These Zucchini Patties are the perfect find!
It’s always a double win for me when I found a veggie dish my kids can enjoy, as well. I’m sure a lot of Moms feel the same way.
Do not fret however, on how to make these zucchini patties – they will take only about a half hour to make and the preparation is super easy!
The most important part is, after you have grated the zucchinis and sprinkled them with a teaspoon of sea salt, you need to rinse them well under running water. This way you remove the excess salt, otherwise your patties will taste too salty – nobody wants that!
Another important thing is, right after rinsing the patties, you need to squeeze out the excess water from the grated and salted zucchinis. You can remove the excess water with your clean hands, or with the help of a cheesecloth. If you skip this step, your zucchini patties will end up soggy and not firm.
let’s get these patties started:
You will need:
3 mediud-size Zucchinis, grated
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup of all -purpose Flour (if you want to make these patties Paleo-friendly you can use coconut flour, tastes delcious too!)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
Avocado, Coconut Oil or Olive Oil for frying
Place grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with a tsp of sea salt.
Let salted zucchinis sit for 10 minutes! This is very important!
After 10 minutes rinse zucchini to remove excess salt.
Now, with your clean hands or with a cheesecloth drain the excess water from the zucchinis by squeezing them!
Add flour, sea slat and pepper to zucchini mixture and mix well.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
With the help of a tablespoon, scoop zucchini mixture into the skillet and gently flatten batter with the backside of the spoon.
Flip patties when edges start turning golden brown, usually around 2 minutes on each side.
