  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Combine zucchini and carrot in a large bowl. Squeeze out excess water using a paper towel.
  3. Mix bread crumbs, feta cheese, basil, egg, salt, pepper, and oregano into zucchini-carrot mixture. Scoop mixture using a mini ice cream scoop or 2 spoons and press mixture into the prepared muffin tin using the back of a spoon.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Top tots with a little shredded cheese and a drizzle of olive oil prior to baking for a crispy, crunchy top.
  • Finely minced onion can be used in place of the carrot.
  • Any variety of cheese (such as Mexican cheese blend or Italian cheese blend) can be used in place of the feta, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Made as written except that I used the two spoon method to "shape" the tots and I baked them on a regular pizza pan. These were good but had a sweetness to them that I think came from the carrot...
