This recipe makes a yummy and health appetizer.

  • 1 c. zucchini, fresh, organic
  • 1 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 1/4 onion, yellow, organic
  • 1/4 c. cheese, any type, raw, organic
  • 1/4 c. breadcrumbs, made from sprouted whole-grain bread, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a muffin tin (very lightly) with coconut or olive oil, then set aside.

Grate the zucchini (about 1 medium). Then, set the grated zucchini on paper towels and set aside for 10 minutes to soak up all the water in the zucchini. (Note: skipping this step will result in soggy centers.)

Combine the egg, diced onion, shredded cheese, bread crumbs, grated zucchini, salt, and pepper all together in a bowl. Mix well.

Using a spoon, scoop the mix into the muffin tins (about 1/2 way for larger tin cups or to the top for mini-muffin cups).

Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown on top and somewhat crispy.
