Courgette Fritters with Feta





Have I ever told you how much I love potato fritters? No? Oh, I do love them so much! Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved potato fritters. It's not the healthiest food, I know. Recently I added a new fav to my favourite food collection - courgette fritters. I call it a healthier variation of potato fritters. They must be healthier, because courgette is very healthy vegetable, right? Well, maybe they are not a bit more healthier that potato fritters, however they are definitely equally delicious! And they are so easy to make!






Courgette Fritters with Feta

500g courgettes, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 eggs
1tbsp chopped fresh mint
150g feta, crumbled
5 tbsp plain flour
freshly grated black pepper
salt
olive oil for frying

Put the grated courgette in a colander, sprinkle with salt, mix and let stand for 20-30 minutes. Squeeze out any excess liquid. In a medium bowl, combine the courgette, shallot, garlic, eggs, mint, feta and flour. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Ladle spoonful of the batter into the pan for each fritter and cook in batches for 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer cooked fritters on a paper towel to drain excess oil from them.

  20. I just found this recipe via Pinterest. I'm getting ready to make these right now. Just waiting for 30 min after salting. It's only me and I'm not going to be able to eat these in 1 sitting. Do they keep well? What would be the best way to reheat?

    1. Hi Jennifer, you have a few options. First, don't fry them all and keep the batter in your fridge, it will keep for one day. Just stir it before frying to combine all ingredients again. Second, fry them all, freeze them and than bake them after defrosting. And the last option is to keep them in the fridge and then shortly reheat them in the oven or microwave. I also really like them at room temperature.

  21. Hi Jennifer! I just saw the pic for this recipe on Pinterest and I came straight to your blog to ask you an odd question: Could you share the name of the pattern/manufacturer of your fork? That pattern is lovely and I'd love to know who it's by. Thanks!

    1. Hi, I got the fork from my grandma. It's quite an old fork and doesn't say the name of the manufacturer. Sorry I can't help.

    1. Hi, I fry the fritters in a non-stick skillet so I only use a table spoon of oil or so. I don't like them very greasy.
