These carrot and zucchini fritters are the perfect way to use fresh summer produce! Their unique flavor makes them hard to resist.

At this time every year, my produce drawers are overflowing with vegetables from my farm share. When we start getting tired of roasted vegetables and salads, I try to get a bit more creative.

These carrot and zucchini fritters are a delicious, unique way to get veggies onto my dinner table. My family doesn’t love roasted zucchini, but they’re happy to eat it in fritter form. While chocolate zucchini cake is probably their favorite way to eat it, it’s nice to have a savory option like this one, too.

It’s easy to prepare these fritters using a mixture of eggs and gluten-free flour as the binding agent. I like to include diced nuts for texture, but you can leave them out for a nut-free version if you’d prefer.

Carrot and zucchini fritters are made using a simple batter and farm fresh veggies.

You can substitute other grated vegetables in this recipe according to what you have on hand. Hard vegetables like turnips, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, and kohlrabi all work well. Use about a cup of grated vegetables along with the other ingredients to make these flavorful fritters.
