14: Recipe: Zucchini pancakes


I am not sure if I have mentioned before, but I am a HUGE zucchini fan. I think it’s my favorite vegetable. For the longest time, I would just slice it up and cook it in a pan just until tender and then sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top of it. That’s all the spices they needed.
But a couple months ago, I found a new recipe for zucchini and it has easily become one of my favorite side dishes: zucchini pancakes!

They are super-easy to make and so delicious! I tweaked the recipe a little bit, but they turned out great!


4  small to medium sized zucchinis
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup of fresh parsley
1 garlic clove (minced)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
6-8 tbsp wheat flour
2-3 tbsp of water
salt and pepper to taste

Grate zucchini into a large bowl (you can grate them as chunky or fine as you like). Add onion, garlic, parsley, cheese and flour. Mix all ingredients well and add the 2-3 tbsp of water to make sure it’s somewhat sticky. Season with pepper and salt.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with (canola) oil.  Form little balls of the zucchini batter and squeeze flat between your palms before dropping it into the pan. Cook a couple of minutes from each side until golden brown. Serve hot along with some grilled chicken, fish or just enjoy by themselves.

Are you a zucchini fan? Any other good recipes you’d like to share?

  3. I love zucchini. I love to grill it or diced it up and roast it. Mmmmm. And my favorite way to prepare it is to make zucchini boats!

  4. I love zucchini and was looking forward to having a lot from the garden, but I have only gotten one here and there. I usually just eat them plain with salt and pepper or I like to put them in baked goods!
