Courgette & Feta Fritters

It’s SATs week at the moment so everything is very much up in the air and to throw another spanner in the works, Hubby has started a new job. When I get home from work I’ve been want something quick and easy to make without it being toooooo unhealthy. Hubby pointed out a recipe for courgette & feta fritters in Delicious a few days ago, so I took advantage of Hubby taking an interest in a veggie meal (which is rare!) and made my own version of the fritters tonight.

I’m not a huge fan of courgette as I find them boring and have slimy school dinner memories of them, but these fritters were really delicious and had a hint of onion bhaji to them. They must have been good as Hubby has requested them again soon!

Courgette & Feta Fritters
Makes 6 fritters

2 medium sized courgettes
1/4 tsp fine salt
4 spring onions, finely sliced
120g feta, cut into 1cm cubes
1 tbsp dried mint
2 eggs
40g plain flour
20g polenta
1 tbsp lemon juice
ground black pepper

1) Grate courgette into a bowl and stir in salt, this helps draw water out of the courgette. Put courgette into a sieve and allow to drain for 20 min. Squeeze courgettes to rid of excess water and drain on some kitchen paper.

2) In a bowl mix all of the ingredients, including the courgettes until thoroughly mixed.

3) Heat 1 tbsp of sunflower oil in a non-stick saute pan on a medium heat. Blob a tbsp of the fritter mix into the pan and flattern slightly. Cook 2-3 min each side until golden. Drain on a piece of kitchen paper.

    I love courgettes and have made fritters as this is one of my favourite way to eat them. I also love them roasted. It’s always good when you get a positive response to a dish and I hope to cook these now the sun is on it’s way!

    Hi there! Thanku for such a great recipe! I just made them & they taste AMAZING! Only 2 changes, I didn’t have polenta (so I left it out,) and had run out of mint so improvised with adding colmans mint sauce! Tasted soooo good hardly any left will have to make them again soon!

      I love the addition of mint sauce. Great idea. I haven’t made these in a while. I must make them again.
