Zucchini Nuggets

Zucchini Nuggets

Suggested material offered in store


4 zucchini, sliced and pan fried in a little oil

2 cups of bread (white part of any bread will do)

¼ cup of milk

150 gr cooked prosciutto or mortadella

1 egg

¼ cup parmesan

¼ cup bread crumbs

1 minced garlic clove

¼ cup parsley, chopped

Bread crumbs (for breading)



Oil for frying


Soak the white of the bread in milk.

Using a food processor, puree zucchini and prosciutto.

Transfer to a bowl with bread and egg yolk.

Add parmesan, parsley and garlic to the mixture and knead (if the mixture is too sticky, add parmesan or bread crumbs).

Form the nuggets, sprinkle with flour and dip in the egg whites and in the bread crumbs.

In a frying pan, fry the nuggets in the vegetable oil.

Brown on each side.

Drain with a spatula and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.

Serve hot with Stefano's Arrabiata sauce. A real treat!
