What goes into the recipe
don’t forget to scroll to the recipe card for quantities and the full method
- rice flour- I love rice flour in fritters because not only is it gluten free, but it also helps to absorb the moisture from the zucchini and carrot and hold them together. It basically gives structural integrity to fritters, more so than any other type of flour.
- cheese- I've used grated tasty cheese because I buy it in a big block.
- dried dill- dill is what makes these fritters so yummy. It's such an underrated herb, but when used it something like these fritters it really comes into its own. I dry my own, because it's the one herb I manage to grow really well.
