Ingredients

  • 2 cups coarsely grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt depending on how salty your feta is
  • 5 tbsp crumbled feta
  • 1/2 cup olive oil for frying

Instructions

  • Salt the zucchini and carrot with about roughly 1 teaspoon of salt and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Take a handful of the veggies and remove the excess juice from them by ringing them out with your hands.
  • Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl.
  • To the eggs, add the flour, grated veggies, diced pepper, salt and feta in this order and stir together just until evenly combined.
  • Finally add in the baking powder and stir to combine.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Drop 1-2 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet. Drop as many mounds as your skillet can take.
  • Flatten slightly and fry 3 minutes on each side or until golden-brown and crispy.
  • Transfer them onto a paper towel to soak up any excess oil, and repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve warm or cold, with yogurt.
