Victory at last! I don't know why, but I am deeply bothered when there is a vegetable that I don't like. Zucchini and summer squash both fall into that category, not so much because of taste but because of texture. They just get limp and disgusting immediately upon cooking. I know that you can make them into quick breads, but that is NOT eating your vegetables...that is dessert!
So I was really happy when I found this idea: use coarsely grated zucchini instead of potato and make fritters. Add some wicked fine flavors like oregano and Romano cheese, and your fritters will make a very satisfying dinner.
2 zucchini, coarsely grated
1 onion, coarsely grated
1 oz Romano cheese, coarsely grated (about 1/2 c)
1/3 to 1/2 c flour (start with less)
1/2 c chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 t fresh oregano, chopped
Salt and pepper
Olive oil for frying
Stir all ingredients together (not olive oil) in the order given. Drop the mixture by 1/4 c measures into a skillet coated with olive oil. Fry for a few minutes per side until cooked through. Drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve with yogurt, jam, syrup, or plain.
