Category:appetizer, side dish, lunch
1 1/2 lbs zucchini, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cassava flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
oil, for cooking
Cilantro Mayo Sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 handful cilantro, finely chopped (keep the stems if you want)
1/2 lime, juiced
cayenne pepper (optional, to taste)
Grate your zucchini by hand or in a food processor.
Sprinkle the 1/2 tsp of salt over the zucchini and let it sit in a colander over a bowl for 10 minutes.
While you’re waiting for the zucchini, you can make the cilantro lime mayo. Combine the handful of chopped cilantro, the mayo, and the lime juice in a bowl and stir until combined. Add cayenne, to taste (optional).
After 10 minutes of sitting, wring out the zucchini in a cheese cloth or kitchen towel. Try to get as much of the moisture out as possible.
Combine the graded zucchini, the spices, egg, and flour in a bowl and stir to combine.
Heat your pan to medium/medium-low. And drizzle a little oil.
Using a 1 Tbsp scoop, add the mixture to the hot pan and flatten a bit. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.
