Ingredients:
  • 1 medium sized zucchini.
  • 4 carrots.
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds.
  • 1/2 cup of corn flour.
  • 1 table spoon olive oil.
  • 2 teaspoons of dried or fresh herbs (I used oregano and basil, but thyme would also work).
  • 1 teaspoon of basil.
  • salt and pepper to taste.


  • Directions:
  • Preheat oven at 200°C.
  • Grate zucchini and add salt. Let it sit for some 10 minutes. Meanwhile put chia seeds into the cup and pour over hot water.
  • The chia will act as an egg in the recipe. Squeeze the zucchini to get an excess liquid out of it.
  • Transfer zucchini into a bowl and add grated carrots and the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. If you are having troubles mixing in the flour properly, add some water or rice milk.
  • Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper. Drop spoons of the mixture leaving some space between each one. Bake the fritters for 10 minutes, flip them and bake for 10 more minutes.
  • Serve with salad or some fresh vegetables.
  • Tip: If you do not have chia, you can also use flax seeds in the same way.
