Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater, then squeeze dry in a clean kitchen towel or press in a ricer. Repeat with onion. Mix together zucchini, onion, cheese, flour and herbs. Season with on teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in eggs just before frying.

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, coat skillet with 1-2 tablespoons oil. Scoop mounds (2 tablespoons each) of the zucchini mixture into skillet; flatten slightly using a spatula. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.
