    Ingredients:

    • 4 medium zucchini, grated 
    • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided  
    • ⅓ cup potato starch, or tapioca flour
    • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese

    Directions:
    Heat oven to 250°F. 

    Stir together zucchini and ¼ teaspoon of the salt in a large wire-mesh strainer set over a large bowl. 

    Let stand until zucchini has released water, about 15 minutes. Discard liquid. 

    Place zucchini in a kitchen towel, and squeeze to remove excess water. Add zucchini to a large dry bowl.

    Add potato starch, Parmesan, eggs, and garlic to bowl with zucchini; stir until combined.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. 

    Add 1 heaping tablespoon zucchini mixture to skillet, and use a spoon to flatten into a 3-inch round. 

    Repeat to make more fritters. 

    Cook about 2 minutes, until golden brown and slightly crisp. 

    Flip and cook another minute or so, until bottom side is crisp and golden. 

    Place cooked fritters on a large baking sheet lined with a wire rack.

    Move rack to a warm, 250°F, oven.

    Working in batches, cook the remaining fritters. Place on rack as you go.

    When done, sprinkle cooked fritters with remaining ½ teaspoon salt. 

    Top with sour cream and chives, and serve warm.

    I’m hard pressed to find any food that isn’t made better by adding melted cheese. Gratins are a great way to serve up a variety of vegetable and traditional gratins, which typically contain breadcrumbs and flour, are easily adaptable to better suit a gluten-free diet. I love dishes that encourage variation.

    Actually I just found the document. It says "Small left parietal white matter developmental venous anomaly with probable associated cavernous malformation. No adjacent edema or acute hemorrhage."
    I actually had a brain MRI during my first episode last year because they wanted to rule out a stroke. My MRI said cavernous malformation with veinous anomaly but the doctor said my MRI was normal. I was wondering if you had specific terminology...
