Kolokythokeftedes (Zucchini & Feta Balls)

3 c. zucchini, grated and squeezed with a paper towel
1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled (or more!)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 sprigs mint, chopped
dried dill, coriander, parsley, sprinkled very liberally
salt & pepper to taste
1 egg, lightly beaten
pinch or two of Parmesan cheese
oil for deep frying

Mix the zucchini, feta, garlic, mint, dried spices, salt and pepper, Parmesan, and egg in a large bowl. Mix in enough flour and breadcrumbs to be able to form the mixture into balls. Form the mixture into balls, and then roll in flour. Fry in oil until golden brown. Allow to cool. Serve with marinara or tzatziki sauce.
