ZUCCHINI FRITTERS
(serves 4)

Ingredients:
2 cups coarsely grated zucchini
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 beaten eggs
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. salt
olive oil

Mix together all ingredients except the olive oil. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Drop zucchini mixture by the tablespoon full into oil. Cook until golden brown on one side. Turn. Cook remaining side.

This is one of my favorite zucchini recipes. I love eating the fritters with a dollop of sour cream. Readers, what's your favorite zucchini recipe? -- AP
