Florida Vegetable Recipe

Savory Florida Zucchini Cakes

(Photo Below)
Amount Ingredient
3 medium zucchini or yellow squash, or combination, grated
1 cup carrots, matchstick size
1 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour or fine bread crumbs
  kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Remove the extra liquid out of the grated zucchini/squash by wrapping in a towel, twisting and squeezing. Heat half of the oil; add carrot and onion and fry for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and zucchini and continue frying until liquid is mostly gone. Transfer to bowl and let cool. Mix in eggs, flour or bread crumbs, herbs and spices. Heat the rest of the oil, drop in small "pancakes" of the zucchini mixture, and fry until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Turn and fry another 4-5 minutes. Tip: Make a small batch of sour cream seasoned with salt and pepper to serve with the cakes.
