ingredients

1 zucchini

2 carrots

½ cup flour

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 egg (optional)

2 tbsp olive oil

instructions

Using a box grater, shred the zucchini and carrots. In paper towels or a dish rag, ring out the zucchini and carrots to release excess moisture.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper with the zucchini and carrots. Toss to coat.

In a small bowl, whisk egg, then add to the zucchini and carrot mixture. Stir to combine.

In a large skillet, add olive oil over and heat over high-medium heat, drop about a 1/4 cup scoop of the mixture into the pan. Slightly flatten to create a 2-inch patty. Cook until lightly brown and then flip and cook until both sides are evenly browned.

Enjoy!
