  1. Place the grated zucchini in a colander over the sink. Sprinkle some salt and gently toss to combine; let sit for 10 minutes. Using a clean dish towel or sheets of absorbent paper, pat dry the zucchini to remove any excess moisture.
  2. Place the almond flour in a medium bowl, get rid of any lumps, and combine with the ground flaxseeds. Add salt and mix.
  3. Place drained zucchini, grated broccoli stalks and sliced leek in a large bowl, and add the dry ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Whisk 4 eggs and set aside.
  5. Finely chop the fresh herbs and add to the eggs. Whisk again and pour over the vegetables/flour blend. Let stand for 20-30 minutes.
  6. Heat some oil in a small cast iron pan over medium heat. Add some oil and let it warm. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the mixture and cook for 6-8 min/ side, or until golden brown.
  7. Check the consistency of the fritter and if you think it needs more moisture, whisk another egg and add to the mixture.
  8. Repeat step 6 with the remaining mixture until you use it all.
  9. Serve fritters warm, topped with tzatziki or a big dollop greek yogurt with chopped chives or dill.

What are the benefits of this dish?

Zucchini (courgette) is a wonderful addition to any diet.

If the taste is not what drives you to make it a staple of your diet, maybe knowing its benefits and versatility would.

The water and fiber content of zucchini makes this hydrating vegetable a go-to option for natural constipation relief.

Zucchini also offers important anti-inflammatory protection – as you may know, inflammation is one of the primary drivers of IBS and intestinal permeability (aka #eaky gut). Eating an anti-inflammatory diet should be the first step towards lowering systemic inflammation in the body and gut-related conditions.

As a bonus, zucchini is pretty low in calories and sugar, making it a staple of low carb & weight-loss diets.

If zucchini fritters are not your thing, know that you can enjoy zucchini roasted, grilled, sauteed, steamed, baked (in bread), or even raw! Did you know that you can even add it raw to a smoothie? Add a piece the next time you are fixing yourself a green one.💚

You may also use zucchini (in place of pasta) as zoodles (courgetti), coated with avocado mash and topped with (roasted) cherry tomatoes for an out-of-this-world teat.

Use caution if you suffer from an autoimmune condition, as zucchinis are part of the nightshade family of vegetables that may aggravate your condition.
