Zucchini burgers

For 10 (small-ish) burgers you will need:

500 grams finely diced zucchini
2 tbsp olive oil
75 grams buffalo mozzarella
50 grams fresh breadcrumbs
2 cloves finely diced garlic
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 lightly beaten egg
some finely chopped parsley
50 grams grated Parmesan
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
little flour for dusting


Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.

Heat the oil and lightly fry the diced zucchini about 5 minutes. You need texture, so do not over-fry them. Set on several sheets of kitchen paper to absorb the oil.
Add the zucchini into a mixing bowl and add the buffalo mozzarella. Break with the back of a wooden spoon.
Add the breadcrumbs, garlic and lemon zest and stir to combine. At the end, add the lightly beaten egg, Parmesan and parsley and season with pepper and salt.
With damp hands shape small burgers, dust them with little flour on both sides and put on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Bake for about 10 minutes on each side, or until golden.
