Here, we bring you the answer to your summertime courgette glut (should you have such a problem). A vibrant, summery green dish that packs in the veg and pairs deliciously with a glass of our lightly oak aged 'Elegance' Chardonnay.
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 3-4 / roughly 600gcourgettes, coarsely grated
- 100gself raising flour
- 2eggs, beaten
- 3spring onions, finely chopped
- 150gfeta cheese, crumbled
- 1garlic clove, finely chopped
- 2 tbspfresh dill, mint or coriander, finely chopped
- 1/2 tspdried chilli flakes (optional)
Sprinkle the grated courgette with a little salt, then wait 10 minutes before placing on a clean tea towel and squeezing out as much liquid as you can.
Mix the courgette with the flour and eggs.
Mix in the spring onions, feta, garlic, herbs, chilli (if using) and seasoning (go easy on the salt).
Heat a little olive or sunflower oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the oil, (about 2 tablespoons' batter for each fritter) and pat them down so they flatten slightly in the pan. Fry gently until golden brown on both sides. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm until all of the fritters are ready.
