Courgette Fritters


Many of you have asked what you can do with all of the courgettes that you have grown over lockdown? Courgettes are lovely, simply sautéed with garlic olive oil, salt & pepper. Roasted with grated Parmesan to make the most amazing (and healthy) zucchini fries, or perhaps you’d like to try these utterly delicious courgette fritters? Ready in 15 minutes, these were a total joy to eat.


Serves 2


2 large courgette - grated

1 teaspoon - ground cumin

1 egg

1 1/2 tablespoon self-raising flour

1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper / Pul biber or chilli flakes

Salt & pepper


Herby yogurt - mixed together in a bowl

1 clove garlic - crushed

2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves / coriander or both



Grate the courgette and squeeze in kitchen roll to remove as much water as possible. Do this a few times, the dryer the better.

Mix the fritter ingredients together in a bowl. Form into 4 patties and dust in a little extra flour.

Pan fry in oil until golden on each side - roughly 3-4 minutes on each side on a medium heat.
