Fruits and Veggies Monday - Squash Fritters

Hello Everyone! I always look forward to monday, because it’s a challenge that is close to my heart, #fruitsandveggiesmonday by @lenasveganliving. Thank you again @lenasveganliving and @plantstoplanks

This recipe I will share with you today is a popular snack, side dish or appetizer from my country, Philippines. We called it Okoy or fritters in english. This delicious recipe consist of squash, additionally you can also add other vegetables you like. It is deep fried in oil and goes very well with a vinegar dipping sauce. It is as well very tasty even without the sauce. 


The flavor of this recipe is mild sweet, It’s crispy on the outside and soft inside. It's easy to make too. So if you’re looking for something other than pumpkin soup or pumpkin pie, you can try this tasty recipe and you will be amazed.

I'm always hesitant to make fritters as I'm afraid they'll fall apart, but these look great! I think I need to get over my fear and just practice because it is a really yummy way to eat your veggies. :)
