Zucchini Feta Burgers

It's a good thing my husband wasn't home for dinner the night I made these; the kids and I devoured all of them!

1 carrot, shredded
3 small zucchini, shredded
1 egg
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup flour (I used all-purpose GF flour mix)
1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese

Grate the zucchini in a food processor and set aside in a bowl or on a plate; sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit for five minutes while you grate the carrot and onion.
Now squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini. The original recipe talks about using cheesecloth to do this and that would probably be a lot easier. I used paper towels though. Be sure to squeeze and squeeze the liquid out.
Now mix together the zucchini, carrot, onion, egg, and black pepper.
Add in the flour and stir again until the flour is well spread throughout the mixture.
Finally add the Feta.
Heat up a large skillet. Coat with a bit of olive oil. Form mixture into burger shapes and place in hot pan.
Cook 4-5 minutes and flip.
Cook another 4-5 minutes and enjoy!

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
