Zucchini Croquettes: a delicious way to eat vegetables

This recipe is of course inspired by those of Ricardo and à la di Stasio , but I really adapted it according to the ingredients that I generally have on hand, and also according to my son's tastes.

This dish comes back on the menu at least once a month at our house since we LOVE the crunchiness of the croquettes, their freshness and it allows us to eat vegetables without really realizing it.

A vegetarian option for a weeknight meal or a tasty starter

It is a tasty vegetarian alternative for a weeknight meal, as a starter or as an accompaniment to meat or fish. Here, they are dipped in spicy mayo, but you can choose the sauce of your choice. They are also delicious as is.

If you have difficulty getting your children to eat vegetables, this is certainly an interesting option. Zucchini croquettes require a little preparation, but the taste is definitely worth it. It's a simple and tasty way to eat vegetables.

I have personally never tried cooking zucchini croquettes in the oven, I really like frying them well in oil, but if you feel like it and you want to reduce your fat intake, you can certainly try bake in the oven at 400 ° F for about twenty minutes, turning them halfway through cooking. I'd be surprised if it wasn't just as delicious.

Gaël and I eat about 2 pancakes per meal, so that gives us a dinner for two + a lunch. Adjust the recipe according to your family's appetite or whether you serve the croquettes as a starter, side or main meal.

Je les fais cuire dans l’air fryer. Une bonne option sans corps gras pour la cuisson.


Personnellement, je fais cuire les croquettes de courgettes au four pour réduire l’apport en gras et cela donne de bons résultats.
