Saving at home – Lebanese zucchini croquettes (Lebanon)


Hi everyone!

Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE
What better time than this to prepare these delicious zucchini croquettes? You may wonder what they are different from the typical croquettes. These are cooked in sesame seed oil, that is tahineh (you can easily find it in supermarkets and ethnic shops).
It is a somewhat denser oil than normal (it is often used to season salads or to prepare hummus).
Its strong taste is what will make the difference.

Let’s start:


Ingredients for 4 people: 600 grams of courgettes – 2 eggs – 100 grams of pecorino cheese – 150 grams of breadcrumbs – dried chili pepper – sesame seed oil – salt and pepper


First clean, wash and boil the zucchini in boiling salted water for about 7-8 minutes.

Drain, chop in a mixer and let cool in a bowl.

Add the whole eggs, a little pepper, grated cheese and two tablespoons of breadcrumbs in order to make the mixture more solid.

Mix well, stirring with a wooden spoon and form balls as large as a walnut that you will then pass into the breadcrumbs.

All you need to do is fry the zucchini croquettes in a pan with plenty of sesame oil.

As soon as they get a nice golden color, remove them and pass them with a skimming ladle on paper towels.

They are excellent served hot or just warm.

Enjoy your meal!
