Zucchini and mint fritters
I adore these…so fresh and light and quick to cook.   The marriage of courgette, feta and mint is a solid one that will last many years and will probably see their silver anniversary with us.  My original recipe used to have regular flour in it *swoons with horror* but I’ve now replaced it with coconut flour.  Almond flour also works but I prefer the texture of coconut flour.

A tip on squeezing out the excess water out of the zucchini.  Use a nut bag!  It’s not only just for making your own nut milk!

    Just had these for lunch and they were delicious. My husband eat his with homemade chutney which I had to pass on due to the sugar content.
