Try these super delicious and summery zucchini and almond patties. They are high in protein, low in carbs, and full of flavor as well. They can also be prepared within a very short time, so you have more time enjoying the warm weather.

Grate the zucchini
Then transfer the grated zucchini to a bowl and add all other ingredients. Gently combine – don’t squeeze too hard because otherwise you will squeeze out more liquid from the zucchini and then you will need more flour to absorb the moisture (talking of which, there is no need to drain the water out of the zucchini because you are using the moisture to bind everything together). Create little balls.
By the way, if you want to make them gluten-free, add around 1 3/4 cup ground almonds and take out the flour completely. I tried it before, and it worked, though the flour helped to bind the patties a bit better.
Add a good amount of oil to a hot pan and then place the zucchini balls in the pan. Flatten them with a spatula so that they are about 1/2 in thick. Fry on both sides until they are crispy on the outside.
Serve with soy yogurt or hummus and a fresh mixed salad on the side. Enjoy!
