INGREDIENTS
1 lb. zucchini, shredded (about 3 medium)
1 medium onion, finely diced
3 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tbsp flour
1 large egg
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp chopped basil
salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
Place the zucchini in a colander, sprinkle lightly with salt, toss, and let drain 1/2 an hour.
Pat zucchini dry. Heat one tbs. oil in a nonstick skillet and cook the onion on low heat until soft. Add the minced garlic and zucchini, and cook until zucchini is golden brown. Add the flour and cook the raw taste out, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and transfer mixture to a bowl.
Beat the egg lightly and add it to the bowl, then stir in cheese and basil. Season to taste, then shallow fry in the remaining two tbs. olive oil until warmed through and brown on the outside. Drain a minute, then serve.
