Crocchette di spinaci e Zucca-fu

Croquettes with spinach and Zucca-fu

Croquettes with spinach and Pumpkin-fu are one of the three recipes proposed by chef Francesco Basco during the last show cooking of the "N&B in Cucina" project dedicated to Pumpkin-fu.

Pumpkin-fu is a high-protein, soy-free tofu alternative made from pumpkin seeds. It has a nice mild flavor that absorbs your added flavors readily and a nice tofu-like texture.

Ingredients (about 8 servings) :

  • A packet of rice or corn breading
  • 250g of washed baby spinach
  • 200gr of Natural Pumpkin-fu
  • Salt, black pepper, nutmeg, extra virgin olive oil to taste


  1. Put the spinach in the blender together with the crumbled Zucca-fu with a drop of oil, a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Blend everything until you have a workable mixture.
  2. Then form the croquettes and roll them in the breadcrumbs, bake with a little oil at 160° until golden brown. They can also be browned in a pan with a drop of oil.
