Ingredients

  • 1/4 kg potatoes, peeled and cut into equal sizes
  • 1/4 kg zucchini (at least), a medium-sized zucchini would be ok
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 lemon, grated zest
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (plus 1 tbsp for sprinkling)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Boil potatoes until soft.
  • While potatoes are boiling, peel and grate the zucchini.
  • Remove the water out of the grated zucchini by using a cheesecloth. Do it in batches for easier handling.
  • Place the squeezed, grated zucchini in a medium to large mixing bowl.
  • Once the potatoes are ready, drain the water from them. Use a potato ricer to mash the potatoes and add them in the mixing bowl, with the zucchini.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the 1 tablespoon of breadcrumbs for sprinkling.
  • Mix, just enough to combine.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C (375°F).
  • Take a tablespoon of the mixture, roll it into a ball and flatten the ball on top of a tray, lined with a baking sheet. 
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top of the bites.
  • Place baking tray in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they get darker in color.
  • Serve.
