Servings: 24 mini muffins


  • ½ large zucchini
  • 300 g cauliflower
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • Salt to taste


  • Shred the zucchini and place it in a mixing bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, mix and leave for 10 minutes.
  • Put the zucchini inside a cheesecloth and squeeze out all the water making pressure with your hands. When all the water has been squeezed out, place the zucchini back in the mixing bowl.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C and coat the muffin tray with some olive oil.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and transfer into a food processor. Blitz for a few seconds until the consistency of the cauliflower is similar to rice and add to the mixing bowl.
  • Heat some oil in a pan and add the onion finely chopped. Stir fry for a few minutes until it has softened and add the onion with the zucchini and the cauliflower.
  • Add into the mixing bowl the rest of the ingredients: eggs, fresh shredded nutmeg and the flour. Combine all the ingredients until the mixture is uniform.
  • With a spoon and your hands form small balls and transfer them into the muffin tray. We use a small muffin tray so the bites are smaller and cook faster.
  • Bake the bites for 30-40 minutes or until golden.
