The great thing about food blogs is that they let you experiment and try something uncommon and different from usual. In fact, the other day I was searching an original way to do something with zucchini and I came across this interesting recipe by Key Lime Pie Kitchen (thank you blogger friend for this amazing recipe!).
Well, I tried it and it was delicious. I made ​​some minor modifications (because at the moment I had only potato and zucchini, so I couldn’t add any other type of vegetable), so here’s to you my pictures and my own version.


  • 2 large zucchini;
  • 3 medium potatoes;
  • ½ cup of durum wheat flour (can be replaced with any type of gluten free flour);
  • 2 tablespoons of  breadcrumbs;
  • Salt and black pepper;
  • a sprinkle of grated nutmeg;
  • 2 eggs;
  • abundant peanut oil for frying.


1- With food processor or by hand with a grater, grate the zucchini and potatoes, previously washed and, in the case of potatoes, peeled.
2- Place potatoes and zucchini in the colander and squeeze out as much as possible in order to remove water in excess (I have also used kitchen paper towels to absorb water).
3- Beat the eggs in a bowl. Make the batter by adding flour, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Mix everything well and add the potatoes and zucchini and, just in case, add a bit of extra salt. Keep stirring until everything is well combined.

4- Heat the peanut oil in a frying pan at medium-high heat. Make sure it is very hot before putting the pancake mixture, by pouring a small quantity of the mix. If the oil sizzles around this piece, then you can proceed.
5- With a spoon or hands, give to the mix the shape of a pancake, one by one and, then fry them. When the edges turn golden, turn them on the other side. When they are ready, place them on a plate covered with absorbent kitchen paper and remove the oil in excess.

6- Serve hot, if you want to exaggerate with the fat, put on some cheese slices.

Buon Appetito!
