New Recipe: Zucchini Burgers

First, thank you guys SO much for all the support on yesterday’s post. It definitely was a little scary to press publish on that one since money is such a personal and touchy subject, but I almost felt like a fraud NOT addressing it since I talk so much about grocery budgeting and being a bargain shopper on here. I got a LOT of questions about budgeting, how I paid/am paying off my cards, and ways to save money through Twitter, the comments, and email, so I’m planning on doing a follow up post, probably next week. If you have any specific questions, feel free to reach out and I’m happy to share my experiences with you.

Moving along… a new recipe! A good one, too.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit that this recipe is inspired by Ruby Tuesday’s. When Wil and I were driving down to visit his mom this weekend, we pulled off the highway to get gas in the middle of nowhere and the options were Ruby Tuesday’s or Waffle House, so you can guess which one we went with. I rarely if ever eat at chains, but Ruby Tuesdays is one of my favorites because they have a great salad bar. There was a lunch special for zucchini sliders (with the salad bar) and I was shocked with how delicious they were! Ruby’s version had red pepper, zucchini, and feta, but they were a little greasy for my taste, so I stole their idea and made a healthified version for dinner last night, and wow. So good.

Zucchini Burgers

This entire recipe as is has 10pts+ and you can find the printable version here. They can be divided however you want to into patties, but I recommend making at least 5 so they are thin enough to cook through because of the raw egg.  These zucchini burgers are super flavorful, moist, and delicious!

To start, here is some of what you need:

  • 1 carrot (not 2)
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 egg (not 2)
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta

The first step is to grate up the zucchini. I used the large part of a grater to do this, but you can do it in a food processor also.

Now, add 1 tsp of salt to the zucchini mix and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Go ahead and prep your other veggies while you’re letting it sit – chop up the onion finely and grate the carrot.

Once that is done sitting, the next step is to get the excess moisture out of the zucchini. I used cheese cloth for the first time last night, but you can also do it with paper towels. Place the zucchini on a piece of cheese cloth:

Pull the cheese cloth around the zucchini:

And SQUEEZE. There will be tons of liquid coming out, so do it over and bowl and keep squeezing until liquid is no longer draining out.

I felt like that picture didn’t do it justice, so I measured it:

Almost 2/3 a cup! Crazy. Now put the drained zucchini into a large bowl.

And add in 1 grated carrot, 1/3 cup diced onion (the smaller the better!), 1 egg, and black pepper.

Stir to combine the mixture, making sure everything is spread around evenly.

Add in 1/4 cup whole wheat flour.

And stir again until the flour is well spread throughout the mixture.

Last step, add in 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese.

And gently fold the feta into the mixture until its spread relatively evenly throughout.

Now, time to cook! Heat up a large skillet, and spray with nonstick spray. You can also cook these in oil, but I just went with spray and it worked great. Using your hands or an ice cream scoop or spoon, place rounds of the mixture on the heated pan. The mixture will be wet – don’t worry! It’ll hold together just fine.

Cook about 4-5 minutes, and the flip!

Cook another 4-5 minutes, and then remove from the heat.

I think my lighting was messed up because these look a little burnt in the photos, but they really were perfect!

They are very moist, flavorful, and stayed together really well. The texture is crunchy on the outside, and soft on he inside. They are loaded with veggies, packed with flavor, and absolutely delicious. They taste quite indulgent, but are super healthy – my favorite combo!

You can serve these patties on hamburger buns, english muffins, pita, over salad, or eat them straight up like I did. You can also experiment with your mix ins for the zucchini burgers. Rubys version had red pepper (I’m not sure if they were roasted or raw) which I wolud have added if I had some on hand, but you can also change up the other veggies in here based on what you have. Enjoy!

Do you eat at chain restaurants? What’s your favorite one? After I wrote this I remembered that though I love the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday’s, The Cheesecake Factory is actually my favorite! Really hard to eat there healthy but the food is just so good.. and the cheesecake. I also love Subway and Chipotle, but I don’t know if those count.

    This recipe sounds great, I will probably try it next week. I eat out at Outback a bunch. I usually get the 6 oz Outback special ($9.99) :6oz steak (cooked w/out butter) and double order of steamed veggies (cooked w/out butter).

    I think these look delicious! Do you think they’d hold up without the feta if I add some bread crumbs?

    Ruby Tuesday is one of my favorite chain places to eat – we usually go there, Panera or Chipotle.

      Hey Holly! I’m sure they’d work with breadcrumbs. You might have to season it a bit more since the feta adds some salt if you make them without. They were so good I ended up eating them all! Ha.

    These look awesome! I’m going to try them next week :). I really hate eating at chain restaurants (especially because there are so many not chain restaurants in my town) but a friend of mine insists on going to chain restaurants when we go out to dinner, and of all of them I prefer Applebees. I feel like you can get a reasonable calorie dish there that tastes pretty good with their uner 550 menu. You just have to abstain from salt for the rest of your life!

