Reviews for Healthy Zucchini Pancakes
"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 flavor...next 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."
"This were tasty and a nice, healthy alternative to the fried potato latkes that I love!"
"Made these again using shredded zucchini from last year's garden (frozen) and it still tasted great! Thanks for the recipe"
"I thought they needed a little salt so I added 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of season salt and about 3 dashes of pepper. I didn't have any fresh herbs so I substituted 1 teaspoon dried for 1 tablespoon of fresh.They were FANTASTIC."
"They are really tasty and I enjoyed them very much. I had them as a side vegetable with pan fried chicken and the flavours went together wonderful. I will be making these again for sure."
"Very easy and very good. Would make them again!"
"Love them! I added some fresh mint, which goes well with the feta!"
"I didn't have any Feta, so I used Gorgonzola and added 2 TBS chopped cashews. It was very tasty. I would definately try it with Feta next time. I would also use only 1/2 TBS fresh dill as it overpowers the other flavors. I'm lookinig forward to trying this one again!"
"These were delicious! Even the zucchini hating members of family liked them!"
"The only change I would make next time is to cook the garlic a little before adding it to the mixture to mellow it out a little. These are bursting with flavor! I can't wait to make them again. Maybe I will...tomorrow!"
"These were great! I omit the onion..just because.. and didn't miss it. I have made these twice and will make them many times more. I will play around with the spices..maybe a hint of nutmug???The appy idea is wonderful....did you use a dip?"
"This is wonderful and easy! I will definitely make it again."
"ooops....forgot to rate! LOL!"
"FABULOUS ! I made them smaller for appetizer's & they were a GREAT hit!"
