Sweet Potato Fritters with Feta PDO
Feta is a traditional and certified Greek cheese with high nutritional value and rich taste that goes well with almost all food products.
Look for the PDO sign (Protected Designation of Origin) which ensures the quality, the uniqueness and the authenticity of Feta.
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon torn fresh mint
1 1/2 tablespoons torn fresh dill
1 large scallion (white and green parts), thinly sliced on the bias
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces feta cheese PDO coarsely chopped or crumbled
1 lemon, zested
1 large egg
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Canola oil, for pan-frying
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
Grate sweet potatoes on the large holes of a grater onto a clean kitchen towel. Wring as much liquid out of the sweet potatoes as possible, discarding the liquid.
In a medium bowl, combine sweet potato, mint, dill, scallion, garlic, feta and lemon zest. Stir in egg and flour and mix to combine.
In a large shallow pan, add enough canola oil to reach a depth of 1/4 inch (oil should come halfway up the sides of the fritters) and place over medium-high heat.
Form fritters by hand or using a 1/4 cup measure. In batches, fry fritters until golden-brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
Serve fritters with a dollop of greek yogurt.
Enjoy your meal!
