Zucchini Fritters (BBQ Week)

One of our favourite side dishes of the week: Quick, easy & tasty!
We’ve paired Zucchini Fritters with our garlic & herb chicken skewers.

Zucchini Fritters 


Ingredients (makes 6-8 fritters)
1 medium zucchini, trimmed either side
1/2 medium onion
1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp finely chopped fresh oregano
Salt and ground pepper, to season
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Extra-virgin olive oil, for frying
Plain greek style yogurt, for serving

Zucchini Fritters ingredients

1. Preheat Uuni for 10-15 minutes
2. Grate zucchini, using the largest grater holes, then dry off in a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with onion.
3. Mix together zucchini, cheese, onion, herbs and flour, seasoning with salt and pepper.
4. Preheat sizzler pan with extra virgin olive oil then add beaten egg into the mixture and combine (only if cooking straight away).

5. Remove the sizzler from Uuni and begin to add the mixture, 2 tbsp per fritter. You should be able to add 2-3 fritters per pan. Flatten each fritter slightly, using a spatula. Cook until golden brown (1-2 mins each side) and then place on a paper towel.
6. Serve with Uunified veg and greek style yoghurt – we threw in some vine tomatoes and a baby pepper stuffed with mozzarella for 2-3 minutes.

Olive, Sundried Tomato & Rocket Pizza with Parmesan

This classic veggie pizza is sure to increase your popularity. Not just with vegetarians, but also with carnivores, omnivores, and (who knows) maybe even the ladies as well!

Classic dough
Classic sauce
Sundried tomatoes
Mozzarella, sliced
Parmesan shavings

First, light up your Uuni.
Prepare your pizza peel with a sprinkling of flour, and spread your classic dough on top. Follow this with a few spoons of classic tomato sauce, and some slices of mozzarella.
Next add the olives and sundried tomatoes. Place the pizza into the hot Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. While it’s cooking, you can quickly wash your rocket leaves, and peel a few parmesan shavings into a small bowl.
Remove the pizza from the heat and cover with a mess of parmesan curls and rocket leaves.
Season with black pepper.

Roast Veg and Goat’s Cheese Pizza

We are now entering the realm of spring and summer recipes, and oh what a lovely time of year it is for fresh produce! Let’s all hope for a long summer ahead, with plenty of opportunities to fire up the Uuni with friends and family. Here’s a light, colourful and vegetarian pizza recipe to share with them!

Classic dough
Classic sauce
Mixed peppers, sliced
Half a small aubergine, sliced
1 small courgette, sliced
2 tbs goat’s cheese
Olive oil

First light up the Uuni.
Now put your sliced peppers, courgette and aubergine into a small baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season.
Put them into the hot Uuni and allow to roast for a couple of minutes, rotating as the veg begins to brown.
Remove from the heat.
Now flour your pizza peel and spread your classic dough over the top, followed by some classic tomato sauce.
Next add a few dollops of goat’s cheese and your ready-roasted mixed veg.
Slide the pizza into the Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
