Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Greek
Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of parsley (large) finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chives finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1, 1/2 cups feta cheese crumbled
  • 3 tbsp (heaping) whole wheat flour (GF mix) or more as needed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix chopped parsley, chives, eggs, feta cheese and flour until well combined. (I use food processor to chop the parsley and chives). If the batter looks liquid-y add some more whole wheat flour to form a unified batter.
  • In a non-stick pan, greased with olive oil, add 1/2 of a regular sized ladle  (approx. 1/2 cup) and distribute to form a flat fritter. 
  • Let sit until golden and flip over. Remove once both sized are golden and firm. Repeat until all parsley batter has been used.
  •  Top with some Greek Yogurt (cold) and minced garlic (garlic press does it best)

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 dill leaves (chopped) and finely minced garlic.
