Ntomatokeftedes (Greek Tomato and Feta Fritters)

Ntomatokeftedes (Tomato and Feta Fritters)


Over the last few weeks of summer I certainly enjoyed my fair share of the Greek zucchini fritters! They are super simple to make and they are just packed full of great flavours. When I came across a tomato version otherwise know as ntomatokeftedes or Greek style tomato and feta fitters on Kopiaste I just had to try them and now was the perfect time with all of the perfectly ripe field tomatoes around. These tomato fritters get their tomato flavour in the form of ripe tomatoes and a couple of sun dried tomatoes are also tossed in for even more tomatoy goodness. One of the things that I really liked about the zucchini fritters was that they used a lot of fresh herbs and these tomato fritters use just as much. Another thing that I like about this recipe is the use of the bulgur wheat which makes them a bit healthier. To get even more whole grains in there I replaced the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. These Greek style tomato fritters came together just as easily as the zucchini fritters with the only real difference being the amount of flour that was required to handle the extra juices from the tomatoes. The tomato fritters were so good! They were nice and crispy on the outside and warm and moist and full of flavour on the inside. The tomato and feta combo is a great one and it worked really well in these fritters. I served the tomato fritters with a side of tzatziki, a Greek cucumber salad, for dipping.

This sounds like it would make a great lunch, especially with some tzatziki sauce! Isn't it amazing how the word fritter in a recipe typically signifies deliciousness.

Holy hotcakes! I just found your blog via Phoebe and Cara at BigGirlsSmallKitchen and I am in LOVE. Can't wait to try this- we have so many tomatoes in the desert right now! Happy cooking, and I look forward to following your future posts! Cheers, Lily

Kevin said...

Tiffiny Felix: Good catch. they were large field beefsteak tomatoes and the bulgar was a fine grind so it did not need to be pre-cooked.

Kristin said...

I made these the other day Kevin! They came out really good even though I went a little nuts with the dill and added too much.

I wonder how these would taste with basil?
