How to make Baked Zucchini Fritters with Feta Cheese
For the beetroot dip
To prepare the beetroot dip combine the beetroot, feta, garlic, lemon juice, hot water, and olive oil in a food processor.
Blend on high until almost smooth, adding more hot water as needed to thin out the sauce if needed.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Scrape into a bowl, cover, and chill until needed.
For the fried zucchini fritters
To prepare the zucchini fritters first cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water until tender to the tip of a knife, about 20 minutes.
Drain well and leave to steam off for a few minutes.
Return the potatoes to the saucepan they were cooked in and add the egg, cornflour, zucchini, and some salt and pepper.
Mash well until thoroughly combined. Shape into patties between oiled palms.
Coat in the breadcrumbs, turning to coat evenly before shaking off the excess.
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan set over a medium heat until hot.
Add half of the fritters and fry for 3-4 minutes until golden-brown underneath.
Flip and cook for a further 2-3 minutes before removing to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Wipe the pan clean and cook the remaining zucchini fritters in the same fashion, using the rest of the olive oil.
Arrange the rocket on a platter with the fritters on top.
Spoon some of the sauce over, serving the remainder on the side.
