These pancakes are a creative way to eat zucchini. They make a delicious on-the-go snack if you have leftovers.



  1. Grate zucchini into a large bowl. Let the grated zucchini sit for 10 minutes, then form it into a ball and squeeze as much water out of it as possible using paper towels.

  2. Add finely chopped scallions, garlic, egg, and flour. Season with salt and pepper. Stir well to evenly combine.

  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Drop rounded spoonfuls of zucchini batter into hot oil, flattening slightly to form a pancake. Fry in batches until golden, about 3 minutes per side.

  4. Drain pancakes on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.

  5. Top with light sour cream or tzatziki sauce and sprinkle with extra scallions if desired.
