A few months ago we posted a recipe for zucchini falafel patties that we based on a patty I ate on a Berlin food market. We already told you there that the zucchini falafel patties were not really likes the ones in Berlin but still really good in their own way! Well, you had to wait for it a few months, but here is the version that is very close to the cookies I had in Berlin. The only difference I can think of is that these are not deep-fried but just fried in a frying pan (you might even be able to bake them in the oven) which makes for a slightly healthier version as well.
The recipe is quite simple: you mix the ingredients in a bowl and cook them into cookies. We served them with a simple spinach, tomato and radish salad and a homemade tzatziki which tastes absolutely amazing with the cookies! It is a perfect late-summer dinner to enjoy the last good days before we are going into the darker days again, at least, that is what we did. Enjoy it while you can :)
Adapted from Host the Toast
2 handfuls of spinach
75 gr of feta
2 sprigs of mint
Small bunch of dill
1 clove of garlic
75-100 gr flour (we used rye flour but any flour will work)
Salt and pepper to taste
(Olive) oil for frying
To serve: tzatziki (recipe here!), green salad (for example spinach, tomato and radish).
Grate the zucchini, place in a sieve and sprinkle salt over it. Leave it on the side for around 10 minutes.. Roughly chop the spinach and finely chop the herbs and garlic. Add everything to a big bowl. Crumble in the feta and add to the bowl together with the eggs and flour. Lastly, add the grated zucchini. Mix everything together.
In a frying pan, add 1 tbsp of oil. Once warmed, add scoops of batter to the pan to form cookies. Cook for around 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. When done, place the cookies on paper towels. Eat warm with tzatziki and green salad.
