    Zucchini Cakes




    Zucchini Cakes

    Fresh zucchini, cheese, and spices blended together and fried until golden.

    Makes: 8 CakesCook time: 15 min
    Ingredients:

    1 large zucchni grated, excess water removed (Note: To do this, after you grate the zucchini, put the grated zucchini into paper towels and squeeze to release the water)
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    1 cup panko bread crumbs
    sprinkle of ground nutmeg, about 1/8 teaspoon (Note: If you add too much it can quickly take over the taste, less is more)
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 egg
    salt and pepper to taste
    1-2 tablespoons olive oil
    Instructions:

    Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Using a heaping tablespoon form the mixture into 8 patties.
    Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once heated, add patties and cook until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes per side. Serve.
    These are great when served with a dollop of ranch dressing. Enjoy!

    Making tonight. I had garlic and herb bread crumbs, 5 small zucchini and put the tiniest clove of garlic in that I could find since the breadcrumbs are garlic already. I also used 2 eggs to help them stick together a bit better (I hope) Have them made to the frying point, just waiting a bit on the timing.

    Ok, Next time I won't use the garlic bread crumbs. The garlic tended to overpower the zucchini. Also I fried/browned a little too quickly so the insides weren't cooked as much as I would have liked. So I had to finish them in the oven for about 20 minutes to cook the zucchini all the way to the middle.

    I would do them again however. Just with plain bread crumbs next time.

    Tried it, loved it. My hubby thought it was meat. I used really bread crumbs because I didn't have panko and used feta cheese because I didn't have Parmesan. Very tasty Click image for larger version.
