A few ingredients and about 15 minutes is all you need for this quick lunch or snack idea.
Servings 9 nuggets
- ½ c. Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ tsp. Garlic powder
- ½ cup flour
- 2 zucchini’s shredded
- 1 egg
- 3 tbs olive oil or vegetable oil
Grate or shred your zucchini and remove excess moisture. You can either sprinkle some salt on it to remove moisture or simply use your hands and squeeze the juices out.
Next in a bowl, mix shredded zucchini, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, garlic powder, flour and egg. Combine until well incorporated.
Then you'll want to add some oil into a pan. You want to put just enough oil to cover the surface for a shallow fry.
Using a cookie scooper or a spoon, add the mixture onto the pan. If using a scooper, just scoop each individually and then use spoon to form your pattie or nugget shape.
