Ingredients
  • 1 cup zucchini grated and drained well
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated fine
  • 1 clove garlic grated fine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil chopped

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Shape a tablespoon of the mixture into your hands, pat into small balls, and place on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes in the preheated oven until golden. Serve warm with marinara sauce. Recipe makes about 16 bites.
