These crispy cakes make the perfect side dish or appetizer for any meal! The first time I made these I didn’t make the sriracha sauce and let me tell you… big mistake. The dipping sauce is what absolutely made this dish 10/10 it’s spicy and refreshing and the perfect partner for these cakes.

Ingredients:

For the cakes:
2 zucchini squash
1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 egg
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
½ tbsp. za’atar seasoning
avocado oil for cooking

For the dressing:
1/3 cup chosen foods avocado mayo
1/2 tbsp sriracha
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Shred your zucchini with a cheese grater and drain with a cheese cloth or towel (try to get as much water out as you can!). Pour chickpeas into a food processor and pulse until you get small chunks. Mix the shredded zucchini, chickpeas, egg, breadcrumbs and seasoning in a bowl until well combined. Heat avocado oil in a skillet on medium to high heat and cook the zucchini cakes for 3-5 minutes on each side. Remove the cakes from the pan and place on paper towels to soak up the extra oil. Mix  the dressing ingredients in a small bowl, garnish with fresh parsely, and serve.

Salmon Zucchini Burgers

Salmon Zucchini Burgers

Salmon burgers are something I’ve been dying to make for a while and I’m so glad I finally did because these were too freakin’ good. They only take about 20 minutes to make so these will definitely be something I make often when I’m busy and need a quick and easy meal!

Ingredients:

1lb cooked salmon

1/3 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 zucchini

1 tsp dijon mustard

Seasoning of your choice (I used himalayan pink salt, garlic, black pepper, oregano, parsley, and thyme)

Directions:

Grate half a zucchini and add it to a bowl with the cooked salmon, breadcrumbs, mustard, and seasonings. Mix and mash the salmon and zucchini with the dry ingredients until it sticks together well enough to form burger patties. Heat olive/avocado/coconut oil on medium heat in a skillet. Form four patties from the salmon mix and cook about 5 minutes on each side.

(makes 4 burger patties)
