Simple Parsley Fritters with Feta Cheese

Why we Love it: 

  • One word – parsley!
  • Healthy and refreshing 
  • Easy to prepare 

 A few years back, we went to a Metro store and encountered huge bouquets of parsley for insanely small amount of money.

My then university-student-brain did not even ask for permission and directed my hand towards the biggest parsley bunch. When we got home and unpacked the shopping bags, my reasoning slowly started to return to it’s normal state. I did not have any idea what to do with so much parsley. Mind you, we did not have a freezer at the time. So, faced with the scenario that my parsley investment may end up in the rubbish bin, I had to make something with it.

Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of parsley, finely chopped
  • chives to taste, finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 150 g feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp flour, whole wheat
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix chopped parsley, chives, eggs, feta cheese and flour until well combined. 
  • In a non-stick pan, greased with olive oil, add 1/2 of a regular sized ladle and distribute to form a flat fritter. 
  • Let sit until golden and flip over. Remove once both sized are golden and fritter bite is firm enough to stay in one piece. 
  • Repeat until all parsley batter has been used. 

Recipe Notes

GREASING
I recommend always greasing you pan (even non-stick) with some olive oil to prevent fritters from getting burned. 
FLAVORS
To complete the Greek-y style of this side dish, you may add some plain yogurt with fresh fennel leaves (chopped) and finely minced garlic (garlic press does it best)
