A little background...

Gluten-Free Corn Fritters have always been a popular recipe on our website, so I wanted to create something similarly easy, crispy, warm and bread-y but switch up the flavor a bit.

These vegetable fritters use 3 vegetables — zucchini, carrots and corn — for a great flavor and it never hurts to get in  some extra veggies, right?

We love making fritters all year round and these 3 vegetables are ones we always have on hand. We use generally make these with frozen corn, and while zucchini is abundant in the summer, it is one of those vegetables we love year round.

So let’s make them!

All you need is:

gluten-free flour (we use GFJules – affiliate link)

corn (we almost always use frozen)

zucchini

carrot

1 egg

milk

green onions

garlic

baking powder

salt and pepper

Back to the Crispy Gluten-Free Vegetable Fritters...

The batter comes together in about 10-15 minutes.

The first thing to do is shred the zucchini and carrots. Grating the zucchini is always the first thing I do so that the zucchini can sit and release some of its water. You will want to gently squeeze out any excess water before adding to the batter as well.

Then all you do is:

  • mix together the flour and baking powder
  • add in the egg & milk
  • stir in the remaining ingredients – salt, pepper, garlic, corn, zucchini and carrots

You will notice that while I use my Kitchen Aid Mixer for just about everything, I mix this batter by hand and it works perfectly!

Once the batter is mixed together, you just cook them in hot olive oil for about 5 minutes each side.

The outside with be golden and crispy. You can even flip them back a second time to extra crisp.

And to keep crispy, we let them cool for a few minutes on a baking rack rather than just serving.  And paper towels underneath the rack absorb any excess oil.

The inside will be soft, light and fluffy.

And the flavor is savory and so tasty!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup gluten-free all purpose flour (with xanthan gum) we use GF Jules -- affiliate link
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • cup milk (we've used everything from skim milk to whole milk)
  • 1 large egg, lightly whisked
  • cup chopped green onions (white and dark parts)
  • ½ cup corn kernels we've use frozen, dethawed
  • ½ cup shredded carrot
  • ¾ cup shredded zucchini, lightly packed then water squeezed out
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic (1 clove)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt (plus an extra pinch or two)
  • olive oil for frying

Instructions

  • If you haven't already, grate the zucchini and let sit while you gather the rest of your ingredients. Then grate the carrots. Set both aside.
  • In a large bowl, use a large spoon to combine flour and baking powder. (note, this is a recipe I do by hand; I do not use a mixer)
  • Add egg and milk and mix to combine.
  • Gently squeeze zucchini to remove excess water. Then add salt, pepper, corn, carrots and grated zucchini to the batter and stir to combine.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat until shimmering (not burning). Drop batter in spoonfuls onto hot oil to make 5-6 fritters. Use a spoon to gently flatten a little and shape them as needed.
  • Cook approximately 4 minutes, flip and slightly flatten fritters with the back of the spatula. Cook another 5 minutes until golden on both sides. (you may need to re-flip and cook a minute or two to make the first side more golden as desired)
  • Serve as is or top with sour cream or yogurt and enjoy!
