Zucchini Basil Fritters

12-16 fritters, depending on your scoop size
Zucchini Basil Fritters recipe from Bad Manners
1 ½ cups shredded zucchini, about 1 regular sized zucchini
½ cup chopped white onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
¾ cup chickpea flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup vegetable broth or water

In a medium bowl mix together the zucchini, onion, garlic, and fresh basil until everything is well distributed. Sprinkle over the ground flax seed and mix again.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir this mixture into the zucchini until most of the veggies look covered in flour. Now slowly pour in the broth, stirring while you go, just until everything looks moist and is sticking together. You want to get a little bit of a batter going without adding too much liquid which could make your fritters a little soggy. You probably won’t need the whole ½ a cup so pour out a little at a time.

When you’re ready to get cooking, warm up a skillet or large sauté pan over a medium-high heat. You wanna cook these fuckers just like pancakes. Once the pan is hot, spray a little oil on it and scoop one large spoonful of the batter onto the pan. Spread it out a little bit with the back of the spoon so that you don’t end up with a thick ass fritter. Cook until the bottom begins to brown and a few bubbles pop through the center, about 2 minutes. Flip and repeat until the fritters are brown and crispy on both sides. Serve hot.

Tahini Sauce

Every holiday season someone brings a dry ass veggie platter with ranch to an office party. Sad. But you'd never bring that to a party.


Grilled Romaine Salad

Burgers are so bland that’s why you basically gotta dress that shit up with a salad after you grill it. CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MEAT AND JUST GRILL A SALAD.
