Turkey Zucchini Cakes Recipe

turkey zucchini cakesI had to share this recipe from my friend and ultimate nutrition expert, Carol Green from “Taste Of Healing.”  She has shared a bunch of her “gut healing and stomach friendly” recipes so that I can work to heal my digestive issues.  (TMI???)

I thought that these turkey cakes would be dry and flavorless (and how would they stick together without an egg??) but turns out they are delicious and make a yummy, quick snack or meal and freeze really well too.  I hope you like them!
