  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini about 2 medium or 1 large, grated
  • 2 teaspoons salt divided
  • 3/4 pound ground beef or other ground meat
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • black pepper freshly ground


  1. Grate the zucchini (to speed things up I use my food processor with shredding attachment). Combine with 1 teaspoon of salt and let stand for about 10 minutes to draw out excess water.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets.
  3. Squeeze out as much water from the grated zucchini as possible and place in to a large bowl. Combine with all remaining ingredients and form patties from about 1/4 cup of the mixture.
  4. Place patties on prepared baking sheets and slide onto the lower center rack of your oven.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then flip the patties and bake for about 15 minutes.
  6. Serve on small buns as sliders or with any sides (we like baked sweet potato fries or pasta with these).
