Ingredients for 6 – 8 Zucchini Patties:

…for the patties:

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 1 egg
  • 75 grams of feta cheese
  • 25 grams Parmesan
  • 60 grams of breadcrumbs
  • 40 grams of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped dill & parsley
  • Oil for frying
  • Salt & peppers

…for the tzatziki:

  • 125 grams of curd
  • 125 grams of Greek cream yogurt
  • 1 – 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped dill
  • Olive oil
  • White wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper

Kitchen Helper/Gadgets:

  • Grater
  • Mixing bowl
  • Garlic press
  • Clean kitchen towel

Coarsely grate zucchini with a rasp & give the zucchini in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt over the zucchini rasp and mix well together, then put aside for 30 minutes. Crumble feta cheese. Finely grate Parmesan. Peel onion and chop finely.

…for the tzatziki:

Meanwhile, for the tzatziki halve ½ cucumber lengthwise and with a spoon remove the seeds. Coarsely grate the scraped cucumber with a rasp & give the cucumber rasp along with 125 grams of curd and 125 grams of Greek cream yogurt in a bowl. Press 1 clove of garlic to the cucumber, also add 1 tablespoon finely chopped dill & season everything with a drizzle of olive oil, a dash of white wine vinegar, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper, then set aside until serving.

…for the zucchini patties:

After 30 minutes, pour off the leaked zucchini water and overthrow the zucchini rasp on a clean kitchen towel. Merge the ends of the kitchen towel & vigorously squeeze out the zucchini over the sink, to press out the excess water.

Then give the zucchini along with 1 egg, 60 grams of bread crumbs, 40 grams of flour, 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley and 2 tablespoons finely chopped dill back into the mixing bowl. Finally add the finely chopped onion, crumbled feta cheese and Parmesan cheese, also season well with pepper. Mix all ingredients with your hands until well combined and you got a firm but still slightly sticky mass.

After that form 6 – 8 patties from the zucchini mixture & heat up a large frying pan adding a dash of oil. Fry the zucchini patties for about 4 – 5 minutes each side over medium heat until golden brown.

Best serve the zucchini patties with the homemade tzatziki and any little salad.

Bon Appetite!

  1. Wow die sind richtig gut, ich habe statt Fetakäse und Parmesan normalen Gouda genommen, da ich beides nicht da hatte, aber wie gesagt, sehr sehr Lecker 🙂
