Tomato Basil Veggie Fritters with Spicy Tomato Sauce

These fritters make me happy. They are packed with zucchini, sweet potato, basil, tomato, and tons of flavor — and are so beyond delicious! Top them off with a dollop of your favorite topping, like my Spicy Tomato Basil Sauce, and be prepared for them to fly off the plate.

When Tuttorosso asked me to collaborate for their Inspiralize the Spring campaign with five other fantastic bloggers and create a spiralized side dish, I knew just want I wanted to make. See, I love making spiralized dinners, and even breakfast bakes using spiralized veggies, but I never make my side dishes spiralized! 

Everyone who tried these fritters could not get enough of them! They are the perfect addition to any meal. 

 Here’s the invite so you can follow along with our Spiralized Virtual Dinner Party


Crispy, veggie-packed, flavorful fritters. Let’s do it!

  • In a separate bowl whisk together eggs and tapioca
  • Add in chopped basil and pour mixture into veggie bowl
  • Mix until veggies are coated

  • Drop a large spoonful of mixture into the pan and repeat until pan has 3 or so mixtures spread out*
  • Let cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or so, then flip and do the same on the other side

  • While cooking place all sauce ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth
  • Serve immediately with sauce*
  • Recipe Notes

  • *Make sure mixture has the egg batter on top when pouring into the pan. You can always pour a drop extra on top of the fritter before flipping
  • **If you want the fritters crispier, place wire baking rack on a baking sheet and broil on high for 4-5 minutes on each side
