Courgette Fritters



I'll be honest, courgettes can be pretty tasteless, but ‘jooje’ them up a little and you have a delicious lunch, starter or snack. Inspired by Middle Eastern flavours these are YUM.

Ingredients:

  • 200g Carrots grated

  • 500g (2 courgettes) grated

  • 1/4 tsp Chili flakes or to taste

  • ¼ tsp zaatar or to taste

  • 3 tbsp Dill

  • 4 tbsp chopped Flat leaf parsley

  • 1 small onion, very finely chopped

  • 2 spring onions finely sliced

  • 100g feta cheese

  • 1 egg

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 140 g Flour

  • Pinch of sea salt/himalayan

  • Rapeseed oil

  • 100 g Feta cheese

  • 200 g Greek yoghurt

Method:

  1. Wash and finely grate the courgettes. Put into a sieve or muslin cloth and mix with a pinch of salt. Close the cloth to squeeze the water out or leave the courgette to drain for 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile peel and finely grate the carrots and squeeze out any excess water. This is important to make them nice and crispy.

  3. Add the onion and spring onions to a bowl and add the herbs and the feta cheese.

  4. Next add the drained courgette and carrots and add the flour, egg, cracked black pepper, pinch of salt, zaatar, chili flakes, and mix until everything is well incorporated.

  5. Put a couple tablespoons of rapeseed oil in the pan and put a dollop of the mixture into the pan.

  6. Flatten them slightly and fry them for a couple of minutes on each side.

  7. Finish the remaining batter.

  8. Serve with big dollop of greek yoghurt mixed with fresh herbs and season with a touch of chilli. No more boring courgette. Sorry courgette lol.


Courgette however does contain very few calories and have a high water content.

Good source of vitamin C, and significant levels of potassium, which is key to controlling blood pressure. The skin is fibrous too!
