A great way to use up the abundant zucchini in your garden. I freeze grated zucchini in 2 cup portions for winter Puffs!
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 cups shredded zucchini
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk baking mix
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- oil for frying
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, eggs, onion, and garlic. Blend in baking mix, salt and pepper.
Heat 1/2 inch of oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil, and fry until evenly brown and fluffy. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
