Zucchini Patties

Zucchini patties are a tasty and healthy option for a side dish or a light meal. Here’s a simple recipe for delicious zucchini patties:


  • 2 medium-sized zucchinis, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt (for drawing out moisture from zucchini)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or breadcrumbs for a non-keto version)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Prepare Zucchini:
    • Grate the zucchinis using a box grater or a food processor.
    • Place the grated zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt, and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to release excess moisture.
  2. Squeeze Out Moisture:
    • After letting the zucchini sit, use your hands or a clean kitchen towel to squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
  3. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, combine the grated zucchini, Parmesan cheese, almond flour, minced garlic, chopped parsley, beaten eggs, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Form Patties:
    • Take a small handful of the mixture and form it into a patty. The mixture may be a bit delicate, so handle it gently.
  5. Cooking:
    • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
    • Place the zucchini patties in the skillet, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
    • Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the patties are cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  7. Optional:
    • Serve the zucchini patties with a side of Greek yogurt, sour cream, or a simple dipping sauce.

These zucchini patties are not only delicious but also a great way to enjoy the flavors of fresh zucchini. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite herbs or spices. Enjoy!
