  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 zucchini (large, spirialized)
  • 1 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1/2 cup pepper jack (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 1 jalapeno chilies (seeds removed + finely diced)
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • pizza sauce (for dipping)


  1. plug in your waffle iron to get it super hot-n-ready!
  2. in the bowl of your stand mixer, add the eggs. beat, on high, for 2 minutes.
  3. add flour + continue beating to combine. {about 1 minute}
  4. next, add zucchini, quinoa, both cheeses, jalapeno + seasoning to the egg mixture.
  5. beat, on medium, until fully combined + uniform consistency has been achieved.
  6. once the waffle iron is ready to go, spray it with nonstick cooking spray + use a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon to portion out the zucchini mixture. drop the dollop of mixture onto the waffle iron {my iron fit 4 dollops at a time} + close the waffle iron lid down!
  7. cook the fritters for 4 minutes + raise lid. they should be perfectly crisp around the edges, but add more time to suite your preferences/until they reach a golden brown!
  8. use a rubber spatula to easily lift the fritters up + out of the waffle iron. serve with pizza sauce for dipping + grated parmesan as garnish, if desired. enjoy!
