  • 500 g of zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g of feta cheese
  • 75 aged white cheese such as cheddar or Norwegian aged white cheese
  • 20 g finely chopped parsley leaves (without thick stems)
  • 30g dry breadcrumbs/panko (found on the Asian food shelf)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 40g white sesame seeds (found on Asian grocery shelves), for sprinkling
  • Salt pepper

Here’s how you do it.

Preheat ovens to 225 degrees. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Grate the pumpkin on the coarse side of a raw food grater (or use a food processor with a coarse grater). Add half a teaspoon of salt before squeezing out the liquid.

Place the grated pumpkin in a kitchen towel or a large clean towel. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible until approx. 350 g of grated zucchini, mix for 4-5 minutes. NB! It is important to squeeze out as much liquid as possible for the finished result.

Mix grated pumpkin with egg, finely grated feta cheese, grated aged cheese, chopped parsley, breadcrumbs/panko, olive oil and approx. ½ teaspoon of salt (the amount of salt depends on how salty the cheese is) and coarsely ground pepper.

Spread the mixture on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in the center of the hot oven, until golden on top and slightly darker on the edges, 15-20 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into pieces. Tastes best lukewarm.
