Simply Exquisite App: Zucchini Patties from Einat Admony's "Balaboosta"



Balaboosta

This dish is so incredibly simple to make, but the results are exquisite. Serve with plain yogurt or, better, with Wild West Dressing.... In a pinch, bread crumbs from store-bought challah are fine too.

Serves 4 to 6

3 medium zucchini

1 medium yellow onion

1 leek, white and light green parts only, finely chopped

21⁄2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

1⁄3 cup crumbs made from Challah (page 24)

1 large egg, beaten

Canola oil

Kosher salt

1. Finely grate the zucchini and onion. Wrap the grated vegetables in a clean dish towel and twist both ends over the kitchen sink to squeeze out all the excess moisture.

2. Combine the zucchini, onion, leek, dill, and bread crumbs in a large bowl. Add the egg and use your hands to mix everything together. Shape the mixture into 2-inch patties.

3. Add 1/2 inch of oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Cook the zucchini patties in the hot oil until both sides are golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season with salt.
