Ingredients:

*6-8 zucchini, grated
*1 tsp salt
*1/4 cup all-purpose flour
*1 tsp baking powder
*100 gr. grated Greek graviera ( gruyere )
*100 gr. feta cheese, crumbled
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*2 tbsp chopped parsley
*1 large egg, beaten
*Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
*2 tbsp olive oil

 

 

 

 

Directions:

Place grated zucchini in a colander over the sink. Add salt and gently toss to combine; let sit for 10 minutes. Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain zucchini completely.

In a large bowl, combine zucchini, flour, baking powder, Gruyere, Feta, parsley, garlic and egg; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Scoop tablespoons of batter for each fritter, flattening with a spatula, and cook until the underside is nicely golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side, about 1-2 minutes longer.

Serve with Greek Tzatziki.
