Bento Bites: Kabak Mucver

Kabak Mucver is a Turkish Mezze. Perfect for the bento bites category :) It is also the first recipe we tried from the I <3 groente book. You can make them as fritters or as little balls. We have made some fritter-like recipes before. But these were especially tasty because they were still soft inside without it feeling underdone.

Kabak Mucver (serves 2)
- 300 gr zucchini, grated
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- pinch of fresh chopped dill
- zest from 1/2 lemon
- 2 tbsp flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 125 gr Turkish yoghurt
- salt and pepper
- olive oil

Mix in a bowl the zucchini with spring onion, half the herbs, lemon zest, flour, and a bit salt and pepper. Add the beaten egg bit by bit until you have enough for a nice thick batter. (about 3/4th). Heat some olive oil in a pan, and scoop portions of batter in the pan, about the size of a ping pong ball. Press them slightly and bake them light brown on both sides. The trick is to not over bake them so they stay soft inside.
Mix the rest of the herbs with the yoghurt and add a pinch of salt. Serve alongside the kabak mucver.

  1. YUM!!!!! I love zucchini but sometimes have a tough time convincing the other folks in my house that they do, too. I bet they'd eat this right up.
