so, i’m a fan of zucchini, i L-O-V-E it!!!
unfortunately husband does not love it… he barely tolerates it…
so, i decided to make something i knew he wouldn’t eat anyways…
enter: this recipe:
simple enough… i hate draining stuff tho…(lazyyyy)
here’s the recipe: with my modifications in italics!
Recipe: Zucchini Pancakes
2 cups grated zucchini (~1 zucchini)
>>1/2 grated Granny Smith Apple<<
>>splash of lemon juice (to prevent browning of apple<<
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs >>1/2 cup panko crumbs<<
1/2 medium onion grated >>1 medium onion, grated <<
1 handful spinach (~2 cup spinach) chopped fine >>large handful of baby spinach thrown into food processor<<
1/2-1 tsp salt
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup chopped dill >>did not use this much dill!<<
>>1/4 cup grated gouda <<
Combine the grated zucchini, spinach and onion in a sieve. >>I grated the onion, zucchini, and apple together, used the coarse blade for the spinach and then mixed together<<Drain as much water as possible (I try to squeeze the liquid out- after this I sometimes lay the mixture in a paper towel and squeeze it to absorb as much liquid as possible).
Add the flour, panko, dill, cheese and eggs to the zucchini mixture. You should be able to form the mixture into a pancake without it being too liquidy.
Heat an oiled skillet over medium heat. Spoon the batter onto the skillet (~2 tbsp each or whatever size you desire). Cooke for ~3 minutes oer side or until browned slightly.
>>Preheat oven to 400º
grease an oven sheet
plop your fritters onto the sheet, spray tops with cooking spray or olive oil.
put into oven for 15 minutes, flip, spray tops with oil, cook for another 15 minutes. <<
