Crispy. Savory. Vegetable-y. These zucchini cakes are a great new way to use up some of those easy-to-grow garden gems.
Wash and cut the ends off of one large zucchini. Shred it using the large holes of a cheese grater. Squeeze the shredded zucchini inside of a clean towel until you’ve removed as much liquid as possible.
Place shredded zucchini into a medium-sized bowl. Add minced garlic, breadcrumbs, cheese, eggs, salt and pepper. Stir with a fork until well mixed.
Heat olive oil (about 1/4″ deep in bottom of skillet) to a medium heat. When the oil is hot enough, drop a glob of the zucchini batter into the skillet and flatten it a little bit with a fork. After about two minutes, turn the cakes over (they should be a nice, golden-brown) and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until done.
Serve with dipping sauce of your choice.

I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
