Clean Zucchini Poppers Recipe

zucchini poppers

Ingredients:

(For 24 poppers)

  • 1 medium-sized zucchini
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of pepper

Directions:

  1. Put zucchini and carrot into food processor and pulse until it is finely grated (or grate them both by hand).
  2. Pour zucchini and carrot onto a paper towel and blot moisture off as much as possible.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine zucchini and carrot mixture, onion, flaxseed, egg, and all spices.
  4. Stir until completely combined.
  5. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  6. Make small balls of zucchini mixture and place them on a GREASED cookie sheet. They’ll stick like crazy if you don’t use enough oil.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned.
  8. Let cool slightly before serving, and enjoy!

These are a great side to a clean turkey burger, a perfect afternoon snack, or a delicious appetizer when dipped in clean marinara sauce!
