Courgette and feta fritters (2 colours)
Courgette - 1 large
Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1 small
Egg - 1 large
Pine nuts - 1 tbsp
Dried mint - 0.5 tsp
Feta cheese - 100 g, cut into small dice
Plain flour - 3-4 tbsp
1) Cut the ends of the courgette and coarsely grate it into a sieve over a bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes and then squeeze the courgettes to press out any excess water.
2) Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion for 5-10 minutes until softened.
3) Combine the courgette, onion, pine nuts, mint and feta cheese in a bowl. Add the egg and mix well. Add as much flour as is necessary to make the mixture stick together.
4) Fry spoonfuls of the mixture in the remaining olive oil until golden brown on both sides. Remove any excess oil with kitchen paper and serve hot. Serves 2 (makes 6-8 fritters)
