Zucchini Poppers

Zucchini Poppers make flavorful and healthy appetizers, and they are a great way way to use the zucchini from your summer garden. Zucchini doesn't have a lot of flavor alone, but absorb added flavors beautifully. These particular appetizers have a mild cheesy flavor that both kids and adults love. Eat them alone or in a sandwich, bun, wrap, sub, or sauce.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15-18 minutes

Yields: 16-20 poppers



4 cups shredded zucchini

1 onion, shredded

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes

2 tablespoons tahini

1 tablespoon white miso paste

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Grate the zucchini and squeeze out any excess water using a clean dishtowel.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini and grated onion with the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. I like to combine the mixture with my hands to incorporate everything evenly.

4. Roll 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture into small cylinders and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown, crispy, and dry to the touch.

Kim’s Hint: You can shape these poppers into patties, balls, or even mini muffins. Freezing works great with this recipe so double the recipe and fill your freezer!
