  • Air Fryer (optional)


  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cassava flour
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (If using Air Fryer, you do not need this ingredient)


  • Shred your zucchini using a food processor or cheese grater.
  • Using your hands, squeeze out as much water from the shredded zucchini as you can.
  • Place the shredded zucchini on a paper towel. Sprinkle it with salt, and then place another paper towel on top. Allow it to rest for about 15 minutes.
  • Once the zucchini has rested, remove the zucchini from the paper towels and place in a large bowl. Add in the eggs and cassava flour, and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and turn up to medium-high heat. Once the oil has heated, add a scoop of the zucchini mixture to the oil. It should bubble around the edges if the oil is hot enough. If using the Air Fryer, line the Air Fryer with parchment paper and add scoops of the zucchini mixture. Using a fork, press it down flat.
  • Press the fritter down flat using a spatula or fork so that it has a thinner and wider shape. Allow the fritter to cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the edges are golden and crispy. Then flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes, and remove when golden brown. If using the Air Fryer, cook at 370°F for abut 15 minutes. You should not have to flip the fritters.
  • Remove the fritters from the oil and set on a paper towel to remove any excess oil. Serve with your favorite dip, veggies, or as is. If using the Air Fryer, eat when cooled.
