    Sensational Yogurt Sauce

    Zucchini Fritters

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For Sensational Dipping Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a mini-processor and whiz to combine. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to suit your taste. Thin with a little more water, if necessary. The sauce should be made first to allow flavours to blend and mingle and cool in the refrigerator. (can be made up to 2 days ahead).
    2. 2
      For Zucchini Fritters: Lightly salt the grated zucchini and put in a colander to drain excess water for ½ an hour to 45 minutes. Squeeze out excess water by pressing on handfuls of zucchini at the end of this time.
    3. 3
      Wilt the onion and garlic in the 1 tblsp olive oil, in a small saucepan, for 4-5 minutes, or until translucent and softened.
    4. 4
      Combine all the fritter ingredients in a large bowl to make a uniform mixture (this includes the zucchini and wilted onion mixture). Season to suit your taste with salt and pepper (careful – the feta cheese will already be quite salty, and there will also be salt in the zucchini from the initial draining). The mixture will be soft and sticky.
    5. 5
      Take a generous tablespoonful of the dough and form (delicately) into a patty. Dredge in flour. Repeat, using up all zucchini mixture.
    6. 6
      Heat oil in large skillet, over medium-high heat, and shallow-fry patties until they are golden brown. Flip over and repeat on other side. Remove as they are fried to paper towels to drain while you continue with remaining patties in the same manner, topping up oil, if necessary.
    7. 7
      Serve the patties with the dipping sauce and enjoy!

      The fritters were great-tasting. Bite-sized and thick works best because I found that making them patty-sized they would fall apart. The sauce was okay. Too tart for my taste so I chopped up a cucumber into it.

      I made half of this recipe and wished I had made the full batch of these yummy fritters. Seemed like a lot of zucchini but worked out to be perfect. I used a blended gluten-free all-purpose flour and dredged the patties in sorghum flour. These were more like I consider a bite-sized vegetable patty rather than a fritter. I used light sour cream for the dipping sauce, as that was what I had in the fridge. I liked the addition of the feta cheese and the mild cumin flavour. Photo also to be posted. Good luck in the competition.
