Oven-baked zucchini and feta fritters with garlic-yoghurt sauce

If you’re looking for a delicious, easy, and nutritious dinner, give these oven-baked zucchini and feta fritters a try. 

As they’re oven-baked, they’re a lot healthier than your traditional, deep or shallow-fried fritters, with less oil, and as a bonus, less mess!

These tasty morsels turn out moist on the inside, crispy on the outside, and not greasy like you find with fried foods. 


For the fitters:

  • 2 medium zucchinis, peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon chopped dill (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs

For the yoghurt-garlic sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 small garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons chopped dill


1. Sit grated zucchini in a strainer over a bowl and stir through salt. Allow to sit and drain for 20 minutes, before squeezing out any excess liquid.

2. Preheat over to 175C and line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper.

3. Combine all fritter ingredients in a large bowl. Shape approximately 2 tablespoons worth of mixture into patties and place on baking tray.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until patties are golden-brown.

5. Combine all ingredients for the sauce, and serve with hot fritters.
