Servings: 20 fritters
Calories: 77kcal


  • 2 light green zucchinis (about 380 grams/ 13.4 oz)
  • 120 grams / 4.2 oz Greek feta cheese crumbled
  • ½ small red onion minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 7 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fresh mint leaves chopped (can use dill instead)
  • salt & pepper
  • + olive oil for frying


  • In a large bowl grate the zucchinis, using a box grater.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir everything well until you have a nice and thick mixture.
  • Cover the bottom of a non-stick frying pan with one finger of olive oil and one finger of frying oil (such as canola). Heat over high heat on an electric stove or medium-high heat on gas.
  • Once the oil gets really hot, take a spoonful of the mixture and carefully add it to the hot oil. They don't need to be perfectly round, just toss in as-is to create nice and crispy edges. Add 5-6 fritters at a time and flip them after about 3 minutes. Cook for another 3-4 minutes or until deep golden in color.
  • Transfer on paper towels to drain excess oil and proceed on cooking the next batch.
  • Serve warm along with your favorite dip!
