  • Clean the zucchini and remove the ends. Use the food processor’s grater attachment or grate using one of the box grater’s large holes. After adding 1 tsp salt and putting the zucchini in a big mixing basin, let it sit for ten minutes.

 

  • After ten minutes, drain excess water from the zucchini by tightly squeezing handfuls of them over the sink. If you have a cheesecloth, it helps to wring it out. How much water comes out is amazing! Three and a half to four cups of dry, squeezed zucchini should be the result. Move to a sizable mixing basin.

  • Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a large, heavy-bottomed cast iron or nonstick skillet and place it over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add a generous tablespoon of the zucchini mixture at a time and gently press down on the tops to form pancake-like shapes. Sauté until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Lower the heat if they brown too rapidly. Top with a spoonful of sour cream, and serve warm.
