  • In a food processor with your shredder attachment, shred the zucchini. Alternatively, you can use a handheld shredder. Using a cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer, squeeze any excess liquid out of the zucchini.
  • Transfer the zucchini into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the cooking oil. Mix together until you have a uniform batter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Heat oil over medium heat in a large nonstick sauté pan. Once the oil is hot, scoop fritter batter, ¼ cup at a time, onto the hot oil and flatten into a fritter that is about 3" around. Sauté for 3-4 minutes per side, until edges are crispy brown and the zucchini is cooked all the way through. Repeat until all the batter is used.
  • Serve immediately with vegan sour cream and extra green onions. Serve with soup or salad.
