Ingredients

  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind

  • 1/4 cup canola oil , for frying

Directions

  • Toss zucchini with salt in a medium bowl and let stand for 5 min to draw out moisture.

  • Purée beans in a food processor, transfer to a bowl and stir in egg, parsley, garlic and lemon rind until well combined.
  • Add zucchini and bread crumbs and mix until fully incorporated. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium-high.
