Method

  • 1. Squeeze the grated courgette in paper towels to remove some of the juice.

  • 2 For the feta sauce, place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place into a small bowl and refrigerate.

  • 3. In a heat-proof bowl, pour boiling water over the peas to thaw, then drain.

  • 4. In the food processor (leaving any remaining feta sauce in there), pulse the peas until chunky, then transfer to a large bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients, except the oil and salad greens, stirring well to combine.

  • 5. In a large frying pan, heat oil and cook large tablespoons of the batter until brown. Flip and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside on a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.

  • 6. Serve the fritters drizzled with feta sauce and salad greens on the side.
