Savoury zucchini feta & mint cake

Savoury zucchini feta & mint cake

The feta cheese and the Greek yogurt bring a nice fresh touch to this delicious zucchini bread recipe. This one is from my friend Marina. I am a fan of her cooking always healthy, inspiring, and so savoury.

Good to know!

Marina likes to add a handful of pine nuts sometimes. It’s worth trying too! As for myself, I like to use 200g feta cheese with 2 TBS Provence herbs, a lot of mixed ground pepper, and a very large handful of mint leaves.
