Many people find that when they start low carbing the hardest thing to give up is potatoes, and especially the much loved rösti.  This is a delicious alternative and can be enjoyed without any guilt.  Delicious with tzatziki on the side!

Low carb courgette fritters

It is important to get most of the water out of the grated courgette, and then use lots of butter while frying on a medium heat for a long time to get a nice crispy surface.  If you are in a hurry and don't want to fiddle with frying a number of fritters, just make one big patty in the frying pan. Fry until browned, place a plate over the frying pan and turn upside down to get the patty out, then slide back in the pan and fry the other side.

Low carb courgette fritter ingredients:

  • 2 medium courgette (zucchini), grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100 gram finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/3 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp flour (almond, flaxseed meal, or coconut)
  • salt & black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbs butter

Low carb courgette fritter cooking instructions:

1.  Put the grated courgette in a bowl and mix with the salt.
2.  Leave it for half an hour to an hour, then drain and squeeze as much of the liquid out as you can.
3.  Add onion, feta, oregano, pepper, eggs, flour and mix it together.
4.  Melt a tablespoon of butter in a non stick frying pan.
5.  Use a serving ladle to get just over a tablespoon's worth of courgette mix for each fritter and place in the pan.
6.  The patties will absorb some butter, add more as needed.
7.  Leave the patties to really brown on the bottom before turning them once and finish frying on the other side.
8.  Properly browned you get a nice, toasty flavour and a crisp outside texture that goes so well with the silky inside.
