  • 1 large egg
  • cup shallots finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups summer squash or zucchini, shredded seeded, or a mixture of both
  • ½ cup cheese grated, or any hard cheese i.e., Pecorino Romano or Soy Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. After shredding squash, place on paper towels or a kitchen towel, cover with another towel and squeeze to soak up the liquid. (The squash should be dehydrated, or the patties will fall apart.)
  • Beat egg in a large bowl and add shallots, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the squash and cheese and mix to combine all ingredients well.
  • Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Measure 1/3 cup of the mixture and form a patty. Repeat. The recipe should make about four cakes.
  • Cook patties in skillet until browned and crispy on the bottom. Turn to cook another side. When browned on both sides, transfer patties to a metal baking dish. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Garnish with a little chopped parsley and serve.
