Mini Veggie Bites

By Debe Pendice

  • 2/3 cups grated carrot

  • 2/3 cups grated zucchini

  • 2/3 cups grated potato

  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • salt to taste

  • freshly ground pepper to taste

  • vegetable oil for frying

  1. Squeeze out excess moisture from vegetables: the best way is to lay them on several sheets of paper towel and cover with more paper and press down. Place the vegetables together in a bowl, add the flour and the seasonings and mix well.

  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add heaped tablespoons of the mixture, flattening them with a fork to make spiky round croquettes. Fry for 5 minutes, turning halfway through. They should be golden on the outside and cooked inside.

  3. Serves 16

Does anyone know a way to modify this recipe so that it can be baked rather than fried. Or broiled on high heat to create that crunch? Anyone tried it?

It sounds great, but I'm not a fan of fry foods. Ever since i had my gal bladder removed any slight chance of tasting fryed foods it makes me sick to me stomach. All i can do is just imagine how great it would taste. I think this is the safest way for me. HAHAHAHAHA

What a great side dish or snack! It has been a while since I cooked something like this. It is excellent that so little flour is needed.
