Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Tasty Tuesdays: Zucchini Pancakes

Daydreamers! I’ve fallen behind on posting again. With summer in full swing I’ve had little time to write but I have been watching my garden go crazy. J and I have zucchini practically coming out of our ears and honestly I’m getting a little tired of roasting it over the grill every night. If you’re in the same boat or even looking for something different to cook up for dinner tonight, I invite you try my Zucchini & Sweet Potato Pancakes! Let’s dig in.

What you need:

  • 2-3 medium zucchini, grated (largest grate option)
  • 1 sweet potato, grated (largest grate option)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp flour (I used all-purpose gluten-free flour)
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • cooking oil (I prefer coconut oil, great flavor)

What you do:

Wring as much moisture out of the grated zucchini and potato as you can. Either using a cheese cloth or by hand with a colander.

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bow and mix thoroughly.

Heat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and get a cookie sheet out.

Add 2 tbsp of oil to a large skillet and bring to medium heat. Drop 1/2 c. servings of the zucchini mixture on the heated skillet and mash into a patty with the spatula. Cook until brown, flip and repeat. Remove pancake from skillet and place on cookie sheet in preheated oven to keep warm until all pancakes are cooked. Repeat until the zucchini mixture is used up. Add oil to the skillet as needed.

Garnish it with a dollop of sour cream or, if you’re like J and I, a drizzle of Sriracha.

    Betty is (tries, anyhow) on a no-carb kick, but i will suggest THIS to her — she likes Zucchini (sp, yeah) and i could/should convince her that sweet potatoes are healthier than regulars … this looks good! (just a “drizzle” of siricha?)

    Interesting. I’ve learned that this veggie is pretty versatile. Ever tried zucchini steaks coated with cornmeal and Parmesan? Num num!
