CSA 7: Zucchini Pancakes

So it started with greens, lots and lots of greens.  Lately its not so much the greens as it is the zucchini.  I mean I like zucchini but 10 zucchini in 2 weeks is really pushing the envelope.

I've sauteed zucchini, had zucchini and pasta, baked zucchini & carrot muffins, I've eaten raw zucchini (in salads, with humus).  But but by far the tastiest way to eat zucchini had been zucchini pancakes... Probably because they are full of cheese and cooked in butter - how could they not be awesome?

Zucchini Pancakes
2 zucchini, shredded
small onion, shredded
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used a mix of Asiago, mozzarella, cheddar, provolone & Parmesan)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon Adobo
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, lightly beaten

Mix the veggies and the cheese, and in a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients.  Mix the flour mix with the vegetable mix until; well incorporated. Then mix in the egg.  Let sit for at least 20 minutes.  Heat some olive oil and butter in a large skillet.  Form patties out of the mix and cook in the pan, about 5-8 minutes per side.
