grated Asiago Cheese

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.
