Zucchini Patties w/ Lemon Yogurt Sauce
Ok, I was craving this and had no idea how to make it. Made it up on the whim and LOVED it! My daughter liked to bunches too so SCORE! Fresh even though it's fried, the yogurt dressing makes it 100% better so it's 200% yummy!
zucchinis- 4 medium grated
minced garlic - 5 large cloves or 4 small violet buds
eggs - 4
wheat flour - .5 cup
potatoes - 3 small/medium half cooked
Turmeric - .5 tea spoon
Salnt and pepper to taste
Dried parsley - 1 teaspoon
High heating point oil like canola, grape seed etc.
Organic Lemon - zest of .5 lemon
Chives - 1 tablespoon minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Greek yogurt - 1 cup
Takes about 45-60 min to make
Serves 4-6 people
Zucchini flowers are fabulou to eat as well, raw, fried, stuffed or as a soup like in Mexico (sopa de flor de calabaza) You can try this recipe from "The Holy Enchilada" blog. I have yet to try it though i'm sure it's fab!
Grate your zucchini, I used the food processor takes 1 min!
Mince your garlic on a nice and sharp microplane, careful with your fingertips!
Half cook your potatoes, microwave or boil. whichever floats your boat! Grate and add to your mix.
Add your eggs
Add your wheat flour
Parsley, salt, pepper and turmeric.
Beat so it fluffs. Heat your oil and make your patties.
Mix your ingredients on your yogurt and top your patties and INDULGE! super yummy!.
I put my cold leftovers on a tortilla, (you can use a pita too, I just didn't have any otherwise I think it would be even better) Top it off with a generous portion of the yogurt dressing and
