A savoury recipe? Whaaaaaaaaaat. Don’t worry, I’m not ill, I just had a bunch of zucchini’s to use up. As soon as these bites were cool enough I tried one, then another one, then just one more to be completely sure that they were DELICIOUS. These would be great for picnics, lunchboxes and as a savoury snack in general. You can flavour them any way that you like, just make sure you don’t add anything with too much moisture. I have dreams of doing a feta and mint version, how rad would that be?
Cheesy Zucchini Bites
3 cups grated zucchini, packed (about 3 medium zucchini’s)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp garlic powder
6 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat the oven to 220 C and line a large baking tray with baking paper, spray it lightly with oil.
Place the zucchini in a kitchen towel and wring out as much liquid as possible (do this over the sink).
Mix together the zucchini with all of the other ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking tray and slightly flatten them using your hands.
Bake for 16-20 minutes or until the edges start to brown (this depends a lot on your oven).
Allow to cool on the tray, eat warm or at room temperature.
