  • 1 heaping cup grated zucchini

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat panko I used Ian's organic brown rice breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • olive oil
  • marinara sauce for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Place grated zucchini in a cheesecloth or kitchen towel and wring out all excess water (there will be a lot!)
  • Place zucchini in a bowl along with all other ingredients, except olive oil
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Take a tablespoon of mixture and form into a round ball or oval shape
  • Repeat until all mixture is used
  • Arrange tots on the baking sheet and spray or brush the tops with olive oil
  • Bake until puffed up and lightly golden, about 20 minutes flipping half way during cooking time.
  • Serve with marinara for dipping
