Zucchini Cakes

=Serves 4 People=


2 medium zucchini

1 tsp salt

2 green onions, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 egg

½ cup almond flour (optional)

½ tsp baking powder

Coconut oil or clarified butter, for cooking


Use a julienne peeler to grate your zucchini into strips, making sure to avoid grating it too thin

Place zucchini strips in a bowl and toss in the salt.  Let zucchini sit in the salt for at least 10 minutes.  Extract excess water from the zucchini, I used a tea strainer and my fingers to push the liquid out.  A cheese cloth works well too.

Put the drained zucchini into the bowl, and combine the ingredients until mixed

Heat coconut oil in a skillet on medium heat

Form little patties with the mixture

Place the patties on the skillet and let them brown on each side, about 3-4 minutes

When cooked, place on a paper towel to soak up the excess oil