    • Beth
      May 5, 2011 at 10:12 am (3 years ago)

      Hi Nina! It does bind it together and also makes the texture a little more cakey. You could probably make it without but I’d use bread crumbs in that case to help soak up some of the moisture from the veggies.

    I have no idea how zucchini works so well in so many different things- burgers, bread, chocolate cake… it’s so weird! But fantastic at the same time…

    The chain I probably hit up the most is Panera- maybe once or twice a month…

        totally. plus my bf is not a vegetarian so i wanted to serve him somethign healthy that he wouldnt call rabbit food. i only had about 3/4 of one large zucchini so i added only one (farmers market) egg. because the mushrooms were still a bit moist they did not cook up like burgers but more like moist zucchini pancakes, so i will play with the ratios, but they are good as pancakes too!

    I ate at Ruby Tuesday’s on Mother’s Day and ordered the zucchini sliders. I was determined to find a recipe online so I could make them myself because they were so good. I loved your recipe. I made a few small substitutions as I didn’t have any carrots so I used some broccoli slaw, added some garlic and since I’m gluten free i used rice flour. They turned out great. I am excited to now do some experimenting with different flavors!

Oh, and to cut down the grease, just tell them to hold the butter and mayo. That will also cut down about 200 calories. I’m linking your recipe on my personal blog. =)

    If you do not want to use eggs to keep it vegan you can use millet and you have a bit of crunch or you can use milled flax seed — my favorite since flax is so good for all of us;; you can also replace the cheese with ground or finely chopped nuts(walnuts or almonds or pecans). It is a wonderful receipe and so much to build off of. Thank you for the submission

    I spoke with one of the chef’s at Ruby Tuesday’s. He said they used the same kind of breadcrumbs they use for their crab cakes. So, I think they must be flavored with some kind of bay seasoning or similar. And that they used jarred roasted red peppers, too, in the mixture.
    I love your recipe, and find them addicting. Love them a lot!

    Excellent recipe! My buddy and I used this for a sustainable foods cookoff, and slightly modified the portions to make 40(ish) sliders. After finishing the patties, we spread a little hummus on top of each one and wrapped them in lettuce leaves. They turned out delicious and sparked a lot of interest at the event.

    Hi Beth – I went to Ruby Tuesdays tonight and tried the zucchini burgers. They were soooo good. I removed the bun and ate them plain. So, when I got home I googled zucchini burgers and went thru some recipes until I found one like Ruby Tuesdays had. When I found your recipe, I couldn’t believe it – it was the recipe I was looking for. They didn’t have the carrot in it. They had red pepper. I think they must have saute them first. I would cut it really tiny so you don’t have to pre-cook them but I want to try it with the carrot.
    I’m going to make these tomorrow as they are delicious. I don’t really care for feta cheese but in these burgers it really complimented the flavor.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    These are amazing! I have been making them at least a couple times a week for the past month and they are a huge hit with my family. The second time I made them, my husband insisted I make a double batch. For the two of us!

    I have made them two ways so far- once to your recipe and the other gluten free, which I thought some others may find valuable. Instead of the flour, I used scant 1/4 cup of finely ground rice crackers plus half a tablespoon of almond flour. My mom is gluten free and that is what she had on hand in her house to work with. They turned out perfectly- no flavor difference at all.

    Thanks for a terrific healthy recipe, Beth!

    UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! I tried this recipe two nights (adding roasted mini peppers, and doubling the carrot and egg) and loved it so much that I made them again last night. Requires a little bit of elbow grease for the grating but so worth it! Thanks for sharing!

    These look great & it is what I always order when I go to Ruby Tuesdays. 2 Zucchini minis & that awesome salad bar. But, Ruby Tuesdays does NOT put onions in theirs. I know this b/c I’m allergic to onions & always have to check out the ingredients. I used garlic, & grated Parmesan. I didn’t use the Feta, b/c I didn’t have any at the time. I love it <3

    Hello Beth,
    First I want to thank you for creating a copy cat of the zucchini sliders because I absolutely love them! I have just one question, can the red pepper easily be substituted for the carrot? I really really like the flavor of the red pepper and feta together.

    Thank you!

    This is a good idea to trick our meat loving friends into indulging in a zucchini burger…unsuspecting “veggie haters” get more greens in their diet can be a surprisingly easy place to hide veggies. I like incorporating veggies in my patties with my juices http://www.juicingforhealthlifestyle.com

    Hey there! Thanks for the recipie it made a delicious dinner last night… I made a few adjustments and it turned out well so I thought I’d share…
    I replaced the flour with steel cut oats( ground with a food processor) since I’m staying away from gluten, and I didn’t have feta so I put some cheddar in there… They turned out amazing, but it didn’t stop there, we decided to make them into lettuce wraps instead of the bun and made a sauce to go on top.
    Tahini sauce:
    3 tbsp tahini
    1 lemon squeeze
    1-2 clove garlic minced
    1 Roma tomato diced really small
    Mix all ingredients together for a creamy sauce, add water for your preferred consistency
