Zucchini is A Tasty Meat Alternative…

Zucchini, with its mild flavor and tender texture, serves as an excellent canvas for culinary creativity. In this article, we’ll explore a simple yet delectable zucchini recipe that will tantalize your taste buds and make you forget all about meat.


To whip up this delightful dish, gather the following ingredients:

2 large zucchinis
Salt and black pepper
3 eggs
100g (3.5 oz) cheese
Italian herbs
Red paprika
100g (3.5 oz) breadcrumbs
50g (1.8 oz) flour
Olive oil
3 pickled cucumbers
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt or sour cream
2 garlic cloves

Preparing the Zucchini

Make slits in the zucchinis with a fork.

Cut them into 4 pieces or more, depending on your preference.

Sprinkle salt and black pepper generously over the zucchini pieces.

Let them sit for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
Creating the Egg Mixture

While the zucchini is resting, prepare the egg mixture:

Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and beat them until well-combined.

Grate the cheese and add it to the eggs along with Italian herbs and a pinch of red paprika.

Mix everything thoroughly to create a flavorful egg mixture.

Once the zucchini has absorbed the seasonings, it’s time to coat and fry them:

Roll each zucchini piece in flour, ensuring it’s evenly coated.

Dip the floured zucchini into the egg mixture, making sure it’s fully covered.

Roll the zucchini in breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere them.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat.

Fry the coated zucchini pieces covered for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.
