Cook Time

10 minutes

Total Time

25 minutes

4 servings


1 1/2 pounds zucchini, grated

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup all-purpose gluten free flour

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large egg, beaten

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil


Place grated zucchini in a colander over the sink. Add salt and gently toss to combine; let sit for 10 minutes. Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain zucchini completely.
