These are similar to my latkes, and yet much lighter and perfect for lunch, brunch, dinner or a quick snack. They also make a good base for poached eggs or a healthy, lively addition to a salad.
4 small or 3 medium zucchini
1 tbsp shredded onion (you want these super-fine)
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sorghum flour plus 2 tbsp more if needed
1 tsp baking powder
1 whole egg plus 1 additional yolk
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
olive oil for frying
Oven to 300. Grate zucchini by hand or use food processor. Wrap in dishcloth to begin drying out the strands. You may do this the night before and, the next morning, change the towel. Press liquid from onion. Dry the zucchini as much as you can, changing towels as needed. Sprinkle zucchini with salt. This will make more liquid come out, so dry again. Add onion. Sprinkle zucchini and onion with sorghum flour and baking powder. Add eggs and cheese and mix well. The mixture should be wet enough to form clumps but not so wet that you have lots of liquid dripping off. If too wet, add a bit more flour. Heat oil in skillet. Fry 1/4 cup portions, flattening as you go, letting each side get crispy. Finish cooking in oven. You can freeze these and reheat, as with the latkes.
