Zucchini Cheddar Scones

1 small zucchini, grated
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 tsp. sugar
1 Cup old cheddar cheese
¼ Cup finely chopped chives
1 Cup buttermilk*

Preheat oven to 400ºF.  Grate zucchini into a large bowl.  Add flour, salt, baking soda, sugar, cheddar, and chives, stir to combine.  Using a fork, stir in buttermilk until a soft dough forms (will be sticky).  Turn out onto a floured surface and pat into 2 cm thick piece. Cut into 9 pieces and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 min until lightly browned.

*Buttermilk substitution:  Add 1 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice into a 1 Cup measure, fill with milk and stir.  Let sit 2-5 minutes until it sours.  Use in place of buttermilk.
