Zucchini is a delicious vegetable and can be cooked in many ways. Most often, housewives choose to make pumpkin meatballs, the recipe being a simple one and the preparation as well.
What do you start with? With the preparation of the main ingredient. Take a grater, put the zucchini on it, on the largest side, and sprinkle a little salt on them, mix and leave for 10 minutes. Thus, they will leave the water and it will be drained before moving on to adding the other ingredients needed to make pumpkin meatballs.
Now is the time to prepare the cheese, which will be incorporated into these pumpkin meatballs. She is also on the big grater. You can choose sheep, cow or goat cheese, as you like. Next, add the finely chopped garlic, also on a grater or with a special utensil.
To continue these pumpkin meatballs, you must return to the mixture from the first stage. Put it in a strainer and press well with a spoon, to leave as much liquid as possible and to squeeze the pumpkins as well as possible.
Return to the bowl in which you have the telemeau for these pumpkin meatballs, and over it add the drained zucchini, eggs, chopped parsley and pepper. Mix everything as well as possible to homogenize, then add the flour, gradually. Incorporate it with care and patience. If you drained the pumpkins well, you may not need the full amount of flour. You will notice the texture, because it must be well enough tied to be able to model these pumpkin meatballs as easily as possible.
The final step is to fry these pumpkin dishes. Put oil in a pan, let it heat up, then shape the meatballs and put them in it. Leave them until nicely browned on both sides.
You can make pumpkin meatballs in the oven, if you want a healthier option, in which you use very little or no oil. They are placed on baking paper and left until well browned. If you have an oven that does not bake on top, they will have to be turned over.
These pumpkin meatballs can be served with a spicy tomato sauce or a tzatziki, but they also go well as a garnish for various dishes.
If you want to do everything as quickly as possible, you can use an electric grater to prepare the zucchini and cheese. Thus the cooking time will be shortened by about 10 minutes.
In addition to these pumpkin meatballs, from this vegetable you can also make zucchini with chicken, zucchini slices, ratatouille, salad, cream soup, moussaka, tart, etc.
