  • Prep Time: 35 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 21 fritters 1x


  • 41/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 4 medium, 2 lbs)
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup nondairy milk
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (e.g., olive oil, avocado oil)


  1. Set a mesh sieve or colander over the large bowl; line with a clean dish towel
  2. Place zucchini on top of towel and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Let stand for at least 30 minutes
  3. Gather the ends of the dish towel together and squeeze as much liquid as possible from the zucchini into the bowl; discard liquid and place zucchini in bowl.
  4. Add the milk, green onions, chickpea flour, baking powder, Sriracha, and remaining salt to bowl; mix with wooden spoon until well blended.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, drop 1/4 cupfuls of zucchini mixture into skillet, flattening slightly; cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter, adding remaining oil as needed.


*You can keep the fritters warm in a 200°F oven as you cook the batches.
*Feel free to vary these with your favorites herbs (e.g., basil, dill,cilantro) or a bit of nutritional yeast for a cheese-y flavor.
