Quick Preparation, Fast and Easy, Vegetarian


Very easy-- and very good!

Active Time: 20 minutes
Start to Finish: 30 minutes

ingredients

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup whole or 2% milk
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil

directions

In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In another bowl, beat together the egg, milk, zucchini, and onions. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Using a large skillet, heat 1 Tbs. of oil over medium heat. Pour the batter by tablespoons into the pan, making a few pancakes at a time. Cook about 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Add the remaining oil to the pan as needed. Serve pancakes at once.

Notes

The original recipe was called Vegetable Pancakes, and instead of the 2 cups of grated zucchini, called for one cup each of grated zucchini and grated carrot. Bob doesn't like carrots, so I used all zucchini, but feel free to make the original version.

tips

Kosher v. table salt
We always use kosher salt in our cooking because its crystals dissolve better in water than ordinary table salt. However, kosher and table salt are not equivalent when you are measuring amounts for a recipe. To further confuse matters, different types of kosher salt measure differently. If a recipe calls for table salt (or just salt), and the amounts are relatively small (e.g., one teaspoon), we simply use the amount called for in the recipe. You can always add a bit more salt to taste. If however, the recipe calls for larger amounts of salt, as would be the case, for example, in a brine, then you should convert the amount called for. Most sources cite 2 types of kosher salt as being widely available: Morton (which is what we use) and Diamond Crystal (which none of us have ever been able to find.) In any case, to convert the amount of table salt to Morton Kosher Salt, multiply the table salt by 1.5; to convert to Diamond Crystal, multiply by 2.
