It’s not exactly the season for zucchinis at the moment but nevertheless I wanted to share with you my favorite recipe for zucchini pancakes. I made these beauties some time ago, when the late summer sun was shining through my kitchen window as you might sense in the pictures. Right now, when it’s cold and dark outside, I am dreaming back to those days and the peak season of all my favorite veggies including zucchini!
Serve Zucchini Pancakes with Sour Cream, or Smoked Salmon or maybe even Cottage Cheese!
Luckily I can still get organic zucchinis in my local supermarket, although not Danish they are still tasteful and makes it possible for me to make these pancakes all year long! I’ve chosen to serve these zucchini pancakes with a low fat dill sour cream and toasted pumpkin seeds. And I can really recommend that you try serving them with some smoked salmon. It’s the best. Ohh… I almost forgot. Try mixing cottage cheese with dill and serve it along with these babies. It is also really, really good!
