Zucchini Dinner

So tonight before dinner we got a box with fresh vegetables from the farm where was included zucchini, tomatoes and cucumbers! So I thought of using all of them and I did a cucumber and tomato salad and for the zucchini I decided to try a recipe I found! In order to make it healthier I decided to cook in the oven instead of frying like it was suppose in the original recipe.



  • 450g Courgettes, grated / 450g de courgete ralada
  • 30g Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese / 30 gramas de queijo parmesão ralado
  • 2 eggs, beaten / 2 ovos, batidos
  • 4 tbsp Whole Wheat Flour / 4 colheres de sopa de farinha
  • Salt and Pepper to taste / sal e pimenta a gosto


  1. Combine the courgettes with the Parmesan, eggs, flour, salt and pepper. / Misturar a courgete com o queijo parmesão, ovos, farinha, sal e pimenta.P1080231 P1080232 P1080233 P1080234
  2. Heat the oven at 200 celcious and in an oven tray place the mixture making balls about 2 tablespoons size each. Let it cook until turns brown (about 6 minutes). / Ligar o forno a 200ºC and num tabuleiro de forno colocar a mistura fazendo bolas com cerca de 2 colheres de sopa cada. Deixar cozinhar até ficar acastanhado.

And it is ready to serve! / E está pronto a servir!

In the original site where I found the recipe it says that each has about 38 calories and this is the value for the fried ones so I believe if you do it in the oven the value is even lower, so it is a good way to eat veggies! / No site original onde encontrei a receita diz que cada bolinho tem cerca de 38 calorias e isto é o valor sendo fritos por isso acredito que no forno o valor seja ainda mais baixo! Assim sendo acredito que é de facto uma boa maneira de comer legumes!

What do you think? 🙂

Have you tried this recipe before? What suggestions would you give? 🙂

  1. I made something similar last night, except with yellow squash! We call these fritters in the U.S. I fried mine, so I’ll have to try baking them next time! 🙂

    • yes! The one I found online was also fried and also called fritters! I tried to fried some to compare and honestly and I think they don’t loose flavor by being on the oven! The only thing is that they don’t get as crunchy. But I believe it is still worth to try on the oven 😉 I have to try with squash next time, it sounds good! 😀
