In Greece we eat a seasonal menu and Kolokithokeftedes is a wonderful courgette dish, a treat in fact as its lightly fried in olive oil. It's an easy recipie to try and i've added a Briami, greek summer vegetables cooked in the oven also for you to try. All below
Kalo kari, good summer everyone xx
Zucchini ball Ingredients:
Heat half of the olive oil in a heavy skillet. Scoop out the mixture with a tablespoon and shape into round, flat fritters. If the mixture is too wet to shape, add a little flour. Cook the fritters over medium heat, 5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Remove the fritters from the pan and place on paper towels to absorb the oil.
Squeeze a little lemon on top and serve hot. Enjoy!
