Directions

In a large bowl, combine the shredded butternut squash, flour, eggs, minced sage, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to the bowl, stirring until the mixture is combined. Line a plate with paper towels. Liberally coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with vegetable oil and place it over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of the mixture into the pan, pressing them lightly into rounds and spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip them once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt. Repeat the scooping and cooking process with the remaining mixture.

Note: 

Butternut squash can be peeled and then shredded on either the large hole of a box grater or, to save time, in a food processor.

Healthy Ingredients

Eating certain foods that are high in antioxidants, notably vitamin A, can promote healthy eyesight. It’s a natural way to help prevent cataracts, which cause cloudy vision, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which destroys central vision; both are leading causes of vision loss among older adults. Brightly-colored vegetables like butternut squash are loaded with antioxidants to help prevent eye conditions and diseases that can steal your sight as you age.
