Potato-Zucchini Pancakes
Save time preparing these Potato-Zucchini Pancakes by shredding both the potato and the zucchini in a food processor fitted with a shredding disc.

Ingredients
1 medium baking potato, unpeeled and shredded
1/2 small zucchini, shredded
1 green onion, thinly sliced, plus additional for garnish
1 egg white
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Sour cream (optional)

Directions
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 3 pancakes

1 – Combine potato, zucchini, 1 green onion, egg white, and flour in medium bowl; mix well.

2 – Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/3 cupfuls potato mixture into skillet; flatten slightly. Cook 5 minutes per side or until browned.

Tip: Save time by shredding both the potato and zucchini in a food processor fitted with a shredding disc. There’s no need to wash the bowl in between because all the ingredients are mixed together before cooking.
