Zucchini fitters with lemon yogurt

Happy Hump Day! 🙂 I know I haven’t been posting to many recipes these days, but I have been extremely busy with my day job. 😉 I will try to keep getting out one or two posts a week. I never liked zucchini as a kid, but it has definitely grown on me. It’s so versatile, you can make pasta with it, grate it into any recipe, even sneak it into muffins. 😉 These little fritters are the perfect addition to any meal, I served mine over a bed of quinoa. They taste fresh and light and delicious. They would be perfect to serve as a side at a bbq. I hope you all are having a great summer so far. If you have any recipes you would like to see me post, please leave a comment below.
