kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Box grater 
  • Colander
  • Large bowl
  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cup
  • Large skillet
  • Tablespoon
  • Spatula

Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (about 2 medium-sized zucchini)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2⁄3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3⁄4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 scallions, greens and whites, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • Put the shredded zucchini in the colander and sprinkle with the salt. Set the colander in the bowl.
  • Using your hand, press down on the zucchini so that as much liquid as possible drains out into the bowl. Stir the zucchini and repeat. Throw away the liquid.
  • Put the zucchini in the bowl and add the eggs, flour, cheese, and scallions. Mix well.
  • Put the skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium. When the skillet is hot (flick some water on — it should dance and evaporate immediately), add the oil.
  • Using the tablespoon, scoop blobs of the zucchini mixture from the bowl and spread it into a round, flat nest on the skillet: it should make a circle that's about 2 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick. Repeat to fill the skillet.
  • Cook until the bottoms are deeply golden, about 5 minutes, then turn the pancakes over and cook 5 more minutes. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
