Zucchini Fritters

Just had a lovely weekend with Friends of Food, Jen and Kris.  To top off all of the incredible hospitality, Jen sent us home with some produce from her food co-op.  I couldn't wait to make something of this gift, so  tonight's dinner included a peach and plum fruit salad and zucchini fritters.  The fritters I found on my favorite Flickr recipe group called Recipes to Share. This recipe was originally posted by Vita Arina at this link

I am going to expand upon it a bit here because I want to share it with Jen and other busy cooks who might be looking for a simple zucchini dish to cook up in a short amount of time.

Zucchini Fritters

Grate 1 Zucchini into a large bowl.

Press any excess liquid out of it with a paper towel.

Into this bowl, mix:
2 large eggs
8-9 tablespoons all-purpose flour,
2/3 cup plain yogurt,
1 TBSP Parmesan cheese
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste.

Heat 1-2 TBSP of Olive Oil in a large frying pan.

Drop spoonfuls of the Zucchini Mix into the Frying Pan, trying to keep a circular shape, like dollar pancakes.

When the edges start to brown, flip the fritters.  Continue to fry up like pancakes.

Put them on a plate, covering the cooling ones with the latest out of the frying pan to keep the stack warm.

Serve it with Ranch Dressing, or Herb Yogurt Sauce.
