About this Recipe

These Zucchini Fritters combine fresh zucchini and herbs with creamy pieces of feta cheese. This recipe is based off of a traditional Greek recipe for Kolokythokeftedes, which are zucchini and feta fritters. You can find many different versions of this recipe throughout the Medditeranean. This recipe uses cornstarch instead of flour to create a lighter batter. Chef Erin recommends serving these with Greek yogurt or tzatziki.
