Zucchini Rosti with Shredded Cheddar Cheese

A Quick yet Healthy meal is what a working mom needs sometimes…

As a working mom of 3 growing up kids, this dish is a go to recipe when I just feel like taking it easy and yet insist on a healthy meal for my loved ones.

I used a simple handheld shredder, get the zucchini done, get it salted for an hour, simple mixing and we are ready to pan fry. Minimalist for me!

I hope this dish relieve you when you need it…cheers
