  1. 2 zucchini, coarsely grated
  2. 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
  3. 1/2 cup dried whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  4. 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  5. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  6. 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  7. salt and pepper to taste
  8. 2 tablespoons canola oil
Instructions
  1. Put all of the grated zucchini in a colander and squeeze out as much liquid as you can with your hands.
  2. Then wrap the zucchini in a kitchen towel and squeeze again.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the zucchini with the corn, breadcrumbs, onion, egg, oregano, and salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot.
  5. Scooping up 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture each time, pour it into the skillet and press on it to form a patty.
  6. Cook the patties until browned on both sides.
  7. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
Notes
  1. Handle fritters with care when flipping - they can break apart easily.
