Fried Zucchini Bits

Summer is in full blast here at Knaughty Farms, which means lots of yummy foods. As many of my friends and family know, I do not have a green thumb what-so-ever, if I keep a plant alive it is something close to a miracle. My husband is a farmer and is a darn good one (thank goodness), he keeps all my plants alive and thriving. He comes by it naturally, between him and my father-in-law, they are hard workers and supply me and my girls as well as my sister and mother in-law with a healthy amount of home grown foods! The things they don’t grow, because we do have a farm and are very diversified which means they are busy enough, I buy locally from a few AMAZING produce stands here in Glenn, CA! 


This is a recipe that is a new hit in our house. Try it and let me know what you think. They are a great side with any dinner! 

Fried Zucchini Bits

2 lbs - Zucchini (about 2 large or 5 small)

1tsp - Salt 

2 - Eggs

1 Cup - Green Onions

1 cup - Flour

1 tsp - baking powder

1/2 tsp- Pepper 

1/2 tsp - Salt

Knaughty Farms Olive Oil for Frying

Sour Cream to Serve 

Ketchup to Serve



1. Wash zucchini and trim off ends. Grate on large holes of a food processor or a box grater.  Place zucchini in a large bowl and mix in 1 tsp salt.  (That will help draw out the water)

2.  After 10 minutes, put the zucchini in a cheese cloth and squeeze out all the extra water.  It is quite impressive as to how much water comes out! :-) After it shrinks down you should end up with about 3 1/2 to 4 cups of squeezed dry zucchini.  Transfer to a large bowl!

3. Add 1 cup chopped Green Onions and 2 lightly beaten eggs.

4. Add Flour, baking powder salt and pepper to the zucchini mixture and stir until well combined.

5. Place non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a healthy amount of Knaughty Farms Olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add a heaping tablespoon at a time and flatten out the tops slightly to make them pancake shaped.  Cook for 3-5 minutes per side in the olive oil, adding more if needed until they are crispy on both sides. 

6. Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream or ketchup is always a big hit in our house.
