Meatball Day with a Twist!

Today is National Meatball Day! It is also the period when Greek Orthodox Christians fast for Easter and abstain from eating meat for forty days.


But that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy delicious Greek Zucchini "Meatballs"!!

The word for meatballs in Greek is "keftedes" and you can also make vegetable based keftedes such as Kolokithokeftedes (meaning Zucchini/Courgette "Meatballs").

Packed with my favourite trilogy of herbs, dill, mint & parsley, these keftedes are more like a fritter and simple to make.

I always add halloumi but you can add fetta if you don't have any halloumi.


The best thing to accompany Kolokithokeftedes is Tzatziki! A match made in heaven!!


This is such a delicious recipe, you can make it any time of the year!
