If any of you are like me; wanting to eat healthier and in the transition between carnivore to herbivore I created the perfect recipe! It is called Zucchini Burger, which satisfies the need for a sandwich but doesn’t have the red meat. Here it goes:
What you will need:
1 large Zucchini grated (I used my food processor for this), Drain any excess water using layered paper towels.
1 cup of Bread Crumbs of your choice
½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of Nutmeg (too much will overpower the recipe)
¼ tsp of Paprika
¼ tsp Oregano
Salt and Pepper to liking
2 Large Eggs
1 Garlic Clove, minced
2 tbsp of Olive Oil or Crisco
How to Prepare:
Place a medium Frying Pan on low heat, add the 2 tbsp of Olive Oil or Crisco, let sit until hot.
In a small mixing bowl beat both Eggs until well combined.
In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients including beaten Eggs.
On a cookie sheet or wooden plank, place parchment paper sprinkled with flour down. Dollop mixture on cookie sheet and flatten into a patty form.
Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 Minutes (This allows the patties to cook without falling apart).
Take the patties out of the fridge and start frying them in the frying pan, flip when edges are light brown and crispy.
Place on a plate with paper towels to drain the oil out.
Fix however you enjoy your burger!
