  • ¼ cup (40 g) green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Grate the zucchini with a coarse cheese grater.
  3. Transfer the grated bits to a medium bowl and season with a ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Mix the zucchini until well incorporated.
  4. Let the zucchini sit for 20 minutes until the salt has drawn out some of the moisture.
  5. Pour the zucchini into a kitchen towel and twist to strain as much liquid as you can.
  6. Place the grated zucchini back into a bowl and mix with the breadcrumbs, green onions, garlic, onion powder, remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt, pepper, and egg, and mix until well combined.
  7. From the mixture into 15 even sized tots and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 20-24 minutes, flipping each halfway through.
  9. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
  10. Enjoy!
