Halloumi and Zucchini Gluten Free Fritters

by Vashte on March 16, 2012

Halloumi is a Middle Eastern cheese often used for grilling. Many people call it the ‘squeeky’ cheese. Halloumi is produced as a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and is similar to mozzarella cheese.

This cheese can be fried or grilled due to its high melting point and  halloumi is often paired with salads and fruits, particularly watermelon.  I LOVE IT!!

Ingredients:

  • 300g Zucchini
  • 4 spring onions thinly sliced
  • 200g halloumicoarsely grated
  • ¼ cup Gluten Free flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill to garnish
  •  Cup Greek Yoghurt

How to make it work:

Coarsely grate the zucchini and squeeze out as much liquid as possible in your hands or in a clean tea towel.  Combine the zucchini with the spring onion, halloumi, flour, eggs and dill.  Season well with salt and cracked pepper

Heat your oil- (use either rice bran oil or coconut oil) in a large heavy-based frying pan.  Form fritters (using heaped teaspoons of the mixture) and cook in batches for 2 minutes each side, or until golden and firm.  Drain on crumpled paper towels.  Top each fritter with ½ a teaspoon of yoghurt.

Makes 45 – so you can feed an army :)

Of course you can have these for lunch, for dinner, or as a snack. Hot or cold. You choose.
