The garden is producing veggies by the armful and this most frequently means zucchini and squash. I've been trying to find new recipes in which to use these wonderful fresh veggies and will start sharing them with you here on the The Simple Gourmand.
First, let's talk fritters. To be honest, I had never made them before embarking on this venture, but who doesn't love fried veggies? The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it with either zucchini or squash. You can also alter the herbs to your liking. I used oregano because it is taking over my garden and needs some taming - well, that, and I thought it would be a nice with the zucchini and parmesan. It turned out well, but you could also try mint, basil, or thyme in place of, or in addition to, the oregano.
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
