zucchini & corn fritters

I love these zucchini fritters, the sweetness of the corn and the crunch of the quinoa with the nuttiness of the parmesan … heavenly…..with Fish, Chicken or a simple Green Salad! The original recipe I morphed from The Scrumptious Pumpkin to her credit all I did was add the corn and the Sous Salt
