Zucchini Pancakes



We’re getting some really beautiful zucchini right now in Saudi and I love to buy them in abundance to make some of my favorite Spring dishes such as this one. These little vegetable pancakes are the perfect light snack or side dish for dinner. You could even do an assorted platter with various vegetables. Sour cream is not always easy to find here and when you do its not like the normal one so I usually substitute that with plain yogurt which I always have on hand.

1 cup shredded zucchini
1 small white onion, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 egg
1/4 cup flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup olive oil, for frying
Yogurt and olive oil for serving

1. In a saute pan on medium heat add olive oil.

2. In a mixing bowl add zucchini, onion, parsley, salt, pepper and onion, mix well and incorporate egg. Make into small patties and fry until brown about 4 minutes on each side.

3. Place on a plate and serve with a small bowl of yogurt with olive oil drizzled on top.

Yields: 4 servings
