Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 teaspoon salt
6 medium zuchinni -- grated
1 small onion -- chopped
1 egg -- whisked
1/4 cup spelt flour
1/4 cup parmesan cheese -- grated
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the zuchinni in a colander inside a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt. Set a medium plate ontop of the zuchinni and weigh it down with a full kettle (or something equally heavy) and this will remove a lot of the water in the zuchinni. Leave it for 30 minutes.

Add the chopped onion to the zuchinni, then add the egg, flour, sesame seeds and cheese and stir the mixture till everything is blended.

Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet and then add a heaped tablespoonful of the zuchinni mixture and flatten into a pattie. Make three or four of them at a time, adding more coconut oil when needed. When browned on both sides and set aside in a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Once all the zuchinni is fried and placed on the baking tray, place in the oven for 10 minutes.

Serve with sour cream. Can be a meal by themselves or can be a great appetizer.

NOTES : I am really loving this recipe for a summer breakfast. Zuchinni is an great source of manganese and vitamin C. It is also a very good source of magnesium, vitamin A, dietary fiber, potassium, copper, folate, and phosphorus. In addition, zuchinni is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, calcium, zinc, niacin, and protein.
It is also very low in calories, so, wonderful for weight loss.
