Zucchini Fritters with Cucumber Salad

I absolutely love dinners that are super fresh tasting and bursting with so many delicious flavours. This is one of those meals that the kids keep requesting. If you have a food processor, this will make your life easier otherwise get the kids to help grate the zucchini with you!

1. Squeeze as much excess water from zucchini as you can and sprinkle some salt. 

2. Add zucchini into a bowl with the other ingredients chia eggs, onions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, stirring the mixture until well combined. Line a plate with paper towels.

3. Add the olive oil to your frying pan and once oil is hot, scoop 3-tablespoons of the zucchini mixture into the pan, pressing them lightly into rounds and spacing them at least 2 inches apart.

4. Cook the zucchini fritters for 2-3 minutes, then flip them once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout.
