  • 750 g Courgettes Grated
  • 100 g Feta cheese Crumbled into big chunks
  • 2 Eggs Medium free range
  • 2 Cloves garlic Peeled and crushed
  • 15 g Fresh dill Chopped
  • 15 g Fresh mint Chopped
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 75 g Plain flour
  • 200 g Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Red onion Peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil Or spray oil

To serve:

  • Greek yoghurt


  • Preheat the oven to 220C.
  • Grate your courgettes and squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can over a colander. Use the colander and your hands - there will be lots! (See tips below.)
  • When you've squeezed out the liquid, put all of your Courgette Fritter ingredients into a large bowl and mix well with clean hands.
  • Shape the mixture into 8 patties and put onto a greased (or sprayed using Fry Light) baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes of until browned, firm and cooked through.

To fry the Courgette Fritters:

  • Make 16 smaller patties instead of 8.
  • Heat 1 tbsp sunflower oil in a non-stick pan over a medium low heat, cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes until golden and cooked through.
  • Add more oil if needed between batches - don’t over crowd the pan.
  • Keep the cooked batches warm in the oven while you finish off the others.


Coarsely grate: For best results, make sure you coarsely grate your courgettes rather than finely chopped.
Drying the courgettes: I use a clean tea towel for this job (which is a bit annoying as we then have a mucky tea towel BUT does get the most liquid out.) You could also use bare clean hands or a sieve.
