Yield: 1 Servings
|3 mediums||Zucchini; shredded (4 cups)|
|½ cup||Finely chopped onion 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine|
|2 \N||Eggs; slightly beaten|
|¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|\N \N||Cooking oil|
Place the zucchini in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and set aside for 30 minutes. Squeeze as much of the liquid as possible from the zucchini with your hands. In a medium skillet, cook the onions in the butter or margarine over medium heat about 3 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
Transfer the zucchini and onions to a large bowl. Stir in the eggs, flour and pepper. Pour the cooking oil into a clean medium skillet to a depth of ⅛ inch. Heat over medium-high heat. Drop slightly rounded tablespoons of the batter into the hot oil and flatten to 3-inch diameters with the back of a spoon. Cook the pancakes over medium-high heat until golden, turning once (2to3 minutes on each side) Remove the pancakes with a slotted spatula and drain on paper towels. Add more oil to the skillet, if needed, and repeat until all of the batter is used.

This dish can be used as a main dish or as a vegetable sidedish. If you just want to munch on it as a snack, that's cool too. Put a spoonful of herbed up plain-non-fat yogurt or n/f sour cream. Drizzle some cheese sauce on it, but add those fat grams to the total! When yellow summer squash is plentiful, substitute it for the zucchini.
Dress up these pancakes by adding ¼ cup shredded carrot to the batter.
