So excited for you to try these Crispy Gluten-Free Vegetable Fritters!
Crisp on the outside, irresistibly light & fluffy on the inside, packed with vegetables and so flavorful… they are everything you want in a Gluten-Free Vegetable Fritter!
And it satisfies that craving for something savory, warm and bready.
Best part? It is an easy gluten-free recipe and comes together in 25 minutes beginning to end!
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)
salt and pepper
As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules. To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here.

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!
Enjoy as is or top with tangy sour cream or yogurt for the perfect finishing touch.
Hope you love them!

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!
