Zucchini Fritters Recipe with Scallions | Vegetarian, Easy Side Dish

Zucchini-Scallion Cakes

Yield: Makes 15 small cakes

This zucchini fritters recipe combines zucchini and scallions with flour to create delicious cakes that can be topped with Greek yogurt or aioli.


  • 1 medium zucchini, grated ( about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)


  1. Combine the zucchini, scallions, flour, sugar, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Toss to combine. Add the egg, lemon juice, and zest and stir until well incorporated.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter (you can use more olive oil if keeping this recipe dairy-free) in a large cast iron skillet. Once the butter is melted and the oil is fairly hot, drop in the zucchini mixture in tablespoonfuls, making sure not to crowd the pan (about 5 at a time). Cook for about 1 minute on each side until browned and semi-firm. Remove to a paper towel to drain and repeat with the remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil as necessary. NOTE: this can be done a day in advance. Simply reheat the cakes in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Serve with herbed Greek yogurt or aioli
