these tasted wonderful! maybe cos i used small zucchini which meant there was less juicy flesh and more skin but i needed to add almost 2 cups of water to the mix. i decided to add the water rather than throw out the mixture and i am so glad. they were light, tasty, filling, and enjoyable. yum! - 5/2/10
