I'm always looking for ways to make less expensive meatless meals for my family. These Zucchini Potato Pancakes make a great meatless entree. Feeding a family of 5 can get pricey so I like to incorporate potatoes into recipes when possible. I usually buy organic potatoes because they're one of the most pesticide laden vegetables out there with up to 35 pesticides. Check it out. I'm willing to pay a little more per pound to avoid carcinogens and other toxins. Zucchini is pretty inexpensive already, but even better if you can grow them yourself! My husband's garden gave us some great zucchini crop this year as you'll see pictured below. You can't beat home grown.
Zucchini Potato Combo
I have trouble getting my kids to eat zucchini. Two of our boys love vegetables, but zucchini is usually not a favorite with any of them. Our third boy absolutely despises zucchini and refuses to eat them, no matter what form they're in; until these pancakes came along. All 3 boys will actually eat these potato pancakes since the zucchini is not very noticeable. That's success in my book!
Savory Potato Pancakes
If you're looking for a different way to serve up dinner, a big plate of savory potato pancakes on the table can make for a nice change for a meatless meal. Afterall, who doesn't like pancakes? A good savory pancake can really comfort hungry bellies. Try these zucchini potato pancakes with a creamy or spicy sauce for a kick too. I like to serve these with a horseradish sriracha cream sauce or a lemon chive yogurt sauce.
