Zucchini fritters with pesto

This is a nice recipe- very simple. You can find it online in many places.

1 lb zucchini, grated
3/4 C flour
1 egg, separated
1 T olive oil
salt and pepper

Pesto- either home made or bought.

Put the grated zucchini in a sieve and sprinkle with plenty of salt. Leave for 1 hour, then rinse thoroughly. Dry well. OR put the grated zucchini in a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess water.

Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the enter, then add the egg yolk and oil. Measure out 5 T water and add a little to the bowl.

Whisk the egg yolk and oil, gradually incorporating the flour and water to make a smooth batter. Season and leave for 30 minutes (I don't do this step)

Stir the zucchini into the batter. Whisk the egg white until stiff, then fold into the batter.

Fry the fritters in oil until golden brown.

Serve with pesto.

**This isn't my favorite zucchini fritter recipe, but it is simple to make in a pinch.
