Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 fritters

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup zucchini 2-3 medium zucchinis, grated
  • 1 cup of kale finely chopped
  • 2 eggs pasture-rasied preferably
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons almond flour I suggest Wellbee's
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons of avocado oil for pan or oil of choice, ghee, etc

Sriracha Sour Cream:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or more to taste
  • optional: 2-3 tablespoons green onion chopped

Instructions

  1. To make the cashew sour cream soak your cashews in hot water for 15 minutes, then drain.
  2. Add the soaked cashews, along with the apple cider vinegar, salt and sriracha into a high speed blender. Blend on high for 1 minute. If it's too thick add 1 tablespoon of water at a time, only adding enough to get the mixture to blend until smooth.
  3. Scrape the sour cream out into a bowl and set in the fridge until serving.
  4. Grate your zucchinis and place the shreds in a colander. If you wish you can sprinkle the shreds with a bit of salt to get them to release more water.
  5. Let the zucchini shreds sit more a few minutes, then place them into a clean dish cloth and squeeze out all the excess water.
  6. Place the dry zucchini in a bowl, and add the chopped kale, eggs, almond flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  7. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  8. Place about 2 tablespoons of batter (it will be thick with all the veggies so you can form the fritters with your hands) into the hot pan.
  9. Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Place the cooked fritters on drying rack or paper towel while you cook the additional fritters.
  10. Serve with sriracha sour cream and chopped green onion, enjoy!
