Zucchini and scallopZucchini Noodles with Scallops

This year I joined a local CSA and cannot believe it has taken me this long to get involved in one. So many of you ask how to shop and eat clean on a budget, and I highly recommend joining a local CSA to help with your shopping. For the money we spent for the 20 weeks, the amount of produce we get weekly is AMAZING. I am making all the fresh veggies with dinner. And lunch. And breakfast!

What is your favorite Summer dinner?

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.

Paleo Tomato Basil Veggie Fritters

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!
