Quinoa Zucchini Dill Fritters

These little fritters are loaded with flavor and smile-friendly ingredients! Hot or cold, serve the savory patties as an appetizer, a quick snack, or crumbled over a salad. They’re even easy to take on the go! 


  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 ½ cups zucchini, grated

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup feta cheese

  • ¼ cup fresh dill, plus extra for garnish

  • 1 small red onion

  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • ⅓ cup olive oil


  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions; set aside to cool.
  2. Place grated zucchini in a bowl and sprinkle with cooking salt. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes. Squeeze water out of the zucchini, then pat with a thin towel (not a paper towel) to soak up any extra water.
  3. Whisk eggs in another bowl. Add cooked quinoa, feta, zucchini, dill, onion, and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Combine well.
  4. Form mixture into patties not more than 1-inch thick.
  5. Heat oil in sauce pan until it starts to smoke. Add fritters, pressing each one with a spatula to flatten. Cook for about 4 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Garnish with extra dill.
  7. Enjoy!
