Ingredients
  1. 2 Medium Zucchini, Shredded (about 5 cups)
  2. 2 tsp Sea Salt
  3. 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  4. 1 lg Egg, Beaten
  5. 1 tsp Black Pepper
  6. 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  7. 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  8. 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper, optional
  9. Coconut Oil or Ghee for cooking
Instructions
  1. Shred the zucchini with a grater or food processor with a shredding blade.
  2. Put the zucchini in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the salt and toss well. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Put the zucchini in a strainer and rinse.
  4. Squeeze as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible! You want to remove as much moisture as possible - the dryer the better. I laid mine out in a thin layer on some paper towels and then squeezed to absorb the last bit of moisture. Put in a clean, dry bowl.
  5. Add the almond flour, egg, and spices. Stir to combine.
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Melt a large spoonful of ghee or coconut oil in the pan.
  7. Pack 1/4 cup measuring cup with the zucchini mixture, pressing it down inside the cup.
  8. Turn the cup out onto the pan and flatten it until you get a slightly thin patty. (The thickness is really up to you, but I think mine cooked more consistently when they were on the thin side!)
  9. Cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes or until nicely browned.
  10. Add more ghee or coconut oil each time you start a new batch.
  11. Place on a cooling rack so they don't get soggy.
Notes
