Zuchinni Fritters, gluten free.

This recipe is very tasty, easy, makes 10 frittersand is approximately 60 calories a fritter. I cooked them in an oiled Pie Machine.   If cooked in a frying pan, I would suggest using Crumpet rings to contain the mixture. 
2 large Zuchinni
80 g grated Parmesan Cheese
1 clove of garlic
2 spring onions, ( I used just the green tops)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon dried herbs, ( I used Oregano)
1 Tablespoon olive oil 2 teaspoons salt

Cut Zuchinni in to 3 cm rounds .
Place into TMX bowl and grate, 2 seconds/ speed 5.   Set aside in a sieve and sprinkle with the salt. Drain for 30 minutes.  
Smash garlic , chop and add to TMX bowl.
Add eggs, Parmesan, herbs, zap 10 seconds/ speed4. 
Push as much water as possible from the Zuchinni and then add to TMX bowl. 
Mix on reverse, 10 seconds/ speed 4. 
Set aside until ready to cook. 

Brush Pie Maker with oil and preheat. 
Spoon 1 1/2 cm of mixture into machine including some of the liquid. 
Shut down lid and cook for approximately 5 minutes.   You will notice a small brown edge forming.
Carefully lift the fritter with a small silicone spatula.  If liquid is still evident, cook a little longer. 
Turn over and cook the other side until brown. Lid open. 
Remove and rest on kitchen paper. 

Can be eaten cold or as a side dish. 

The dark colour does not detract from the taste.
