Directions

  1. Toss zucchini, yellow squash, and carrots with salt in a colander and drain for 15 minutes. Wrap vegetables in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible; transfer mixture to a bowl.
  2. Combine corn muffin mix, baking powder, and paprika in a bowl. Stir in vegetables and eggs until well mixed.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, tilting skillet to spread oil evenly. Drop tablespoonfuls of the zucchini batter into the hot oil, flattening each dollop with the back of a spoon. Pan-fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Cool slightly before serving.

Very good and healthy! I just used 1/2 cup of corn meal, and added a few dashes of onion powder and 2 Tb of parmesan cheese. Make sure to drain on paper towels before cooking.

These were tasty, but next time I'll add more veggies and some spice.... I wanted a little kick to these

Pretty good. I plan on playing with the spices a bit next time. I drained the zucchini by placing it in a colander first and pushing my metal mixing bowl down onto it. I then placed the mixture in a kitchen towel and folded it over, pushed a glass pie plate on top which allowed me to see how much water was being pushed out based on how wet the towel got. I am glad I did the colander first because I could have easily gone through a couple towels.
