Recipe of the Day: Zucchini Fritters

Neither my wife nor I are huge zucchini fans. This recipe, based on potato pancakes, does a good job of incorporating the zucchini, without the typical wilty flavor.

Zucchini Fritters
1 zucchini
2 - 3 small potatoes
1 small onion
2 eggs
about 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
salt and pepper

Grate the zucchini, potato and onion.

Soak in water. Rinse a few times until the water runs clear. This will help keep the potatoes from turning brown, and will mellow the onion flavor.

Drain the shredded veggies and place on a clean kitchen towel. Using the towel, squeeze the moisture out of the vegetables.

Place this in bowl. Mix in the eggs, flour, baking powder and season with salt and pepper

In a large pan add a little oil (or a lot) and drop large spoonfuls of the mixture in the pan. Flatten the cakes. Cook for about 4 - 5 minutes on a side.

Serve hot.
