WHO I MADE IT FOR?
I found this recipe on Food52 and tweaked it slightly. Lindsay and I devoured them. I think next time I would make them slightly thinner to give a crispier pancake.
8/17/2015: made them again (for Lindsay) and made them much skinnier (and saltier)–loved them!
Zucchini (1-2, grated)
Potato (1, grated)
Egg (1-2, depending on how much zucchini you end up adding)
Parsley (1 tablespoon, chopped)
Almond meal (1 tablespoon)
Olive oil (for frying)
- Heavily salt the grated zucchini and potato in a colander. Let sit for at least 30 mins to get as much moisture out of vegetables as possible.
- Add zucchini, potato, egg, parsley, and almond meal in a bowl and mix.
- Add olive oil to pan over medium heat. Add dollop of pancake mix and press down to spread out. Cook for 5-6 mins on each side until crisp and brown. Serve immediately.
BOTTOM LINE: Healthy alternative to satisfy any salt cravings. If making big batches at a time, use oven to keep warm.
