Swiss Chard Fritters
Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 14 fritters
14 ounces (2 bunches) swiss chard leaves and stems
1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped dill
1/2 teaspoons grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 tablespoons breadcrumbs
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large eggs
3 ounces crumbled feta cheese (1/2 cup)
Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add chard and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from pot and drain well, patting leaves very dry with a paper or kitchen towel.
Place chard in food processor with herbs, nutmeg, sugar, flour, garlic and eggs. Pulse until well blended. Fold in feta by hand.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, spoon in 1 heaping tablespoon of mixture for each fritter (you should be able to fit three fritters per batch). Press down gently on fritter to flatten. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Add another tablespoon oil to pan and repeat. Serve warm, with lemon wedges (optional).
