Food blog, you live?
How funny... I figured you'd have died from all my neglect. Please forgive me.
Today, I am sharing my favorite appetizer type dish. Zucchini cakes, from The Pioneer Woman and Pastor Ryan. I feel that if you use this basic form for any vegetable really you'll have good "cakes" and therefore happy eaters.
You will need:
1 or 2 Zucchini
2 cloves of minced garlic (1 tbsp)
1/2 cup (seasoned) bread crumbs
1/2 cup of Cheese (Romano, Parmesan, Italian blend, whatever)
salt and peppa to taste
enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a skillet
This makes enough for 4 people.
Start by grating the Zucchini. If, you were to say, be doing this for potato pancakes, I'd vote using frozen hash browns because that's just easier and you're frying it so does it really matter if it's fresh?
Well, I am the one who cuts potatoes when I am making chili cheese fries.. so I don't know what I'm talking about. Normally fresh is best, but grating this takes a long time. I don't think I would if it were potatoes.
Grate the zucchini (after you've cut off the ends thankyouverymuch) and put it in a towel.
