Baked Zucchini and Potato Balls

HOW TO MAKE IT 

  • Grate raw zucchini, squeeze them well and transfer them to a bowl. 

  • Mash the potatoes, and chop the parsley or chervil.

  • Add the breadcrumbs (about 2 tbsp), the egg, salt, pepper, the mashed potatoes and the parsley to the bowl. 

  • Combine well. The mixture should be moist but still hold its shape when rolled into balls. If it is too sticky add a little extra breadcrumbs.

  • Place some breadcrumbs on a plate. Moisten your hands, and shape the mixture into neat, round balls. Place them on the plate and roll through until totally coated with breadcrumbs.

  • Oil a baking sheet, place the balls on in a single layer (not overcrowd the sheet). Sprinkle the surface of the balls with EVO oil.

  • Bake in a static oven pre-heated at 210-230 ° C for about 15-20 min. For the last few minutes, turn on the grill for a crunchy breading.
