Summer’s favorite vegetable got a crispy upgrade. These gluten-free zucchini fritters are a great way to use the all-star vegetable for a quick snack or appetizer. Loaded with onion and parmesan cheese, they’re crispy on the outside but tender when you take a bite. It’s surprisingly easy to whip these up and let them cook in the air fryer, rather than in a pan of hot oil. (Bonus: This is a much healthier way of making them too because you use way less oil. Talk about a win!)

We whipped up a yogurt dill sauce, too, for a refreshing drizzle or dunk alongside the fritters. (It’s also delicious as part of a crudite or as an easy salad dressing.) You’ll probably forget you’re even eating vegetables, making air fryer zucchini fritters ultra kid-friendly to boot.

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • green onions

Yogurt Dill Sauce

  • 2 tbsp chives, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Make the yogurt sauce by whisking together all ingredients in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Grate the zucchini and place in a colander with a pinch of salt. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Use a cheesecloth or kitchen towel to wring out the zucchini, getting rid of as much liquid as possible. Once drained, place into a large bowl.
  • Add the rest of the fritter ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Scoop ⅓ cup of the fritter mixture and form a little patty. Place on the air fryer sheet. Repeat with the rest of the fritters. You may have to do 2 batches.
  • Cook in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then raise the temperature to 425 degrees and cook for two more minutes for that final crisp.
  • Serve with the yogurt dill sauce and fresh green onions and enjoy!
