Zucchini Fritters

From Weight Watchers Magazine JAN/FEB 2006

Makes 8 fritters (1.5 points each)

2 (500g) zucchini
8 green shallots, ends trimmed, finely chopped (I used chopped dried chives)
125g reduced fat feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup shredded fresh mint leaves
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
(I added a dash of cajun spices)
cooking oil spray

Optional: serve with 1/2 cup Extra light sour cream (I served them with sweet chilli sauce)

Grate zucchini and place in colander and squeeze to remove excess water.

In a bowl mix zucchini, shallots, feta, basil, mint and eggs. Stir in flour until combined. Add black pepper.

Heat a large pan. Spray with oil. Drop mixture in tablespoons, leaving room to spread. Cook for 1 minute or until bubbles appear. Turn and cook for a further minute until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve with sour cream (or sweet chilli sauce).
