Zucchini is a favorite in the veggie world because of its lovely mild flavour and great flexibility. These are two ways that I love to use zucchini in the late summer and fall. Don’t forget to dig out your family favorite zucchini loaf recipe too.
• 3 cups zucchini, coarsely grated
• ¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
• ¼ cup mint, chopped
• ½ cup sweet onion, small dice
• ½ cup flour
• 3 eggs, beaten
• ½ cup goat cheese feta
• salt & pepper
• oil of your choice to fry
Sumac Yogurt Sauce:
• 1 cup plain yogurt,
• 1 tsp lemon zest
• 1 tbsp lemon juice
• 1 tbsp sumac
• salt and pepper
Mix Sumac Yogurt Sauce ingredients together and set aside.
Heat oven to 200 degrees.
Grate the zucchini and then in batches squeeze as dry as possible.
Mix together with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.
Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and add oil.
With a large tablespoon, scoop out a heaping amount of zucchini mixture
and add to frying pan, flattening with the top of your spoon to a ½ inch thick.
Depending on the size of your pan, continue to add fritters but don’t crowd them.
When golden brown, flip them to achieve same on the other side.
Remove to drain on a paper towel.
Wrap with foil, place into oven to keep warm.
Serve with Sumac Yogurt Sauce. Enjoy!!
