Zucchini Scallion Pancakes

I always grill zucchinis, stir fry ’em, saute ’em, stew ’em but never ever thought of turning them into pancakes…

I had no intention on giving zucchinis a pancake makeover until I saw the recipe of Zucchini pancakes at My Fabulous Recipes. I honestly screamed with joy when I landed on this recipe. I’ve found a new way of devouring zucchinis. Also, this recipe came to me on the perfect day when I was looking for ways to do something with the zucchinis that had been sitting in my refrigerator. I bookmarked this recipe right away and had made these pancake for breakfast, next morning. What a perfect way to start the day! I enriched my body with these pancake and I was seen energetic and healthy for the rest of that day.

I added scallions instead of red onions, you could make your own twist to this recipe by adding different spices and veggies.
