Fun and flavorful, these rustic veggie pancakes make a wonderfully versatile side dish. They’re also a great solution for what to do with all your extra zucchini! —Diana Johnson, Auburn, Washington

"These appear in the Aug/Sept 2010 magazine as Feta Zucchini Pancakes but on the website as Healthy Zucchini Pancakes....tried these for dinner tonight. I made 4 larger pieces instead of 8 little ones. These are delicious but need some salt and pepper. They are bland if you make them according to the recipe. You must be patient and let them get very brown before turning. Try them."

"I made the pancakes for breakfast. Will add more egg next time. I think they would be better as a side dish for a larger meal."

"why do anything other then homemade bread crumbs from your end pieces ect if you already have the food processor to shred the zucchini? my food processor btw is over 35 years old and still does a fine job! oh, and dill does have it's place and that's with cucumbers to be pickled and fish, poasted..."

"These were really good and full of time, might use just a little less dill (I used 1 teaspoon dried), but still good just as they are."

"I have made this recipe twice and we loved it. I make it without the cheese to save calories and fat and it is delicious."
