Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 cups diced zucchini
  • 1 medium red onion, diced, divided
  • 3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups corn kernels (thawed if frozen)

Heat oven to 400°. In a bowl, combine tomatoes, zucchini, 1/2 onion, garlic, jalapeño, 1/4 tsp salt and oil; toss to coat. Spread on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; roast, turning once, until tomatoes and zucchini are light brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Toss with 1/4 cup cilantro and 1 tbsp juice; set aside. In a second bowl, combine flour, cumin, baking powder and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Add egg, remaining 1 tbsp juice and 1/2 cup water; stir until smooth. Add corn and remaining 1/2 onion and 1/4 cup cilantro. Coat a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Form 1/4 cup corn mixture into a patty; repeat with remaining corn mixture to form 12 patties. Working in batches of 3 and coating pan with cooking spray as needed, cook patties, turning once, until brown, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Divide patties and salsa among 4 plates. Makes 4 servings.
