Easy kale and feta fritters is a delicious way to use kale. They’re perfect as an easy snack or appetizer and make great lunchbox fillers.

Kale and feta fritters

These kale and feta fritters happened a while ago when I needed to use a big bunch of kale that I had left over in my fridge. Fritters are a fantastic way to use up the last scraps of vegetables and are fantastic as an easy lunch, delicious snack or simple appetizer.

Because I use kale in much the same way as I do spinach, I knew feta cheese would be a perfect match. I love the creamy, salty cheese with vegetables like spinach, kale, cauliflower and broccoli. I served the fritters with a spicy, creamy dip made with sour cream, mayonnaise and a spoon of chilli paste. So dippable and delicious.

How do you make fritters?

Making good fritters is so easy. They are pretty much just pancakes with added ingredients. I like super fluffy fritters that are stuffed to the brim with vegetables, cheese and other flavorings. I make fritter batter with flour, eggs, a small amount of oil to keep them super soft and fluffy inside and a good seasoning of salt, pepper and herbs.

Mixing the batter until the ingredients are just combined assures the batter doesn’t get overworked and will also result in delicious tender fritters.

If you want crispy fritters, fry them in oil until golden brown and crisp. Alternatively, cook them in the same way you would pancakes in a large, non-stick pan.

    These were so delicious and surprisingly filling. The dipping sauce is great and adds both a creamy texture and a tiny bit of heat. I bet leftover corn would be good added to them too. Thanks for a great recipe!
