Leek Fritters (Mucver) with Yogurt Dip (tastes SOOO much better than it sounds!)

Ingredients

Fritters

  • 3 Leek Stalks, White and Light Green Parts Only
  • 1 Cup White Cheese or Feta
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Parsley
  • Pepper (Salt can be omitted if the cheese is salty)
  • 1/2 Cup Zeytin's Extra Virgin Olive Oil to fry

Yogurt Dip

  • 1 Cup Yogurt
  • 1 Garlic Clove, Minced
  • 1/8 Cup Fresh Dill, Minced
  • Mint Leaves to Garnish

Preparation

  1. Place the white and light green parts of the leek stalks in a food processor and chop finely. Add in crumbled cheese, eggs and parsley leaves and mix again. 
  2. Add flour. If the batter is too watery, more flour can be added. 
  3. Heat Zeytin Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Using an ice cream scoop, place a spoonful of batter in the oil, ensuring they do not touch each other.
  4. Fry until golden brown - roughly 3-4 minutes on each side. 
  5. In the meantime, make the dip by adding yogurt, finely minced garlic and finely minced dill in a bowl and mixing together. 
  6. When the fritters are cooked, drain excess oil by lightly patting them on a paper towel. 
  7. Enjoy while warm!
