Careful! Careen told me she had to slap her own hand away these were so good!! You prolly won't have any leftovers...so just go ahead and make a double batch of these guilt-less, delicious happy patties!!! Protein, veggies, salt...and SIMPLE... YES MA'AM!!! I'm in!!
4 cups Shredded zucchini
2-3 Tbsp Coconut flour
2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup Sliced scallions (green and white parts)
1/4 tsp Sea salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
1-2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese (Optional - only if you can tolerate dairy)
Place the shredded zucchini in a colander set over a bowl and sprinkle the zucchini lightly with salt. Allow the zucchini to stand for 10 minutes. Using your hands and a paper towel, squeeze out as much liquid from the zucchini as possible.
Transfer the zucchini to a large bowl. Add the flour, eggs, sliced scallions, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to the bowl, stirring until the mixture is combined. Liberally coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with coconut oil and place it over medium-high heat. Line a plate with paper towels. Once the oil is hot, scoop a 3-Tablespoon mound of the zucchini mixture into the pan, pressing lightly into "fritters" and spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Cook your happy patties for 2 to 3 minutes, flip once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout. Transfer the zucchini fritters to the paper towel-lined plate. Salt to taste. Repeat the scooping and cooking process with the remaining zucchini mixture.
Serve the zucchini fritters immediately and enjoy! These reheat well in a toaster oven. Be creative and top with a salsa verde, pico de gallo, guacamole or homemade aioli!
