I miss potato-based foods!! I've been lamenting over not being able to eat french fries and tater tots, but now, I've create an alternative using zucchini!
300 g shredded zucchini (about 2 cups)
25 g ground up pork rinds
2.5 egg whites
2.5 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (I used the Parmesan and Romano blend from TJs = 0 carbs)
Oil for frying
Pat the zucchini so that most of the moisture is removed. If you have a food processor, you can run it through there as well, but grating the zucchini will work just fine! Mix together all the ingredients. Form into little cylinders and cook in hot oil until browned. If you want a zingy dipping sauce, try using some low-carb dressing with a splash of Sriracha sauce!
