Vegetable Fritter Ingredients

  • Vegetables – use fresh zucchini and bell peppers (capsicum), not frozen
  • Onion – adds flavor
  • Eggs – use large free-range eggs.
  • Flour – use all-purpose flour or see our substation tips below.
  • Cheese – use cheddar or mozzarella.
  • Oil – use olive or any other neutral oil suitable for frying at higher temperatures like canola, peanut, sunflower, or corn oil.


Don’t make your oil too hot, otherwise, the fritters will brown too quickly before it’s cooked through. Use a thermometer to heat the oil to about 350°F.

If the fritters are falling apart or becoming too soggy, it might be because they have too much water.

To make perfect, equally-sized fritters, use a large ice cream scoop to drop the fritter batter in the hot pan.

You can use any other cheeses like feta, cheddar, cream cheese, or even ricotta.

You can use any zucchini for this recipe – green and yellow.

To make these fritters gluten-free, you can use almond flour or any gluten-free flour blend.

If using vegetables that have a high water content (like mushrooms or spinach), it’s best to sauté them first, then squeeze out excess moisture before using.

How to Store Vegetable Fritters

The fritters can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Just make sure to store it in an airtight container, and line it with paper towels to absorb excess moisture.

Reheat the fritters in the oven (or Airfryer) to make them crispy again.

What To Serve With Vegetable Fritters

Serve the Vegetable Fritters with sour cream, sweet chili sauce, or ranch dressing. Or a healthier dipping alternative, try Greek yogurt. Eat them as an appetizer, or serve them as a side.
