Delectable Zucchini Croquettes

Best Blog Tips

These are very tasty, with a bit of crunch to them. You can use them as a side for a variety of dishes. You can also cut them in pieces and add them to scrambles and to stir-fries. You can also place them in a tortilla, with your favorite toppings and sauce and roll them up for a quick lunch on the go!

1 Zucchini
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sesame seeds (raw, although you can use toasted seeds if you want to enhance their flavor)
1 tsp. garlic powder (1/2 tsp. if you are not a garlic lover)
1 1/2 Tbsp. onion powder (1 tsp. onion powder if you like it less spicy)
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt to taste
1 cup almond milk (1/4 cup raw almonds + 1 cup water)

Cut the zucchini lengthwise, then cut it into small pieces.
Take 1/4 cup raw almonds and process them with 1 cup of water to form the milk.
Pour into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients to form a thick batter.
"Paint" a cast iron skillet with olive oil and drop the mixture into it using a large spoon. Wait until they set before turning them. Cook on both sides till golden brown.

Yield: Approx. 15 or depending on size.
