Quinoa + Zucchini Pizza Fritters

This recipe has a lot of cool things going on -- this was my first time using my new waffle iron, the zucchini came from my parent's garden (and there's an over abundance of it), and the spiralizer which is my favorite kitchen tool.

Don't let all of the kitchen tools intimidate you, this recipe was very easy to make and the ingredients are all simple. I thought this was a really fun recipe to prepare for a weeknight dinner and a pretty light summer recipe.

Recipe from Kelly's Ambitious Kitchen.

-2 eggs
-1/3 cup flour
-1 large zucchini, spirialized
-1 cup quinoa, cooked
-1/2 cup pepperjack cheese, shredded
-1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
-1 teaspoons italian seasoning
-pizza sauce, for dipping

Plug in your waffle iron to get it hot and ready to make the pizza fritters. In a large bowl add the eggs and beat until frothy. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Add zucchini, quinoa, both cheeses, and seasoning to the egg mixture. Combine fully, it might be easiest to use your hands.

Once the mixture is ready, spray the waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray. The rest takes a little bit of guessing, each square of my waffle iron fit about 2-3 dollops of the zucchini mixture, yours may fit more or less.

Cook the fritters for 4 minutes and raise lid to see if they're cooked, they should be perfectly crisp around the edges.  Add more time until they reach a golden brown.  Use a rubber spatula to easily lift the fritters up  and out of the waffle iron.

Serve your fritters with pizza sauce for dipping.
