I simply decided that I just COULDN'T leave you hanging.
Y'all are being so patient with me as I get used to the whole "blog my life" thing, that I figured I owed it to ya :) So without any further ado, here are my awesometastic yellow*squash*fritters
adapted from thisprimallife.com
serves 2-4 [the engineer and I each had 2]
-3 yellow squash
-1/4 to 1/2 cup flour [ it will really depend on how quick your batter gets thick when you add it; mine was just shy of a half cup]
-1 clove of minced garlic
-1 tbsp. dried parsley
-chili powder and cayenne pepper, to taste
-salt&pepper, to taste
-olive oil spray or extra virgin olive oil, for coating the pan
|stuff yous need.|
1.grate the squash into a bowl and toss with salt. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to draw out moisture. THIS IS IMPORTANT, lovelies! You don't want soggy fritters, trust me.
|grate, grate, grate!|
3. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, egg, flour, salt&pepper, parsley, cayenne, and chili powder.
4. Combine the squash with the egg mixture and mix well.
5. Now this is where you can get creative. Because we were having this for a main dish, I made four large fritters.
|the beginnings of wonder. for real.|
ou can totes make mini ones - like if you're entertaining!
Or make one BIG one!...whatever floats your boat.
...anyways. In a preheated skillet [coated with spray or oil] place your fritters gently into the pan. Depending on the size, you will need to cook anywhere from 1-3 minutes per side [unless you're going mad and decide to make one large one, and then all I can say is ..... good luck].
...I also want to note that these are great topped with tzaziki, and a little bit of sriacha sauce. NOM times a million. You will love these, I promise!
...Wait!! What's that??
"Alicia, these sound so good! But alas, I don't have any yellow squash - what to do!?!?!"
Fear not lovelies, sub in whatever you have.
...get creative :)
