The Shady Porch: Zucchini Pancakes or Latkes


Zucchini Pancakes or Latkes

This is great as a snack or a side dish! The traditional potato cake is high carb, and, since the potato is usually peeled first, it has little nutritional value. Zucchini, on the other hand, is low carb and nutritional! Zucchini, like potato, gets its flavor from the ingredients used with it. If your family likes potato cakes, they will like zucchini cakes, too.

Zucchini Pancakes aka Latkes

Zucchini Pancakes or Latkes

2 cups grated zucchini (don't peel the zucchini...grate the entire zucchini)
1/4 cup green onion or we've also used diced white onions
1/4 t. garlic salt
1/4 cup fresh parsley or 4 t. dried parsley
1/4 cup flour (I used self-rising)
1 egg

Combine all ingredients using mixer, whisk or food processor. Heat skillet, spray with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon batter (about 2 tablespoons makes a pancake) into skillet. Cook until brown; about 1-2 minutes per side. Serve while warm. Makes 8-9 pancakes. 
Note-if using diced white onion you might want to saute them until caramelized and then add to the rest of the mix.
