These fritters are full of green goodness and are perfect for a weekend café-style brunch when you have got a little more time on your hands. Zucchinis are currently in season and are a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin A and vitamin C. Swapping out regular white flour for wholemeal boosts the overall fibre content of the dish, a nutrient which is fundamental for good digestion. Serving your pan-fried fritters with a gooey soft boiled egg adds a great hit of protein to the dish, leaving you with a well-balanced brunch that will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

Zucchini-Herb Fritters & Soft Boiled Eggs

Category Breakfast
Serves 4 people
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 6 eggs
  • 2 large zucchinis
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tbsp dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium avocado, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


1. Place four eggs in a saucepan of cold water. Place pan over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Boil eggs for 5 minutes and then use a large slotted spoon to remove eggs from saucepan. Cool boiled eggs under running water and then peel, set aside and cut into halves.

2. Meanwhile, grate zucchini and then wrap the grated zucchini in a clean tea towel or muslin cloth, squeeze tightly to ring out all excess water. Place in a colander and set aside.

3. Place wholemeal flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and skim milk. Whisk to form a smooth batter. Add in half the spring onion, garlic, dill, parsley and grated zucchini. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

4. Heat oil in a medium frying pan. Add large spoonfuls of the mixture to the pan and cook for 3 minutes each side, or until fritters are browned and cooked through on both sides. Remove fritters from pan and repeat with remaining batter, making 8 fritters in total.

5. To prepare the avocado salsa, combine the remaining spring onion, avocado and lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix to combine and season with salt and pepper.

6. To serve, place two fritters on each plate, top with a boiled egg and serve with avocado salsa on the side.
