Yoghurt and zucchini fritters

I’m a little fussy when it comes to vegetables. Texture can both excite and disgust me and for some reason zucchinis fall into the latter category. Cut thick I’m not a huge fan. However grated I’m all ears. So to increase my vegetable intake I started making zucchini fritters.

These zucchini fritters are a perfect way to get vegetables into your kids or into fussy kid-like adults (yes…that’s me).

  • 1 ½ zucchinis
  • 1 tablespoon yoghurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 150 grams ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoons dried chili (optional)
  • Salt and paper
  • 3 tablespoons flour.

  • Grate the zucchini
  • Squeeze the zucchini to remove any excess moisture
  • To the grated zucchini add the yoghurt, egg, ricotta cheese, oregano, chili salt and pepper
  • Sift in flour and mix well.
  • Heat a pan with oil
  • Add a tablespoon of mixture and form into a circle
  • Cook until brown on each side – around 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on how hot your pan and thick the fritter is.

Serve as a side dish to a grilled piece of meat, an entrée with tomato and chorizo salsa or with a side of bacon and eggs for breakfast. I sometimes add corn to the mixture too – which adds nice texture, colour and flavour.

My farewell fun yoghurt fact – “Yoghurt with added fruit jam was patented in 1933 by the Radlická Mlékárna dairy in Prague. It was introduced to the United States in 1947, by Dannon.”*
