Greek Zucchini and Feta Fritters

Well, here we go, I made another amazing Greek recipe! OK, I am obsessed with Greek cuisine and I guess you’ve figured that by now 🙂 I tend to go crazy during the summer with these recipes. Sorry, can’t help it! This time I have made Zucchini and Feta Fritters.

Easy Greek Zucchini and Feta Fritters

These fritters are healthy, low in calories and just right to sneak in some green veggies for those picky eaters (I am sure we all have some at home). I love to serve them as a healthy snack, as the perfect appetizer (classic Mezze served in a Greek taverna) or even as light lunch on a summer day, served with fresh tzatziki or some hummus….yum! You get to choose which one would be your favorite way to enjoy them.

It is so easy to make Greek Zucchini and Feta Fritters and trust me, everyone will dig in these amazing crispy veggie rounds! There will be no complaints about veggies, greens or anything. I have served mine with some hummus on side, this time. You can easily replace the hummus with fresh tzatziki.

I love fritters, and don't make them often enough. And zucchini and feta are a great combination!
