Make these great tasting fritters for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  They are delicious any time of day!  Serve with a dollop of sour cream and Salsa Fresca or just the Salsa. Avocado slices are also a good accompaniment. A fried or poached egg on the side makes it a meal.

About ½ pound small zucchini squash
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup red onion, minced
½ cup flour, spelt works well
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup flat leaf parsley, minced

STEPS:

  1. Grate the zucchini into a medium size bowl.
  2. Add the egg, onion, half of the flour, salt, pepper, and the parsley.
  3. Mix together with a fork.  Add more flour as needed so the mixture holds together.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet.
  5. Drop the fritter batter by the tablespoons full into the skillet.
  6. Sauté until browned on one side, turn over and repeat. (The total cooking time is about 5 minutes.)
