Vegan MoFo Day 7: zucchini fritters – Greek style

Zucchini fritters are a very popular dish here in Greece, especially during the summer. I don’t make them often as we avoid fried food at home, but it’s a very nice treat to have once in a while.

1 clove of garlic, minced
1 cup crumbled tofu
1 cup whole all purpose wheat flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Salt the zucchini and leave to drain in a colander for a couple of hours. Gently squeeze the excess water out of the zucchinis. Mix all ingredients in a big mixing bowl. Add more flour if the mixture is too wet. Form patties and fry them for a couple of minutes on each side. Serve with soy yoghurt or vegan tzatziki. Enjoy!
