Doing them does not result in a greater effort to make meatballs and conventional ingredients, more of the same. More or less, the same, except the meat, of course. Then, I leave you the entire ingredient list to make at home these balls of zucchini. Do not miss a detail, because you Are very interesting!

INGREDIENTS for 4 people:

  • 5 courgettes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • 30g bread crumbs
  • chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Flour
  • Oil


1.- Grate the zucchini, with the peel included.

2.- We introduce this zest within a clean cloth. The locked well within the same, and we press. In the end, what you want is to lose the largest possible amount of water they contain.

3.- Put the zucchini because of no water in a bowl. Add the garlic cloves, the onion and the parsley finely chopped. In addition, we add the eggs, bread crumbs and cumin, mix all the ingredients with your hands until a homogeneous mass. If you see that you have been too “liquid” to shape them after, you can add a little more bread crumbs.

4.- We form small balls the size of a ping pong ball with the dough. The pass through flour and fry in plenty of oil. The idea is to fry enough so that the outer layer is golden brown, without allowing it to penetrate too much heat in its interior. That is to say that it will be a frying short but high temperature.

5.- Remove and place on absorbent paper.
