  1. Wash and dry zucchini. Grate zucchini using the large holes of a cheese grater and place in a large bowl. Squeeze dry with paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl with the zucchini, and stir until well combined.
  3. Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Drop about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet, and use a small spoon to form each fritter in the pan.
  5. Cook about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  6. Set fritters aside and keep warm while cooking the rest. Repeat with remaining batter to make the rest of the fritters.
  7. Enjoy warm with low fat Greek yogurt or sour cream if desired!
Recipe Notes

Broccoli Cheese Sticks

Broccoli Cheese Sticks

Broccoli and cheese–who doesn’t love them?  Okay, well there might be a few people (like my hubs).  At any rate, a veggie that looks like bread in the form of a stick can’t be all bad, right? 

The “cheese” is actually nutritional yeast, so these “cheese sticks” are dairy-free!  Nutritional yeast is not an active yeast.  It is flaky and has a nutty, cheesy-like taste and is often substituted for grated cheese. It also tastes amazing on roasted vegetables.  It is also filled with B vitamins and keeps you compliant with ALL Diet Levels!

You can find nutritional yeast at HEB and Whole Foods, as well as online. A little goes a long way, so buying a jar or bag of it will last you a year!

Instructions
  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the broccoli florets. Boil for 8-10 minutes, until broccoli is soft, then drain the water. (Or follow directions on package if using frozen. i.e., can microwave, etc.)
  2. Add the broccoli to a food processor and pulse until broccoli is broken down and scrape the broccoli "paste" out of the food processor and into a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and nutritional yeast together.
  4. Add the dried ingredients to the broccoli, then add the egg and apple cider vinegar and mix until well combined.
  5. Pour the mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place another piece of parchment paper over the top. Using a rolling pin (or your hands), spread by pressing it out on the top piece of parchment paper (to avoid it sticking) until it's roughly ⅓ - ½ inch thick.
  6. Remove the top piece of parchment paper. Using a pizza cutter, score the dough into 1" wide pieces to make sticks. Also score the dough in the middle
  7. Place into the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden and the middle is cooked through. Let cool, then break the pieces into sticks.
  8. Store at room temperature for a few days, or to keep longer, place in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Freeze any leftover sticks and thaw when needed.
