This is a recipe that celebrates my love affair with Zucchini, and yes I have love relationships with certain food. Its one of the most versatile vegetables, a perfect carrier for flavour and can be eaten raw and cooked.
These are so easy to make and are a wonderful addition to a picnic and brunch or if made nice and small, are the perfect canape base onto which you can top a variety of things.
I love them cold the next day too.
For this recipe I used the Mediterranean Delicacies Danish Feta which is soft and extra creamy. They gave them a lovely rich and soft texture.Print

- 1 egg lightly beaten
- thyme, mint, parsley (about 2 teaspoons of each chopped)

- tzatziki for dipping
- lemon wedges to serve
- Grate the zucchini and then place in a tea towel and ring out all the liquid, you want these to be as dry as possible.

- Add all the other ingredients and mix to combine.
- Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan and fry dollops of the mixture, turning when golden brown on the one side.
- Drain on paper towel and serve with fresh lemon wedges and Tzatziki.

Reminding me of Greece and summer, this recipe is going to be made over and over again.
