  • 1 pound zucchini, grated

  • salt to taste

  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 4 leaves basil, chopped

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

  • 1 pinch onion powder

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or as needed


  1. Squeeze grated zucchini in paper towels to release as much water as possible. Spread zucchini on fresh paper towels and sprinkle with salt; let sit for 30 minutes to release additional water; squeeze again.

  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, eggs, green onions, garlic, basil, nutmeg, onion powder, and black pepper in a bowl; add zucchini. Stir to combine.

  3. Heat butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Form golf ball-sized zucchini patties and place in hot frying pan. Fry until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
