An easy zucchini, carrot and onion vegetarian pancake style of fritter, served with some bottled tomato based salsa, a vege salsa and a dob of sour cream. These fritters make a great vegetarian lunch or dinner and make for a good budget stretcher too. Seems like a lot of ingredients, but you can prepare the salad ingredients while you are chopping the vege for the fritters. This recipe was created for Dining on A $ Competition 2011- using competition ingredients of zucchini, purple onion, cumin, egg and bottled salsa. THis recipe can be made gluten-free by using a blended gluten-free all-purpose flour and gluten-free baking powder (My photos posted to this recipe were gluten-free fritters)
