Today, I’m introducing a new word: fritterize.

As in, “the best way to use up leftover vegetables is to fritterize them.”

Bought a few too many carrots?

Green onions about to go bad?

Neighbors incessantly giving you zucchini?

Fritterize, fritterize, FRITTERIZE!

Alright, this is getting a bit out of hand, but I feel like I am *constantly* finding myself with stray veggies in my produce drawer and I’m really excited to find another way to use them up.
Other ways I’ve been rocking the leftover veggie issue lately:

Vegan fajitas, fried rice, veggie ribbon salad, Korean savory pancakes, and, of course the old stand-by of freezing them with some vague idea that maybe I’ll someday make soup.

I mentioned these carrot fritters a few days ago when I shared my recipe for Turkish Nut and Yogurt Dip. What I didn’t mention is that these carrot fritters are basically SCREAMING to be smeared with that dip. SO GOOD.

The fritters are light and fluffy on the inside with a super-satisfying crunchy exterior. The feta cheese melts into pockets of creamy goodness while the green onions add a little bite. I know you’re going to love them!
