Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 cup red onion chopped
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 4 tbsp medium-sized zucchinis grated
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup black olives chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese grated
  • 4 eggs separated

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic and onions until the onions begin to look translucent.
  • Add in the herbs and cook for another few minutes. Then add in the zucchini and lower the heat. Cook for another 5 minutes. 
  • Add in the herbs and cook for another few minutes. Then add in the zucchini and lower the heat. Cook for another 5 minutes. 
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour and Parmesan cheese.
  • Stir the flour and cheese combination into the zucchini mixture. Then whisk the egg yolks and add them to the mixture. Afterward, beat the egg whites until they stiffen and fold them into the mixture. 
  • Stir this into the zucchini mixture. Whisk the egg yolks and add them to the mixture. Then, beat the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the mixture. 
  • Heat a skillet and pour in some oil for cooking. When the oil begins to sizzle, pour the batter into the skillet like you would with pancake batter. 
  • From here, you can work the fritters much like pancakes. Carefully flip them over when they begin to brown, but don't allow them to burn.
  • Between each fritter set, inspect the pan to make sure there is enough oil so that you do not burn the next set. Once you're done cooking, serve the hash browns with fresh tomatoes or salsa. Enjoy!
