I was trying to come up with something different to use zucchini for besides bars and bread and I remember having zucchini cakes a few times as a kid so I came up with a recipe to fit our tastes:)
What you need:
- 1 large fresh zucchini or 4 c. frozen zucchini(shredded)
- 1/2 c. bread crumbs
- 2 eggs
- 1 spoonful minced garlic
- 1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese
Try and drain all the water out of the zucchini that you can. I used frozen zucchini so I made sure it was fully thawed out and then I drained it the best I could.
Add in the breadcrumbs, eggs, cheese, and garlic. I also added a little bit of onion salt but in my opinion they turned out too salty so I would omit that unless you like salty foods!
Mix all the ingredients together. It should be a fairly thick consistency.
Heat up olive oil in a fry pan.
Drop flatten zucchini cakes into the warmed oil. I used a lid so it wouldn't splatter all over when the oil got hot.
After a few minutes flip over the cakes. They should get nice and brown.
After I pulled them out of the pan I set them on a paper towel to drain some of the oil off. Enjoy!
