Joining in once again with Linda for a Tuesday night vego challenge. Linda has some beaut looking bean burgers tonight and we're having zucchini and corn patties served up with a crisp garden salad. At this time of year just about everything has zucchini in it and these patties are favourite way of using them up. Just to vary it a bit and because we have the corn fresh from the garden we are adding corn to the batter.
1 cup grated zucchini
1 tspn salt
1 egg lightly beaten
pinch of chilli to taste
1 cup plain flour ( we use wholemeal)
1 tblspn oil
2/3 cup tepid water
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
other vegies on hand ( corn for us tonight)
Add salt to grated zucchini and mix it through, set aside to draw out moisture in zucchini. Add chilli to lightly beaten egg. In a separate bowl mix flour with oil, working oil into flour with the back of a wooden spoon. Add enough water to make a firm dough. Add undrained zucchini.Add more water if required to make a soft dough ( like fritter batter). Add any other vegies now eg.corn, chopped red capsicum or peas and the cheese.
Place spoonfuls of batter in to shallow oil in frypan.
And serve with a fresh garden salad...
We find this a very quick and easy meal, nourishing and satisfying!
