Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday Zucchini Kale Fritters


Just Another Meatless Monday Zucchini Kale Fritters

Hey What's For Dinner

Zucchini season is here. I know you must be thrilled! So much zucchini to make all those recipes. What? You don't have zucchini? Yeah well me either, the slugs have almost won this year! AGAIN. Every year I plan on a HUGE squash harvest and it's meh at best. I'm beginning to feel like a bad gardener. Good thing zucchini is cheap and plentiful at the road side stand and in the grocery stores. You're going to need about 2 pounds to make these fritters.

Zucchini Kale Fritters

2 pounds of zucchini
3/4 cup of kale-any variety
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder or  1/2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
good dash of pepper
1 egg
1-2 TBSP cooking oil

wash and dry your veggies
grate them in the food processor fitted with the grater blade or use a box grater on the zucchini and finely chop the kale
mix together the zucchini, kale and salt
let rest in a colander for 10-15 minutes
squeeze out as much water as possible
mix the the zucchini with the curry powder, garlic and egg
heat a frying pan over medium heat when hot add a dash of oil
wash your hands, grab a small handful of the fritter mix, give it a squeeze, roll it around and flatten it to make a patty
fill the pan with patties but leave enough room to turn them
when they are browned on the bottom flip and brown the tops
remove to covered platter to keep warm
repeat with the remaining mix adding more oil to the pan as needed
serve warm with a dollop of yogurt or chutney if desired

Peace and Love--



  1. HI,
    I shared my Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies (GF DF) as well as an article about the major FOOD FIGHT in California!

    Thanks for hosting!

  2. The slugs got my peas and beans, but I do have some summer squash. Interestingly they were supposed to be zucchini, but the nursery that I use gave me summer squash instead. I'm pretty sure I could use them in your delicious kale fritters as well. What a great recipe - wholesome and delicious!

  3. I have a friend whose kids would never eat veggies unless they were in fritters. I hadn't thought about that in years, since said "kids" are now between 24 and 34!

  4. Thanks for hosting! I linked up my risotto recipe


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
