  • Yield: 18 fritters
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 15 Minutes


  • 4 medium zucchini squash, about 2 lb (1 kg) in total
  • 10 large eggs
  • ½ small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, about 6 oz (170 g)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup marinara sauce, to serve
How to Make It
  1. Spread a dish towel over a large bowl, and grate the zucchini over the towel. Use the towel to squeeze the liquid from the grated zucchini, getting it as dry as possible.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until the yolks and whites are well combined. Add the onion, zucchini, mozzarella, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  3. In a large non-stick frying pan, heat 1⁄2 tbsp olive oil over high heat. Cook the fritters in batches, using a 1⁄3 -cup measure to scoop the batter into the hot pan. Cook until the bottoms begin to brown, about 2 minutes, then use a spatula to carefully flip the fritters and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat until the batter is gone, using 1⁄2 tbsp olive oil for each batch.
  4. To assemble the meals, divide the fritters evenly among 6 meal prep containers. Top each meal with 2 tbsp marinara sauce.
