When making fritters, you’ll need a thickening agent. For this recipe, we used almond flour to make the fritters hold together.

All we can say is this: they are flavored with spring onion, mint, and parsley.

How to Cook Almond Zucchini Fritters

  2. Add the green peas, spring onion, salt and pepper by taste, lemon zest, eggs, mint leaves, parsley, and almond flour. Stir with a spoon to combine everything. If it’s necessary, add more almond flour to make sure the mixture holds together well.
