This is one of my favorite recipes without second thoughts. I cannot even count how many vegetable croquettes I can eat. Basically there is a main recipe for vegetable croquettes in which you can do some amendments or change the basic ingredient. For example this time I used as main ingredient some spring onions but I could use also spinach or zucchini. This is an awesome receipt not only for those who choose vegetarian but also as an excellent appetizer for ouzo!!! 


500 gr. spring onions 
200 gr. feta cheese
2 tomatoes 
1 egg
250 gr. flour 
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. chopped dill
2 tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 tsp. salt 
A pinch of pepper
A pinch of oregano
Vegetable oil for frying


Wash and chop finely the spring onions. Salt them and put them in a strainer about thirty minutes to remove some of its liquid. Let's continue with the preparation of the rest ingredients. Cut the feta cheese and the tomatoes into very small cubes. Mix the baking powder with the flour. Then wring the onions with your hands to remove their liquids. Put all the ingredients in a big bowl and stir well.
If your mixture is too dry, pour some water; if it is too watery, add some flour.

In a frying pan pour the vegetable oil until it covers its bottom. When oil heats enough, take a spoonful of the mixture and put onto the pan.
Cook on both sides until it goldens.
Before you serve the croquettes, put them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.

Good luck! Καλή σας όρεξη!!
