Kolokythia Krokettes
Dana, Low Carb Newsletter

3 medium zucchini, grated
1 teaspoon salt or Vege-Sal
3 eggs
1 cup feta, crumbled
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 medium onion, diced fine
Pinch pepper
3 tablespoons unflavored protein powder or soy powder

Sprinkle the salt over the grated zucchini and let it sit for an hour. Squeeze out and drain the excess moisture. Mix in everything else, and combine well. Spray a heavy skillet with non-stick spray, and add a
good tablespoon of butter; heat over medium heat. Fry the batter by the tablespoonful, turning each one once. Add more butter between batches, as needed, keeping the ones that are already cooked warm on a plate in a warm place. The trick with these is to let them get quite brown on the
bottom before trying to turn them, or they tend to fall apart. If a few do fall apart, they'll still taste *incredible*.

This whole batch of krokettes has just 12 grams of usable carb!
