Zucchini Pancakes

What to do with all of that zucchini?? Zucchini seems to be a pretty prolific plant from what I can tell. Although I don't actually grow any myself, everyone who does seems to get a ton of it!! We get ours from our CSA. And while I love zucchini bread, I thought maybe I should try something different with it. These zucchini pancakes are delicious - and easy.

First, you need to shred your zucchini (I use my salad shooter to make quick work of this project). I used a mixture of zucchini and yellow squash here. You need about 4 c. of shredded zucchini/squash.

Next, wrap your zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and wring out as much of the moisture as possible.

In a large bowl, combine zucchini, 1 tsp. kosher salt, 2 eggs, 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. parmesan cheese, and 1 bunch chopped green onion.

Mix well.

**Side note - I'm realizing that I should really get some prettier mixing bowls**

Heat a few tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet. Add 1/4 c. zucchini mixture, flattening slightly to make a pancake form. Fry until golden brown.

Flip and fry on the other side until golden brown. Drain any excess oil on a paper towel lined plate. Serve.

Served here with CSA watermelon and corn.


  1. I'm digging the zuchini pancakes, they look good! So Liane bought some slippers the other day at Granville Island and when I saw them I thought of you. I wondered if it was something you could make. Obviously I don't know anything about knitting, but it might be a cool project for you sometime. Check out this link

  2. Hey, Scott. Thanks for the link to the slippers - they're awesome!! I've seen patterns for something similar, but not with the leather soles. I might have to try something like that.
