Savory Zucchini Cakes

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.

Zucchini Cakes

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.
