We bought a bunch of big, beautiful zucchini and summer squash the other day on the way home from the beach. We didn’t really have a plan for them, but I stumbled upon this simple recipe for savory zucchini cakes. I liked that the ingredient list is short and it comes together really quickly. I’ll definitely be making these again and again.
Makes about 8 patties
Adapted from Just Putzing Around the Kitchen
- 1 large zucchini, grated and drained
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup panko
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp red curry powder
- 1/2 cup Parmesan
- 1 scallion, thinly sliced (optional)
Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Grate the zucchini and squeeze out the excess liquid. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Form into about 8 patties and place on prepared cookie sheet. Broil on low for about 5-10 minutes, flip and broil for an additional 2-4 minutes. Serve immediately.
