These cheddar zucchini fritters are a delicious veggie filled snack or appetizer to prep for the week! They’re so flavorful, gluten-free, and served with a delicious 4-ingredient za’atar yogurt dip!
Cheddar Zucchini Fritters
I grabbed zucchini this week hoping to bake something with it since I got quite a few requests for a chocolate zucchini bread recipe. Turns out I’ve been craving all thing savory this week, and these cheddar zucchini fritters did not disappoint!
They’re a simple veggie side dish to conveniently have on hand when you want something light and healthy, and pair so well with the za’atar yogurt dip.
You can make these dairy-free by substituting a vegan cheese, and can even double the batch and freeze some for later use.
Step up your snack game
Whether you’re personally looking for new ways to eat more veggies, or are trying to get someone in the family to eat more nutritiously, veggie fritters are the perfect way to sneak in some greens.
They’re lightly seasoned, have a little protein from the eggs and cheese, and can be flavored in so many different ways. You seriously can’t go wrong with them.
These cheddar zucchini fritters are baked and not fried, so they’re quick to whip up and stay fresh in the fridge all week (if they’ll last that long!)
The za’atar yogurt dip truly elevates these fritters. It’s made with only 4 ingredients, but adds the best flavor and creamy texture. It’s similar to labneh, which is a Middle Eastern strained yogurt thats a little thicker than Greek yogurt.
If you have some leftover yogurt dip or wanted to double the batch, this dip would be delicious with so many other things!
Other ways to serve your za’atar yogurt dip
- as a dip with your favorite sliced veggies
- spread onto a wrap or sandwich
- served with fresh, warm pita or sourdough
- served alongside shakshuka!
