Zucchini Fritters For Healthy Kids

If you are struggling to get vegies into your child’s diet, this recipe is a great way to sneak them in.  Even fussy kids will enjoy these tasty fritters.


  • 2 zucchinis (courgettes), grated
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 leek, white part only finely sliced
  • 150gm feta, crumbled
  • 3 free-range eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup almond meal or wholemeal flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Olive oil or Coconut oil for shallow frying
  • Freshly cracked pepper and sea salt, to taste


  1. In a saucepan, sauté the leek for 5 minutes until cooked.
  2. Using a clean tea towel, squeeze the liquid from the zucchini, this helps the fritters to hold together.
  3. Combine the leek, zucchini, and carrot and add the beaten eggs and mix thoroughly.  Add the almond meal/flour, baking powder, salt and pepper and stir together.
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Add ¼ cup or spoonful’s of mixture into the pan and flatten with a spatula to form the fritter, cook 3 or 4 at once for until golden, turning the fritter to cook the other side.  Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Makes: 4 fritters
