Recipe: Zucchini cakes with feta

I love zucchini. And every summer I am in search of a few good zucchini recipes. This is one of my favorites. It is very simple to make and really delicious. It goes well with sour cream, greek yogurt, or labne. Enjoy!

Serves 4 (about 18 patties)

2 1/2 cups grated zucchini (about 3 small to medium)
1 teaspoon salt, divided
2 eggs
1/2 cup (or more) brown rice flour
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Coconut oil

Toss grated zucchini in a bowl with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Let sit for five to ten minutes. Transfer to sieve. Press out excess water; place dry zucchini in bowl.

Mix in eggs, 1/2 cup brown rice flour, cheese, 1/2 tsp of salt. Then add parsley and green onions. If batter is very wet, add more flour by the spoonfulls.

Heat 3-4 tbsp of coconut oil on a large skillet over medium heat. Make small patties in hand and fry until golden brown. About 5 minutes on each side, adding additional oil as necessary.

Transfer to paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve with yogurt or sour cream.
