Courgette / Zucchini Mint and Feta Fritters

Take four ingredients (as pictured here) courgettes, mint, feta cheese and eggs ... then make some lovely low carb fritters. So easy you'll see just read on ...

Courgette, mint, feta fritters

When courgettes (zucchini) are in season, why not buy up large and make huge batches of these courgette mint and feta fritters. They are so delicious, colourful and nutritious. Keep the extra for lunch the next day at work or school. Many fritters have wheat, flour or other agents to bind them together. You don’t need any of those, just 4 ingredients go into these low carb fritters.
Serve with a salad and drizzle with oil, or use as a side dish, for lunch or dinner. Courgette Mint and Feta Fritters also make an excellent after school snack.

Heat a frying pan and add fry small batches in coconut oil until golden.

I love zucchini and just happen to have all the ingredients. Mint grows wild all over here. I think I'll try making a few tomorrow for lunch. Thanks for the recipe, Jan. Have a wonderful day.

Hello Anonymous 15.50 ... think you are right - perhaps they come from 'The Happy Egg' Company? Eggs are so good for you.

Thanks for your comment.

Hi Jo - I'm sure your own home-grown courgettes will taste great, and yes do give these fritters a try.

Thanks for your comment.

This is a great recipe! I have a similar one with pumpkin that I learned from my mother.

Is that a photo of your outdoor sitting area? That is beautiful.

Hi Martha - thanks for your comment. I love 'hand-me-down' family recipes you can't beat them, and I think it is so good to be able to do this.

That sitting area does look inviting, but not ours, it is courtesy of 'Mr Google' ...

Hope your week is going well, they certainly pass very quickly.

All the best Jan
