3 tbsp of chickpea flour

1 tbsp of fresh parsley chopped

1/8 cup of purple onion finely diced

1/2 tsp of salt

1/4 tsp of ground pepper

1 small garlic clove grated (approx. 1/8 tsp)

1 large organic egg


  1. Start by squeezing out the excess of water from the grated potato. This step is super important!! It will ensure your fritters hold well together. Use a milk bag or a large gauze to do this process. Put the grated potato inside, and squeeze hard until there’s no more water coming out.
  2. Make the fritters mix: combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and mix well to combine.
  3. Pan fry the fritters: add a drizzle of olive oil to a pan on medium-high heat. Add the fritter batter and shape the patties with a tablespoon. Press each fritter with a spatula to compress. Cook for approx. 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Cook on the other side: add a drizzle of olive oil on top of the fritters. Flip each fritter using a spatula, press down to compress, and cook for another 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Serve the cooked fritters immediately.


Squeeze out the excess liquid from the grated zucchini and potato. This step is super important!! It will ensure your patties hold well together. Use a milk bag, a clean tea towel, or a large gauze to do this process.

Cook on medium-high to make sure they are nice and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.

You can make these fritters more or less crispy playing around with the amount of olive oil that you use. I find that a small drizzle makes them crispy without being too greasy. It is also healthier than deep frying.
