Meatless Monday Recipe : Zucchini Fritters

I absolutely love these zucchini fritters! 1) Because they are sooo delicious and 2) because you only need five ingredients to make them!  Yup, you heard me, only 5 things to put these bad boys together.  Low ingredient recipes are perfect for those nights you want something homemade but without the effort of homemade.  As with all my meatless Monday recipes, these fritters are vegan and gluten free.

Meatless Monday Recipe : Zucchini Fritters

Makes 6 – 8 large zucchini fritters

Prep + cook in 60 mins

  • 2 small zucchinis
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/3 white onion
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 garlic gloves minced *optional

 

Meatless Monday Recipe : Zucchini Fritters

  1. Cook rice following instructions on package.  *I make the rice in advance and chill in fridge
  2. Preheat oven to 400′
  3. Cut up zucchini and white onion.
  4. Place all ingredients into the food processor and pulse.
  5. Divide into six equal balls and form into patties with your hands.
  6. Place on baking sheet and bake for 35 – 40 mins.  Longer if you want the outside crunchier.

*Note:  these have the consistency of crab cakes and can fall apart but are still delicious!

Holiday Recipe Roundup

My favorite thing about the holidays is spending time with my family that I don’t always get to see throughout the year.  My second favorite thing (and it’s a very close second) is eating without a care in the world.  For me, this only happens during the holiday season.  So today I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes!  There’s also some additional links at the bottom for things like leftover stuffing and more.  Take a look:

Healthy Super Bowl Appetizer : Buffalo Broccoli Bites Recipe

The Super Bowl is this weekend and for the first time ever I am prepared!  (lol)  I’ve been working on this recipe for a healthy Super Bowl appetizer (works great as a snack too!).  These Buffalo Broccoli Bites only take three ingredients!  That’s right, only three ingredients.  Ok so I’m not counting water, but does water really count as an ingredient?  Not only are they super delicious and melt-in-your-mouth but they are also meat-free and gluten-free!  Prep time is around 10 minutes and cooking time is an additional 16 minutes.  You can’t beat that!  The one thing I will say is that just like their normal wing counterparts, these buffalo broccoli bites do get a little messy but they’re so delicious, I promise they are worth it.

Healthy Super Bowl Appetizer - Buffalo Broccoli Bites Recipe

Buffalo Broccoli Bites Ingredients:

  • broccoli – one large head
  • 1/4 cup and 1/8 cup Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbs Frank’s Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce*

*Make sure you get the “wing’s” sauce and not the regular buffalo sauce

Healthy Super Bowl Appetizer - Buffalo Broccoli Bites Recipe

For a dipping sauce I just used hummus and sprinkled it with cayenne powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425′ and line a baking sheet with parchment
  2. Chop up your broccoli into wing sized pieces
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the egg replacer and water – whisk together
  4. In a second bowl, place the additional 1/8 cup of egg replacer – do not add water
  5. Add the buffalo sauce and whisk again – the mixture will start to foam
  6. Start to dip your broccoli cuts into the buffalo/egg replacer mixture and then dip into the second bowl with just egg replacer
  7. Place on the baking sheet, leaving space in between each broccoli bite
  8. Bake for 8 minutes, flip, and then bake an additional 8 minutes
  9. Add a healthy serving of additional buffalo sauce on top of the broccoli bites and serve!
