This is a great recipe to make in the summer if you're like me and have an abbundance zucchini from the gardens of all your friends.

Great cakes. Served with Recipe #470659. Will use less dill or leave out next time for my tastes but loved the feta. Great hint about only 5 min. drain time for the zucchini.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the grated zucchini and salt.
  2. Set aside for 5 minutes, but no more or it will be mushy.
  3. Rinse in cold water and squeeze dry in a towel or press in a strainer until dry.
  4. Combine the cheese, egg, green onions, flour, pine nuts, dill, oregano, garlic, and pepper in a large bowl; fold in the zucchini.
  5. Form into 24 small cakes (about 2 tbsp of mixture for each) and saute in olive oil, turning once, until brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Serve immediately.
  7. A good cucumber, gyro type sauce is great to serve on the side with these.
