1. Begin by shredding the zucchini on a box grater or in a food processor.
2. Transfer the zucchini to a fine mesh strainer, then toss with the salt to draw out the liquid.

4. Whisk the eggs in a medium mixing bowl.
5. Add the zucchini, scallions, dill, feta, garlic, and pepper.
6. Mix well.
7. Sprinkle the Otto's Naturals - Cassava flour and baking powder over top.

11. Serve warm or room temperature with lemon wedges.

How do you pick a good Zucchini at the grocery store?
When choosing a zucchini, make sure it is fairly firm and not too soft. It should feel similar to a cucumber but a little bit more flexible. Try to avoid zucchinis that are too soft as they will end up being mushy when cooked.
