Zucchini Poppers

Zucchini Poppers make flavorful and healthy appetizers, and they are a great way way to use the zucchini from your summer garden. Zucchini doesn't have a lot of flavor alone, but absorb added flavors beautifully. These particular appetizers have a mild cheesy flavor that both kids and adults love. Eat them alone or in a sandwich, bun, wrap, sub, or sauce.

Prep time    15 minutes  

Cook time   15-18 minutes    

Yield               4 servings

 

🌱Ingredients

  • 4 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 onion, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

👩‍🍳Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Grate the zucchini and squeeze out any excess water using a clean dishtowel.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini and grated onion with the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. I like to combine the mixture with my hands to incorporate everything evenly.
  4. Roll 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture into small cylinders and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown, crispy, and dry to the touch.

✏️ Tips & Hints

  • You can shape these poppers into patties, balls, or even mini muffins. Freezing works great with this recipe so double the recipe and fill your freezer!
