These courgette nuggets are nice to be enjoyed as a snack, side or a starter. They are quick to make and consist of grated courgette, chilli, lemon and oak smoked tomatoes, so there's a hint of spice and smoke in them. These are quite similar to the courgette fritters that I normally make with a couple of more additions and also smaller. Have a look at my recipe.
2 garlic cloves
1 red chilli
Few oak smoked tomatoes
Squeeze of lemon
50 g grated cheddar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ cup breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil for frying
Chop the onion, chilli and garlic finely and grate the courgette.
Fry the onion, chilli and garlic for a few minutes in a pan and let cool. Then add them to the grated courgette.
Chop the oak smoked tomatoes and add them to the mix. Also add the grated cheese and season with lemon, salt and ground black pepper.
Add the egg and breadcrumbs, mix and shape nuggets from the mixture.
Fry the nuggets on both sides in hot oil until nicely browned.
Enjoy for example with a nice chipotle ketchup like I did.
