Greek Zucchini Fritters (Recipe)


✅ 1 1/2 pound about 700 grams zucchini washed (not peeled)

✅ 2 eggs

✅ 3-4 ounces crumbled feta

✅ 1 large onion finely chopped

✅ 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

✅ 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
✅ 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

✅ 1 tablespoon dry oregano

✅ 1 teaspoon salt

✅ 1/2 cup bread crumbs

✅ 1/2 cup flour + more for coating

✅ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

✅ ground pepper

✅ Olive oil for frying


1️⃣ Grate the zucchini, place in a colander and lightly salt. Let it sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed, squeeze (with your hands) as much water you can out of the zucchini.

2️⃣ In a large bowl mix the zucchini, feta , onion, parsley, mint, dill, oregano and 2 lightly beaten eggs.

3️⃣ Sprinkle over the bread crumbs and mix.

4️⃣ Mix the flour and baking powder in a small bowl and sprinkle about half the amount over the zucchini mixture and mix. Keep adding until you have a thickish batter, you don’t want it to be watery.

5️⃣ Take a medium sized pan and add enough olive oil so it is about 1/3 of an inch high. Heat the oil at medium-high heat. Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough and dip it in flour (it does not need to be completely coated) and place that in the pan. Do this for as many fritters you can fit in the pan. Flatten with a spatula (not too much though, these are not meant to be thin like pancakes). Fry about 2 minutes, then flip and fry for 1-2 minutes more.

6️⃣ Place on paper towels to absorb any oil and serve with a bit of lemon and Greek yogurt or tzatziki.
