Zucchini Pancakes with Scallion and Dill

These glorious pancakes are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply as an appetizer. Crispy on the outside and oh so creamy once you break into one. 

Filled with fresh herbs, oats, and grated zucchini, these green wonders are really nutritious. In addition to being low in calories, these pancakes are also low in carbs.

What a perfect way to sneak in some veggies into a lunch box. For a particularly finicky customer, an addition of a quarter cup of their favorite shredded cheese will do the trick.

When entertaining, I make smaller sized pancakes and serve them with crème fraiche and smoked salmon.  Another option I love is a quick and easy dip to serve along these pancakes. Just combine Greek yogurt with herbs and a crushed garlic clove.
