Ingredients

  • 10 ounces grated zucchini (skin on)
  • 3 ounces bell pepper (diced, any colour)
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 3 ounces pancetta (optional)

Instructions

To make the Zucchini Burgers:

  • Grate the zucchini and place in a metal sieve. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and let drain for 25 minutes.
    Rinse with water to remove salt, and squeeze out excess liquid.
  • Place drain zucchini in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Form into 2 balls, giving a squeeze to remove any remaining liquid.
  • Form into 2 patties approximately 3/4 inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. 
  • Place on wax paper. You can place these in the fridge until ready to use (even overnight).

To cook the Zucchini Burgers:

  • Heat the grill to medium-high.
  • Use a grill mat for best results.
  • Grill burgers approximately 5-6 minutes per side.
  • Will burgers are cooking, you can grill your pancetta at the other end of the mat.
  • Remove cooker burgers and place on buns. 
     Top with pancetta.
     Garnish with your desired ingredients.
  • ENJOY!
