"A favourite recipe from Alison Holst's book, Meals without Meat. These make a delicious, quick and easy main. Ideal when time is short or courgettes are in abundance and you're looking for another way to eat them."

"What a great way to use up any abundant zucchini!
Apart from squeezing out any excess moisture from the zucchini, I made this recipe exactly as written, and these turned out just perfectly. I did have my doubts about the batter being too thin, but went with it...... but as soon as the batter hit the hot oil they were just so easy to shape and flip....and no breaking!
Great recipe, one which I would love try on the b.b.q. with egg rings next time.
Being an all time Aussie girl I enjoyed mine with some dead horse (tomato sauce) and I just devoured them.
Love this recipe Kathy .... and with summer here and zucchini growing faster than the weeds in my garden I will using this recipe a lot.
Thanks so much."
"These courgette fritters were wonderful. The flavor was excellent and the texture was to die for. Light, tender, crispy and perfect. They were quick and easy to make with terrific results. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing...Thanks for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy again."
"They were very easy to do. The texture was great. I added just enough flour to hold their shape. They were easy to flip in the pan without breaking. They were very yummy. Thanks Kiwi Kathy :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap for March 2012"
"*Reviewed for AUs/NZ Forum Recipe Swap Dec 2010* My family loved these little fritters. I made mine gluten-free by using a blended gf flour and adding in an extra egg. Used 4 medium sized grated zucchinis and squeezed the excess moisture from them after grating. Cooked in a non-stick pan and kept them warm in the oven until all were cooked. Delicious. Adults had ours with sweet chilli sauce and the girls had tomato sauce/ketchup. Photo also to be posted. Will be making these again :)"
"I absolutely loved these courgette fritters. I have to admit that I didn't know what courgettes were, but once I found out that they were zucchini I had to try this recipe. These little fritters turn out sooooooo light and fluffy. They were so easy to whip up and practically cooked themselves up like magic. I dropped them into the oil by the spoonful, and when the one side was done they would flip over to cook the other side. I love breaded, fried zucchini and would dip them in a horseradish/ketchup mixture (similar to shrimp cocktail sauce). I made the same sauce to dip the courgette fritters in. These are so much better than breaded, fried zucchini sticks. They just melted in your mouth. This recipe is going right into my keeper file. Thanks for sharing, Kathy. Made for February, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook."
"Great flavor and so easy to throw together!"
"Yummo! Rather than cooking using much oil I spooned into egg rings into a pan lightly sprayed with oil and cooked fairly slowly while preparing another dish and they came out a treat. Very light and fluffy, I served with a little sweet chili sauce as a side dish."
"Gardens are really late here this year which had me pick up zucchini at the market - we love marinated grilled zucchini. and just couldn't wait for garden fresh. Good thing I bought extra - had enough left over to make a half recipe of your lovely fritters.Have to agree with FC - these really are little gems! Needed a touch more flour which had me add a tablespoon of corn meal that we usually add to our family recipe. Having never made them with cheese this made for a real treat! Served with sour cream - as we do with potato pancakes. Thank you Kathy - it's a keeper. Made for Auz/NZ August Swap."
"My husband and I both very much enjoyed these fritters! I took the Flying Chefs hint and used pesto mayonnaise for me and for my DH honey mustard. We both loved. Thanks! Made for the Australian Swap Aug. 2009."
"Excellent!!! These are so easy to throw together and they taste gorgeous.. Like other reviewers I had to add more flour than listed but that is neither here nor there as these really are little gems. The flavour from the fritters alone is really good, but I served ours with basil pesto mayonnaise and they were totally divine. I have saved these as I can not wait to make these at the next gathering I have as they will go down a treat. A fab recipe Kiwi Kathy!!"
"super easy! left out the garlic, cause I made them for the grandkids. Didnt have a flour issue: I didnt have time to drain the grated courgettes, so I added a little more flour untill it was a nice thick batter. cooked them on med heat, and they puffed nicely. The adults pinched the leftovers and ate them with chilli sauce !!"
"These had a great flavour, but I must have done something wrong, as mine turned out a little flat and very moist. Maybe I need more flour? I will definately make them again, as they were very tasty, but next time I will play around with the flour a bit."
"I'm a total novice at fritters, so I picked a very good recipe to start out with! These are extremely easy to prepare, and cook into light fluffy morsels.. my daughters were eating them happily until they found out they were zucchini, ha ha!! I added a bit more flour, as my batter seemed very wet, but the eggs I used were extra large, once I had a good dropping consistency I fried these lightly and they were marvellous. Now I want to experiment with other veggies! Thanks for a great recipe, Kathy. Made for Aussie/NZ Swap, February, 2009."
