  • 2 courgettes (approx 300-330g once topped and tailed), grated
  • 150g frozen peas, thawed
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 50ml milk (semi-skimmed or any alternative)
  • 100g gluten-free self-raising flour (e.g., FREEE by Dove’s Farm)
  • Black pepper, to taste

Optional to Serve:

  • Plain yogurt (4 tsp)
  • Dried mint (1 tsp)
  • Chili flakes (a pinch)
  • Half a lemon


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Grate the courgettes and place them in a colander with a pinch of salt to draw out moisture. After a few minutes, squeeze out the excess water. Meanwhile, thaw the peas by placing them in a bowl of warm water.
  2. Mix the Fritter Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated courgettes, thawed peas, crumbled feta cheese, beaten eggs, and milk. Stir well to incorporate. Gradually sift in the gluten-free self-raising flour, mixing until you have a cohesive batter. Season with black pepper to taste.
  3. Cook the Fritters: Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add a drizzle of oil. Once hot, spoon in the batter to form small fritters, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
  4. Prepare the Serving Sauce: In a small bowl, mix the plain yogurt with dried mint. This will serve as a refreshing dip or drizzle for your fritters.
  5. Serve: Arrange the fritters on a serving platter. Drizzle or serve the minted yogurt on the side. Sprinkle over some chili flakes for a bit of heat and squeeze over the lemon juice for a zesty finish.
