    • 4 tablespoons chopped onion

    1. In a medium bowl, combine the courgette, eggs, onion, flour, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese and salt. Stir well enough to distribute ingredients evenly.
    2. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Drop courgette mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls, and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    I've also made these with carrot substituted for half the quantity of cougette and with Feta cheese instead of Mozarella.  -  19 Aug 2010
