  • 3 cups shredded zucchini, about 1 lb. zucchini (use the large side of a box grater to shred or your food processor with shredding disc)
  • 1 cup chopped tomato, with seeds removed
  • 1 ¼ tsp salt, divided
  • 2 Tbsp chopped scallions
  • cup crumbled feta
  • ½ cup panko
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • Tribe Mezze Dip of your choice, for topping
  • Finely chopped fresh parsley, for topping (optional)


  • Put grated zucchini and chopped tomato into a colander of mesh strainer placed over a bowl and sprinkle 1 tsp salt over them. Stir and let sit for about 30 minutes.
  • Transfer zucchini mixture to a mesh bag, cheese cloth, or kitchen towel. Wrap, hold over the sink or a bowl, and squeeze tightly to extract as much water as you can. If preferred, you can just use your hands to squeeze water out.
  • In a large bowl, add grated zucchini, chopped tomato, scallions, feta, panko, oregano, parsley, basil, red pepper flakes, remaining ¼ tsp salt, pepper, garlic, and egg. Mix together until well combined.
  • Using your hands, form about 10 patties with the mixture.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp olive oil and when hot, place half the zucchini cakes in skillet. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, until cakes are golden brown.
  • Serve zucchini cakes topped with Tribe Mezze Dip of your choice (I highly recommend the Spicy Tomato Feta Dip) and chopped parsley.
