  • ¼ cup grated carrot

  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

  • 1 egg

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon dried oregano


  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.
