Courgette Feta Fritters

Courgette feta fritters
Courgette feta fritters make a wonderful starter, snack or light dinner. Using buckwheat flour in the batter keeps them light and gluten free. I served these with a spicy avocado chilli and lime salsa which was fresh and cut through the richness of the fritters. Makes 4 fritters

Courgette Feta Fritters

  • 2 Medium Courgettes
  • 1 Organic Egg
  • 1 tbsp Buckwheat Flour (or plain flour for non gluten free)
  • Splash Organic Milk
  • 50g Organic Feta
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Butter or Olive Oil, for frying
  1. Grate the courgettes into a colander. Scatter 1tsp salt over and place over a bowl or sink to drain. The salt will draw out some of the moisture from the courgette. Leave for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can from the courgette and place in a bowl.
  3. Add the egg, flour, feta and pepper and mix to create a batter.
  4. Heat a large frying pan and add enough oil/butter/combination to shallow fry.
  5. Split the mixture into 4 and shape into patties.
  6. Place in the frying pan and fry on each side for about 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with a fresh salsa or dip like the avocado, chilli and lime recipe below.

Avocado, Chilli and Lime Salsa

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • 2 Fresh Chillies
  • Handful Fresh Coriander (or frozen)
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Drizzle of Avocado Oil
  1. Cut the avocado in half, twist and remove the pip. Squeeze out the green flesh into a bowl.
  2. Juice the lime into the avocado. This will stop it colouring and add a zinginess to the salsa.
  3. Finely chop the chillies, garlic  and coriander and add to the avocado.
  4. Add seasoning to taste and serve with the fritters, drizzling with a little avocado oil.
