total time
recipe type: savoury, lunch, dinner, main meal
cuisine: meditteranean, vegan
serves: 8 patties
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 100 grams tofu feta
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoon chopped mint
  • ½-1 teaspoon chopped red chilli
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 5-6 tablespoons mung bean or chickpea flour
  1. Grate the zucchini coarsely into a large bowl, add the salt and mix.
  2. Leave for 10 minutes, squeeze the zucchini and pour off the liquid. This is just so they are not too wet.
  3. Rinse the tofu feta under water.
  4. Crumble the tofu into small pieces into the bowl.
  5. Add all the other ingredients except the flour and mix.
  6. Add the flour 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture holds together. You may not need it all.
  7. Fry the patties in a lightly oiled pan over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. It should take 5-7 minutes per side until the centre is cooked, so don't have the heat too high.
It is vitally important that you wash the miso marinade from the tofu 'feta'. If you do not it will be inedibly salty. I forgot to do this on the first batch I made!
