Zucchini Patties

Let’s get a few things out of the way.

1. Don’t be Judgy McJudgersons regarding my incredible iPhone photos

2. I didn’t take the time to put together my typical recipe card for you.

3. These things really are good despite the fact that I couldn’t spend the time taking legit photos.

Ok, now that I have aired all my dirty laundry, you really should try these Zucchini Patties.   They are a perfect balance of spice meets veggie.

Ingredients

2 cups shredded zucchini

1 small shredded onion

2 eggs

1/2 tsp sea salt

3 cloves minced garlic

3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

2 tsp. Hot sauce

1 tsp. cajun seasoning

3 cooked egg whites, diced

 

Directions

1. Squeeze out fluid from onion and zucchini.  Like, legit, squeeze.  Then blot on paper towel and squeeze again.   I promise there is more water that you could ever imagine in shredded zucchini and onion.

2. Combine all ingredients (except cooked egg whites) in a bowl.  Mix well.   Fold in diced egg whites.

3. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan, spoon batter onto hot oil, creating whatever size of patty your little heart desires.

4. Cook each side until golden brown and cooked all the way through.

5. Enjoy!

 

Tzatziki Sauce

I made a quick Tzatziki sauce for the topping because I thought it sounded like a refreshing balance to the spice.

I liked it ok, but to be honest, I liked the hot sauce I slathered on it more when I reheated leftovers the next night.   🙂

1 cup Greek Yogurt

1 Cucumber grated

3 minced garlic cloves

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp dill weed

Mix all together.
