recipe type: savoury, lunch, dinner, main meal
serves: 8 patties
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 300 grams medium to firm tofu (not silken)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 spring onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped coriander
  • 1 cm piece of ginger grated
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1½ tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 4-5 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. Crumble the tofu into small pieces into the bowl.
  4. Add all the other ingredients except the flour and mix.
  5. Add the flour 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture holds together. You may not need it all.
  6. 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.
