Pan-fried zucchini, yellow squash, and carrot cakes, with golden crispy edges and tender insides. These make great dippers for toddlers to adults. You would never know that these nutritious fritters amount to eating your vegetables.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded yellow squash
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup corn muffin mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or more as needed
Directions
  1. 1. Toss zucchini, yellow squash, and carrots with salt in a colander and drain for 15 minutes. Wrap vegetables in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible; transfer mixture to a bowl.
  2. 2. Combine corn muffin mix, baking powder, and paprika in a bowl. Stir in vegetables and eggs until well mixed.
  3. 3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, tilting skillet to spread oil evenly. Drop tablespoonfuls of the zucchini batter into the hot oil, flattening each dollop with the back of a spoon. Pan-fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Cool slightly before serving.
