Zucchini Patties

A great alternative to the burgers.

A great alternative to the burgers.

A great alternative for those precious burgers you might be craving. This is a certain recipe to get the juices flowing and having all the joy of the burger at, quite literally, your fingertips. Enjoy!


1 large zucchini, grated
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
5-6 white or cremini mushrooms, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper, to taste
bread crumbs, as needed
1-2 teaspoons flour, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, if baking. Add some salt to the grated zucchini and allow it to drain for a few minutes in a colander to remove excess moisture.

In a mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, onion, garlic, mushrooms, parsley and oregano.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add enough bread crumbs so that the mixture sticks together well enough to form patties. I find that adding the small amount of flour helps the mixture stick together better. The mix should make about 8 (4″) round patties depending on the size of the zucchini used.

Cook the patties in one of two ways:  pan fry them in a bit of oil or lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and bake for about 20 minutes,  or until nicely browned.
