Tips for making these crispy roasted veggie fritters

This crispy and fluffy stack is just 30 minutes away. Here are some tips to get the best result:

  • Season the grated zucchini with salt and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then squeeze out all the liquid by pressing it in your hand. This way, you don’t get soggy fritters and they turn out perfectly fluffy.
  • Use the white and green parts of the scallions when chopping. The green part adds some extra flavour and is too precious to throw away. Also, we want to reduce food waste, right?
  • Freshly grate the nutmeg instead of using nutmeg powder. When it comes to flavour, it makes all the difference.
