This is a great way to get your kids eating more vegetables. You can make this with zucchini or yellow summer squash, for a hit of Vitamin A.
You will need:
2 medium zucchini
2 tsp. salt
4 scallions (green onions), minced
¼ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup dill
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup grated parmesan
¼ cup flour
Grate the zucchini into a colander in the sink. Toss with salt and let it sit for 10 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid or press it out with a towel reserved for kitchen use.
Add everything else (scallions, parsley, dill, egg, and Parmesan cheese, and flour). Mix well.
Pan-fry spoonfuls of the mixture in olive oil, flattening with a spatula, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and season with salt.
