I know the picture doesn't make these little treasures look appetizing, but trust me, they truly are. I love the combination of the zucchini with the feta and pine nuts. Super delicious! They make the perfect side dish for your protein. Enjoy!
-1 lb zucchini, grated
-1 tsp salt
-3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
-2 large eggs, slightly beaten
-3 green onions, sliced
-4 Tbs flour
-1/4 cup pine nuts, chopped
-1 tsp dried dill or 1 Tbs fresh, chopped
-1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/2 tsp ground pepper
-extra virgin olive oil, for frying
Combine the grated zucchini with the salt and let it sit for 5 minutes only. Rinse, then squeeze dry. It's really important for the zucchini to be really dry, otherwise the cakes will be a mushy mess! Set aside.
Combine the feta, eggs, onion, flour, pine nuts. dill, oregano, garlic and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Fold in the zucchini.
Heat some oil in a large skillet.
Form zucchini mixture into cakes, then drop into hot oil. Turn once until browned on both sides (cook for about 3 minutes per side).
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
