We have still plenty of zucchini and I love cooking everything in season. These zucchini tots are actually keto version of Greek zucchini tots.

Bake it in the oven!

It’s so easy to make these delicious low carb zucchini bites. Especially good is the thing that you can make it in the oven. I love preparing my food in the oven because I’m working mom with a big family, small children, etc. So I always look how to create more time for everything what I love. Baking in the oven is a great way to prepare healthy and nourishing food for your family and at the same time to create some time for the things you like.

Squeeze zucchini!

This sounds funny, but this is crucial if you plan to get really delicious zucchini bites that are not soggy. It’s the best to grate zucchini, place in the colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for at least 10 minutes to release the water.

After that, squeeze out all the excess water, as much as you can, with your hands and place zucchini in the bowl. On that way, structure of these delicious keto tots will be much better and great for dipping and snacking.

      Hi! Thank you! Better replace it with some hard cheese. Mascarpone and ricotta might give you too wet consistncy.
