Enjoyed the combo of veggies here, & the only thing I left out was the avocado! I patted the grated veggies dry (or at least drier!) with paper towels before adding them to the mix & that seemed to work well enough for me! These fritters turned out great & will be a nice addition to my veggie table when I have my son & his wife over! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday cooking game]

Great fritters for a great lunch/snack! Easy to prepare and wonderful with the spinach, avocado and lemon juice. We also enjoyed ours topped with my favourite sauce, a mix of natural yoghurt, garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. YUM! Only thing, used plain flour instead of chickpea and extra pepper instead of peppercorns (I don't like them) and they turned out great. Possibly a little soft for my liking, so will try squeezing the excess moisture from the zucchini next time. Thanks for a great lunch idea!
