The fresh herbs give these tiny fritters a beautiful earthiness. Serve them as an appetizer, for brunch, or as a light lunch.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater, then squeeze dry in a clean kitchen towel or press in a ricer. Repeat with onion.

  • Mix together zucchini, onion, cheese, flour, and herbs. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in eggs just before frying.

  • Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, coat skillet with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Scoop mounds (2 tablespoons each) of the zucchini mixture into skillet; flatten slightly using a spatula. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Transfer fritters to paper-towel-lined plates to drain. Serve with dollops of plain yogurt and apricot jam.

My husband and I loved this recipe. I prepared the onion and zucchini in a food processor, wrapped it in a dish towel and wrung out all the moisture. Then I sauteed the vegetables before mixing it with the other ingredients. (My stomach cannot handle onion and zucchini that is not well cooked.) Substituted 1/2 teaspon of dried oregano for the fresh. Followed the rest of the directions as listed. Fried them in an electric fry pan. Made seven 4-inch round pancakes (1/4 cup batter per pancake). They very crisp and delicious. We ate them all. I liked the yogurt and apricot jam topping. My husband thought they were great without.

I read the review about it being mushy. I dug out my aunt's rice strainer and used it to reduce the moisture in both the zucchini and the onion. I added some frozen corn for texture and coriander for taste. It reminded me of an Indian meal. Yummy!

I followed the recipe exactly but something went wrong. I expected these to be somewhat dry, like a potato pancake, but they were very, very soggy and mushy. They were just gross.
