Absolutely delicious!! Will definitely make again.

We loved them better than potato pancakes
santina d. 6 Aug
Added spinach to the mix! Yummy! Will make again but probably a double batch

We tried this and loved it! Our personal preference is to add a bit of shredded cheese to the mixture. We also didn’t let it drain enough because we are just impatient! :)
Sofia 25 Jun
Absolutely great taste. Used 30gr flour to lighten them up, and added a bit of crushed black pepper and salt to the other ingredients of the sour cream dip

Extremely delicious & loved the fact that there was little flour.
Tamara Salinas 17 May
These were amazing! Definitely looking forward to having them again. We used it to replace pasta. Had meatballs and spaghetti sauce on top.
Paula H. 11 May
Very good, nice and crispy
Elaine Victor 24 Apr
So easy and really yummy!
Walter 23 Apr
I did like it, especially that zucchini is not my favorite vegetable.
Lori R. 21 Apr
We have made these since I was a kid. Always added parmesan cheese to them as well. The parm adds a lot of flavor. And I top with applesauce.
Anna Sanford 15 Apr
It was delicious! I didn't think it would be as tasty as it was. Definitely a redo!
Sarah 5 Mar
Pretty tasty! But definitely needed to pat some of the oil off after frying. The topping was amazing and zesty! Will make this again for sure after investing in some cheesecloth

A new staple for sure! Unfortunately mine did not come out as crispy as it should have, but this is likely due to my not getting enough moisture out of the zucchini in the beginning.
Lynn 10 Oct 2017
Absolutely delicious, they came out perfect! I substituted the sour cream for Greek yogurt when it came to the dip.

Great. Although I added a little garlic powder and fresh thyme to give it a bit more flavor. Easy and a great use for the abundant zucchini from our garden in the summer.
Hi 27 Jun 2017
Delicious! A slightly healthier latke, but still super yummy! I will definitely make this again.
Rhubarbarina G. 27 Aug 2016
Absolutely divine. I made exactly from the recipe. The lemon zest and juice give the fritters a wonderful little zing. I might try the dill suggested by Korrine as my husband loves dill.
Cindy W. 20 Aug 2016
It was good but was a little more dense than I like. I think I will add less flour next time. I did like the texture of the zucchini.
Julianna V. 7 Jul 2016
Wonderfully delicious. I absolutely love this little dish. The lemon zest sour cream goes perfectly and compliments the fritters.
Korinne W. 16 Aug 2015
Wow, these tasted just like potato cakes, but with less calories! This recipe was very good with a few modifications. Used a shallot instead of scallions and added some fresh dill to the fritters. They were phenomenal. Will be making them again, because they are delicious and a good way to eat up zucchini!
