Zuch haystacks 

This recipe was rolled out in an effort to get rid of a lot of zucchini….lets face it, the stuff grows like a weed. Luckily it’s also super versatile and practically calorie free. No really, there are just 19 calories in one cup of raw zucchini.

This is a simple and quick recipe, feel free to play around with it…I wasn’t over the moon about the way the almond meal worked and would have rather used regular gluten-free flour.

Ingredients:

2 large zucchini shredded

2 eggs or equivalent in egg replacer

1 tbsp hemp hearts

3 cloves garlic, pressed or diced

3/4 cup flour (your choice)

1.5-2 tbsp unscented coconut oil for frying

Salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Take shredded zucchini and lightly salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Strain out all excess moisture.

Add all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Scoop out a heaping tablespoon worth for each “patty”.

On stove-top heat up 1/2 tsp of oil at a time over medium-high heat. Do not let it smoke.

Transfer spoonful into hot pan, squish down into small patty. Cook for 3 minutes each side, until browned well.

Transfer to plate with paper towel and serve hot.
