Ingredients

1½ lbs zucchini (about 5 med or 3 lg)
½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
3 egg whites
2 tsp minced garlic
1½ tsp oregano
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
cup panko breadcrumbs
1 cup toasted, chopped pistachios
2 cups Horiatiki Salad

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Medium grate zucchini and wrap in cheesecloth. Squeeze out all excess water from zucchini.
  3. In a large bowl, combine by hand the squeezed zucchini, feta, egg whites, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, breaking up feta cheese very well.
  4. Place mixture into a fine mesh strainer and press to release excess water. Allow mixture to sit in the strainer over a bowl for about 10 minutes to ensure excess moisture is released.
  5. Place drained mixture into a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs and allow the mixture to sit for 3 to 5 minutes to ensure all liquid is completely absorbed.
  6. Scoop ⅓ cup mixture and hand form into 2-inch diameter cakes. Lightly coat a large sauté pan with canola oil spray. Sear each cake for about 1 minute on each side.
  7. Place cakes on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  8. Serve 3 zucchini cakes topped with 3 tablespoons chopped pistachios and ¾ cup Horiatiki Salad on the side.
