  1. Wash the zucchini. With the peel on, shred the zucchini using a grater into a large bowl. If the zucchini are very watery, you can wrap them in a clean kitchen towel or paper towel and squeeze out the juice.
  2. Add the remaining vegetables into the bowl with the zucchini. Add the breadcrumbs and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg substitute and lite mayonnaise.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the zucchini mixture and toss together. Season with salt substitute, pepper, paprika, and lemon juice. Form the mixture into small patties.
  5. Spray the skillet with cooking spray and place on the stove over medium heat. Add the patties and cook for 5 to 10 minutes on each side until crisp.
  6. Serve hot on the whole-grain rolls or over salad with a small amount of your favorite lite salad dressing.
