I’m a huge fan of vegetables, but often lazy about making them. Vegetable preparation can be tedious and sometimes I’ll bypass perfectly good fresh vegetables in favor of some frozen ones, just to be lazy. So I’m always on the lookout for vegetable recipes that don’t involve a lot of chopping and care.
This recipe is great because the proportions don’t have to be exact and nothing has to look good. Plus, since you’re peeling the zucchini, it’s a great way to use up zucchini that’s a little past its prime. I quickly hand grate the zucchini, onion and cheese, but if you have a food processor that shreds this will be even quicker for you.
I developed this zucchini pancake recipe after trying about half a dozen online recipes, and taking what I wanted from each one. I was looking for something with the consistency of a regular pancake, that didn’t involve much oil and didn’t taste at all greasy. And if you use these awesome pans from GreenPan you can even skip the oil altogether.
As a bonus, I can keep the batter in the fridge for about a day and dip into it whenever I feel like a snack. Or, sometimes I cook the whole batch up at once and microwave the leftovers.
I happen to like my food oniony and cheesy. You can always lower the onion and Parmesan content if you like – just not if you’re making them for me. :-)
2 c. peeled and grated zucchini (about 2 large)
1 c. Bisquick or Jiffy mix
2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1/4 c. grated onion
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat griddle or pan to 350 degrees (med-hi heat). Carefully spread just enough oil to keep pancakes from sticking.
Mix all ingredients well. Batter should be on the thin side.
Spoon onto griddle and spread out to make very thin pancakes.
Cook on both sides until medium brown.
Keep warm on plate in 200 degree oven.
Serve with applesauce, sour cream, or tzatziki sauce.
