Crocchette di zucchine

Crocchette di zucchine.jpg

Again something Greek inspired. Those simple appetisers are quick and you wouldn’t find anybody who dislike them (except my father, but that’s because he hates courgettes over anything else!).

4 courgettes
1 onion

Mint leaves

Basil leaves
Salt and pepper

4 egg yolks

Bread crumbs

100 g of grated parmesan

Grate the courgettes very finely and salt them. Let them rest for 10 minutes, then drain and squeeze them to throw all the excess water.
Add the onion, grated, them mix together with the egg yolks, the minced herbs, 100 g of parmesan and some bread crumbs, until perfectly combined.
Heat good quality frying oil, and add spoonful of the courgettes mixture, frying until golden.
Sprinkle with salt and serve right away.

    These look so good! I can see them as appetizers, but I could probably eat them as a meal as well!

    Yum! There’s so much zucchini available right now, I’m always looking for new and inspired ways to prepare them. This I’ll have to try!

    oh, I made something simila once, but with grated feta cheese in stead of parmesan ,you should try it, I still remember how awfully good they were 😉
