  1. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, chickpeas, corn, eggs, almond meal, parsley, salt, pepper, turmeric, and cumin.
  2. Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Using a 2-tablespoon scoop, portion fritters into pan, cooking for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together sriracha and yogurt. Serve with fritters.

Chef Tips

If you don’t have sriracha on hand, you can also substitute a teaspoon or two of your favorite hot sauce.

For a less-spicy sauce: Decrease the amount of sriracha added to the yogurt. Try adding a ½ tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired level of heat. Alternatively, these fritters can be paired with plain yogurt, pesto, or a dipping sauce of your choice.
