Easy dinner

We keep our food easy and healthy. We use a lot of olive oil, and fresh ingredients. I would like to share this recipe I found in an old cookbook for a really easy, healthy, yummy zucchini and mint patties:

5 green zucchinis with peel • 2 teaspoons of salt • 1/2 an onion finely chopped • 2 mushed garlic cloves • a pinch of nutmeg • fresh ground black pepper • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped mint • 1/2 a cup of finely chopped parsley or cilantro • 2 eggs • 1 cup of bread crumbs • olive oil for frying

1. Grind the zucchini to a colander. Add the salt and leave for 1/2 an hour. Squeeze liquids out of the zucchinis and transfer to a bowl.
2. Add all other ingredients and 1/2 of the bread crumbs. Put the other half on a flat plate.
3. Make small and flat patties from the mixture, and dip them in the bread crumbs.
4. Heat the olive oil, make sure it's 1/4" high. Brown the patties on both sides, 3-4 minutes on each side.

You can serve with some cold yogurt.

Bon appétit.
