Zucchini Cakes

Each scrumptious morsel is totally satisfying and packed with vitamin-rich zucchini, yet strikingly low in calories, carbs, and fat.

  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 c. panko bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. Adobo spices
  • 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated


Remove excess liquid from freshly grated zucchini by placing them between paper towels and squeezing. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Heat a large pan on medium, and spray with Pam. Shape spoonfuls of the zucchini batter into 2-in. (diameter) patties, and drop onto the sizzling pan. Cook each side for about a minute and a half, or until the outside is golden brown. Finish the cakes off in the oven. Stick them on a baking pan and broil them for 1-2 minutes. Serve hot, alone or with ranch dressing.

Makes about 12 cakes.

  1. Subs for Adobe spice? You might want to try onion powder or garlic powder. I have made these cakes and they are delicious. The recipe I have also added a little grated yellow onion and grated carrot. They are basically fool-proof and delicious! I serve them with teriyaki steak and rice and sprinkle on a little soy sauce or teriyaki sauce on the zucchini cakes.

  2. These look Yummy.
