  • 4 cups shredded zucchini about 4 medium-size zucchini
  • cups corn kernels fresh or frozen and defrosted (about 8 ounces)
  • ¾ cup chopped green onions about 6 green onions
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • cup chickpea flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • high heat oil
  • nacho cashew cream for serving
  • black beans, salsa and avocado for serving


  • In a large bowl, combine shredded zucchini, corn, green onions, chickpea flour, garlic, cumin, oregano, thyme, salt & pepper. Stir together until well combined. Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes. This step is important because the flour will absorb the moisture from the zucchini and create a batter.
  • Warm a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Grease with preferred cooking oil then scoop out 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture at a time into the skillet. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side, until light golden brown. Serve warm with black beans, salsa, nacho cashew cream and/or avocado then enjoy!
