Total time

30 minutes




  • 3-4 medium zucchini
  • 0.5 + ¼ tsp. coarse salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 0.5 tsp each dried basil leaves and garlic powder
  • 0.25 tsp each ground black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp canola or olive oil


  1. Place shredded zucchini and ½ teaspoon salt in a large mixing bowl. Allow to sit 10 minutes. Place zucchini in a large kitchen towel, wrap it up and twist, and squeeze water into the sink. Once zucchini is mostly dry, place it back into the mixing bowl. Stir in remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, eggs, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast flakes and herbs and spices until thoroughly combined. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet or nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Form zucchini mixture into a patty and place in the hot oil. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side, until each side is browned and crispy. Repeat with remaining zucchini mixture. Serve with spicy mayo (4 Tbsp. mayo + 2 tsp. Sriracha).
