Turkey Zucchini Patties

‘Healthy fast food’ is what I call these five ingredient easy to make turkey zucchini patties!

I’ve probably made hundreds of these delicious little bites over the years, for clients and for my family, and everyone loves these delicious turkey zucchini patties!

Turkey Zucchini Patties

All you need to whip up the recipe is one pound of ground turkey, a medium zucchini (or two small), herb such as cilantro or basil, a couple of stalks of green onion, and your seasoning of choice, that’s it!

Zucchini, the Versatile, Low Carb Star!

Zucchini, also known as courgette or summer squash, is in abundance in the summer season. This versatile, low calorie vegetable is the star that holds together this turkey zucchini patty recipe without eggs or breadcrumbs and makes the patties so juicy and delicious!

One recipe of these turkey zucchini patties will yield about eight patties, I’d recommend making double as they freeze really well, and are so useful as a snack or meal on the go.

Delicious served alone or with this Zucchini Tzatziki recipe, I bet these will become your new favorite!
