Excellent recipe! I changed the proportions to 2C. Zucchini and 2C. Onions and added alot of garlic - just because we love it. We couldn't stop eating them - and neither could our meat-eating friends!

This recipe is pretty fabulous. I added grated carrots and diced red onions to the batter and it was really flavorful. Serve with ketchup or hot sauce.
