Protein Packed Edamame Zucchini Fritters

Protein Packed Edamame Zucchini Fritters

I love my meatless Monday recipes – especially this one because it really pushed me to think outside the box to get my protein without “fake meat” or meat alternatives. I mixed up one of my favorite recipes, literally make zucchini fritters all the time, but this time added an ~edamame paste~ if you will. So yummy and so fun! And did you know that 1 cup of edamame has almost 20 grams of protein? Insane!!

1 zucchini, shredded

1 egg

1 cup edamame

1.5 tsp flour of choice

1 dollop of tzatziki

Seasonings: garlic powder, salt, pepper

The recipe:

Prep your zucchini by shredding and set aside.

Add your egg, edamame, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a blender and blend till there aren’t any chunks!

In a bowl combine your shredded zucchini and “edamame paste” to create a batter. And in a skillet on medium heat, drizzle a little bit of olive oil and scoop in even portions of your batter and cook till golden brown, then flip.

Top with a little bit of tzatziki (and I like to add a little bit of salt) and enjoy!! xx
