  • 3 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Marinara sauce, warmed, optional


  1. Place zucchini in a colander to drain; squeeze well to remove excess liquid. Pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano until blended. Stir in flour just until moistened. Fold in zucchini and onion.
  3. Lightly grease a griddle with butter; heat over medium heat. Drop zucchini mixture by 1/4 cupfuls onto griddle; flatten to 1/2-in. thickness (3-in. diameter). Cook until golden brown, 4-5 minutes on each side. If desired, serve with marinara sauce.
