ZUCCHINI PARMESAN FRITTERS

Ingredients

4 large eggs, separated
2 medium zucchini, trimmed and grated
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup coconut-flax flour blend (To make, mix equal parts coconut flour with ground flaxseed and refrigerate in an airtight container)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Canola or olive oil cooking spray
3 teaspoons canola or virgin olive oil

Directions

1 – Place egg whites in large mixing bowl. Using electric mixer, beat on high speed until stiff peaks form and whites cling to sides of bowl when tilted. Set aside.
2 – Place egg yolks, zucchini, Parmesan, mozzarella, parsley, basil, coconut-flax flour blend, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in another large bowl. Stir well until zucchini is coated with flour. Using rubber spatula, gently fold in egg whites until just combined. There will be streaks of egg whites.

Cook 2-3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Transfer to plate. Repeat twice, using 1 teaspoon of oil and four 1/4 measures of batter each time.
