Appetizers Roasted zucchini’s and cheese patties by Alex Bayev August 8, 2022 Published: August 8, 2022Last Updated on April 17, 2023 1.2K views 1.2K Today I want to share a simple seasonal recipe for cooking zucchini or zucchini with cheese in the oven. But this time, it will not be a main dish, but an appetizer. Oven-baked zucchini and cheese are light and not too calorie-dense, and they cook up in no time. It is best to bake them before serving, but they do not lose much in flavor when they are cold. Such a dish is nutritious, delicious and healthy. The zucchini are tender on the inside and appetizing, ruddy and cheesy on the outside. The perfect accompaniment to zucchini with cheese would be a whipped feta or dzajiki sauce, but if you are too lazy to make the sauce, take any sauce you like – ketchup, mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, etc. ⏱ Cooking time — 40 minutes overall. Includes 10 minutes of preparation and cooking + 30 minutes unattended. 🥣 Ingredients 🍽 For 4 servings: 2 zucchini 100 g (3,5 oz) cheese 1 egg 1 tsp. oregano 1 tsp. onion powder pinch of salt Equipment: grater 🔪Step by step Directions Preheat the oven to 200 °C / 400 °F, top+down mode. Take 2 zucchini, cut off the ends of the tails. Grate the zucchini on a coarse grater. The resulting straw of grated zucchini transfer to a colander. Salt with a pinch of salt, mix well and leave for about 15 minutes to let it run dry. Meanwhile, grate 100 g (3,5 oz) of cheese on a coarse grater. You can use any cheese you like or that you have in the fridge. Transfer the cheese to a bowl. After 15 minutes, squeeze the zucchini with your hands of excess juice and add to the bowl with grated cheese. In a bowl add 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp dried garlic to the zucchini and cheese. Mix all the ingredients well. Into the mixture beat 1 egg. Mix everything until homogeneous. Form the mixture into small oval cutlets in your hands. To do this, take about 1 tbsp. of the mixture and squeeze out the excess juice again. In your hands, form a neat cutlet and place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place the zucchini cakes with cheese in a preheated 200°C / 400°F oven for about 25 minutes, until nicely golden and crusty on top. Serve the finished zucchini cheese appetizer with your favorite sauce, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, or zajiki.
