Zucchini Tots
« on: March 25, 2017, 08:04:42 am »
These little morsels are from here, converted easily to the Thermomix with my variation making 20 snack sized bites http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/07/zucchini-tots.html

1 medium zucchini (mine weighed 215 grams) cut into 5 cm pieces
25 gms spring onion cut into 3 cm pieces
65 gms tasty cheese, cubed
25 gms breadcrumbs, I used homemade
1/4 tsp chicken stock powder
1 egg
S & P to taste

Preat oven to 200 degrees Celcius.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Place zucchini and spring onion into TM bowl. Chop 2 sec/speed 5

Place the mixture into a clean tea towel or a chux and squeeze firmly until all the juice has been removed.

Place the mix into a medium sized bowl.

Add the cheese to the TM bowl and grate 4 sec/speed 7

Add the cheese to the zucchini mixture along with the breadcrumbs, stock powder, egg & S & P to taste.
Mix well until well combined.

Form dessert measuring spoonfuls of the mixture into tiny croquettes and place onto the lined tray.

Bake 15 - 20 minutes, keep an eye on them after the 15 minute mark. I didn't turn mine at all.

Footnote: These are even nice eaten cold so would be great for a child's lunchbox.

Sounds really good Judy, thanks for converting, need to give it a go... best part is that they need to be baked and not deep fried :)

These look good Judy, and even better that they are baked and not fried.
