Lovin' Zucchini

I am loving my Zucchini "Latkes"! I came across a recipe for Carrot Latkes (have you ever had potato pancakes? Kind of the same thing...) Since I did not plant carrots and I have a TON of zucchini, I thought I'd try out the recipe...My version, any way ;)

1 Zucchini, grated
1/2 onion, grated (wrap in a paper towel and squeeze out liquid)
2 finely diced celery stalks
1/4 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs
3 egg whites
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp Mrs Dash Garlic and herb mix
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat griddle over medium heat. Mix all ingredients. Place a spoonful of the zucchini mixture onto the griddle ( or 4). Cook patties until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
You can top them with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Or...I made turkey tacos and topped them with turkey, spring mix, fresh salsa. black beans and Greek yogurt! Fantastic!
