These veggie fritters make a quick, easy and relatively healthy lunch or snack. I made these up in a jiffy today and they were delicious. My zucchini plants are going crazy, so I thought I would pick some of the new little zucchinis and use them for lunch. The recipe calls for roughly two cups of finely grated carrot and zucchini, but you could really use any vegetable you fancy. They would be especially good with some corn kernels.  Also, if you haven’t found a gluten free flour you like, I find the Aldi brand to be excellent as well a economical.
