Since this zucchini feta fritters recipe was posted extra than 2 years ago, I’ve been getting vast feedback, but in addition some questions about substitutions.

NO FLOUR (BREADCRUMBS) ZUCCHINI FRITTERS:
I’ve made those feta and courgette fritters fairly a couple of instances and I needed to replace the flour  (breadcrumbs) with both beef rinds (crushed) or almond flour. Both ingredients labored great, producing gluten-free zucchini and feta fritters.

The flourless zucchini fritters that I made with beaten beef rinds had been extra moist than those made with almond flour. The baked zucchini fritters made with almond flour had been somewhat dryer and chewier, but nonetheless tasted good.

I used dill simply due to the fact I love its freshness and it also pairs nicely with the zucchini and yogurt dipping sauce. If you or your household are usually now not followers of dill, really sense unfastened to make use of chives, mint, parsley or simply depart it out.

The whipped feta from this publish will pair vast with those fritters.
