vegetable galettes from courgettes, tomatoes and sweet peppersTomato Croquettes Ingredients:

  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 3 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large red onion, grated
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh spearmint
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil, for frying

Directions:

 

 

Cut each of the tomatoes into four pieces and scoop out the seeds. Chop the tomatoes into small cubes and place in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and let the tomatoes sit for 30 minutes.

After the 30 minutes, place the tomatoes into a large bowl with the feta, onion, parsley, spearmint, and oregano. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper together in a small dish. Add the flour mixture to the tomato mixture and toss the tomatoes gently with a fork to evenly distribute.

Add enough olive oil to a non-reactive frying pan to cover the bottom. Heat on medium-high. Drop the mixture in tablespoonful amounts into the hot oil and flatten them slightly with a spatula. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on one side until its golden brown. Flip onto the other side and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the additional mixture. Remove the croquettes from the oil and drain on paper towels.
