Ingridients for the courgette patties:
- 750g courgettes
- 150g ricotta
- 70g pecorino cheese or 2 tablespoons yeast flakes
- 220g breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 50 ml MANI Virgin Olive Oil
- Breadcrumbs for breading
- A little nutmeg
- Flour for shaping
Ingridients for the yogurt dip:
Wash and roughly grate the courgettes. Squeeze well in a cloth so that as much liquid as possible escapes.Die Zucchini waschen und grob raspeln. In einem Tuch gut ausdrücken, damit möglichst viel Flüssigkeit austritt.
Mix the courgette grates well with ricotta, pecorino or yeast flakes, breadcrumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg. The mixture should be relatively firm.
Flour your hands and form 12 balls from the mixture. Flatten them slightly and roll them in breadcrumbs.
Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the balls on both sides until golden brown.
For the dip, mix the yoghurt, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth and top with olive oil.
A fresh salad can also be served with this!
