  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup small-diced sweet or yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup grated Asiago Cheese feel free to use Parmesan, mozzarella, or even cheddar
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 400˚ F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Don't use foil - the tots will stick to it like super-glue. Trust me.
  • Combine all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl using a large metal spoon.</span>
  • Using a soup spoon, scoop the zucchini mixture into mounds, and gentle shape. Each tot is about 2 tablespoons, and you should end up with 10 tots. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, gently flip over, and bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Serve warm.
