Crispy Zucchini Fritters

 Let me share with you a recipe for my families new favorite food. 

I made these Zucchini Fritters for the first time a few days ago and they were so good I have made them for dinner every night since. They are low calorie, low carb and packed with veggie goodness. Special K likes them so much I can barely get them to the table before she’s snatching them off the plate.

2 Large Zucchini, grated
1/2 Large Sweet Onion, grated
2 Carrots, grated
1 Tbsp of garlic (optional to use fresh grated garlic, 1 clove)
2 Tbsp of Lawry’s Season Salt
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
Enough coconut oil to simmer in a skillet

Start by putting your oil on to heat at medium temperature.
Mix all of the above together in a large bowl. I used a very small amount of Bread Crumbs since I was going for the low carb option.
Form the mixture into small patties and place in your skillet. Put them a little ways apart from each other to allow for spreading as they cook. Let them cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
Remove from pan once desired color is reached.

I served them with lemon herb yogurt on night one but they are just as good naked (as K called it)

Lemon Herb Sauce-

1/2 Cup Unflavored Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Italian Herb Blend

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

So simple, so quick and super tasty!

An Extremely Easy Recipe

Image

Every family has their own recipe for Beef Stroganoff. This is mine.
We have this about every other week. I usually try to space things out a bit more than that but the first time I made this The Hub put his foot down and demanded that we have this weekly. We compromised with every other. This is the one of the few recipes that Special K cleans her plate and asks for seconds on.

Beef Stroganoff 

1lb of Ground Beef- I use 93/7% but you can use what you want. You can also sub Turkey or Stew Beef.
1 Medium Onion, sliced and diced
2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Packet of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
1 Medium Size Daisy Sour Cream
1 Tbs Flour
1 Tbs Lawrys Season Salt
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Milk

Start by browning your meat in a large skillet. Once it’s done, drain it.
While your meat is draining, throw the onion in the Skillet. Stir them around with the Garlic Powder and let them caramelize*
While the onions are cooking and your beef is draining, mix the Soup Mix and Flour with 1 cup of water

Mix all the goodness together and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. The liquid will cook down a bit during this process.
Add your sour cream and give it a good stir. Add some salt to taste.

All Done!

I serve my Stroganoff over Egg Noodles and garnish with Parmesan Cheese.

Of course, you have to have your veggies with every meal and I am a firm believer that the only veg that should ever be served with Stroganoff is Green Beans.

“Beans, Beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you toot, the more you toot, the better you feel so let’s have beans for every meal! ”  K can’t resist singing the song.

That’s it. Enjoy!

Sadly, that is not my pic up there. We ate all of it before I had the presence of mind to take a pic. It was so good.
