Ingredients 

  • 4 zucchinis, grated
  • 1 large lemon (zested)
  • ⅓ cup chopped mint leaves
  • 2 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ chopped garlic cloves
  • ⅔ cup wholemeal flour
  • ⅔ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 70g crumbled feta cheese
  • 70g rocket leaves 
  • 4 teaspoons parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbs low-fat greek yoghurt
  • Black pepper (to taste)

 

Method

  1. Mix grated zucchini, mint leaves, eggs, chopped garlic, flour, breadcrumbs and lemon zest in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle over the crumbled feta cheese and combine.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan, then reduce heat to medium. Create patties using 2 tablespoons of the zucchini mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. 
  4. Keep cooking patties until you have used all the mixture.
  5. Allow to drain on a paper towel, and then serve on top of rocket leaves. Season with pepper, parmesan and green yoghurt. 

 

Cooking tip:

  • If you find that your patties are falling apart, increase the oil and wait until they are lightly golden before flipping.
  • When cooking fritters don’t cook on a high temperature. Preheat the pan first and then reduce to medium-low.
