Zucchni Feta Patties – October 2015

As a child, I was a picky eater.  This was the introduction recipe to zucchini that my mother made for us. It was the only form of zucchini that I ate for quite some time. Later I learned to love zucchini in all its forms. Hope you enjoy this dish.

Yield approximately 14 patties

2 lb Organic zucchini with peel grated by hand

1 medium Sweet Onion (Vidalia) grated by hand or in the food processor

8 oz. good quality feta cheese crumbled (I prefer Bulgarian Feta)

1 c Organic Flour

3 Large Organic eggs

1 T Organic Fresh Dill

1 T Organic Fresh Mint

1 tsp black pepper

1 pinch red pepper flakes

Sea Salt to taste

1 c grapeseed oil

Greek yogurt for dipping (optional)

Wash zucchini and grate in a bowl. Grate the onion and add to zucchini. Add chopped fresh dill and mint, eggs, peppers, salt and flour and mix well until you have a runny dough. Let rest for 10 minutes. Be careful of oil splatter near children or pets. Heat the oil over medium heat in a cast iron pan or an electric skillet and drop batter with an ice cream scoop into oil and fry on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Work in batches determined by size of skillet. If it’s frying too fast, reduce heat slightly. Place on a wire rack. Pat the tops with a paper towel to remove excess oil, if any. Salt lightly (optional but recommended). Serve warm or room temperature.
