Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters

Trying to sort out the pantry and minimize the insane food clutter has been a nightmare.  I mean I have a giant container filled with all purpose flour, I don’t even eat gluten any more!  When you give up gluten its best to make sure you are running low on flour, pasta and all those gluteny things! Or you will just have a cupboard overflowing with stuff you no longer eat.  I can also not throw it away, people are starving out there! I cant throw away food people could eat.  I’m going to have to give it to someone so I don’t feel like a horrible person.

This pantry hell, has really made me try and use up the stuff in there. Well all the gluten free goodness up in the house and that’s how chickpea flour zucchini fritters were born!  I’m so glad! I could shed a tear, from complete happiness that’s how delicious these are.  Its like heaven on your tongue with side notes of pure comfort food.  Big jersey, sweatpants kind of comfort..  The chickpea flour adds something special to these delicious fried treats and the dill adds just the perfect dance of flavour on your taste buds!
