Zucchini Roulade – Recipe
Grate the zucchini finely, salt and let rest for 20 minutes. The vegetable will release some water, pour it out.
Add eggs, sour cream, flour and a pinch of pepper and mix well.
Place a baking sheet on a baking tray and spread the zucchini mixture evenly on it.
Preheat the oven on 180 °C/356 °F and bake for 20 minutes. Then let it cool down completely.
Mix the cheese with crushed garlic and smear it on the zucchini dough. Sprinkle with a little nutmeg and some parsley.
Slice the tomatoes in fine slices. Pulpy tomatoes with less water are the most suitable for this recipe.
Place the tomato slices all over the dough leaving just a 3-finger-space on one of the shorter sides.
Use the baking sheet to roll the roulade.
The seam should be on the bottom.
Pack the zucchini roulade in the baking sheet and foil and let it rest for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
Then slice the roulade…
…and serve cold!
