Ingredients :

  • 200g zucchini, washed and grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 160g wholemeal flour
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • 200ml of vegetable milk of your choice (such as almond, soy or oat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • A little olive oil for cooking

Preparation :

  1. Preparing the zucchini:

    • Wash the zucchini carefully under cold water.
    • Using a grater, grate the zucchini into fine filaments. Lightly squeeze the grated zucchini to remove excess moisture.
    • Set the grated zucchini aside in a bowl.
  2. Preparation of the dough:

    • In a large bowl, beat the eggs until well combined and slightly foamy.
    • Add the vegetable milk to the egg mixture and mix until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
    • Gradually incorporate the wholemeal flour and baking powder into the liquid mixture. Stir until you have a smooth, lump-free paste.
  3. Adding flavors:

    • Add the grated zucchini to the dough. Make sure they are well distributed in the dough.
    • Add grated parmesan for a touch of umami flavor.
    • Season the dough with a pinch of salt and pepper, adjusting to your preference.
  4. Cooking pancakes:

    • Heat a small amount of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
    • Using a ladle, pour the batter into the pan to form circles of the desired size.
    • Cook the pancakes for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and bubbles form on the surface.
    • Repeat the process until all the batter is used, adding a little more oil to the pan as needed.

Presentation: Arrange the savory zucchini pancakes on a plate and optionally garnish them with a few sprigs of fresh chives for a touch of color and freshness. Serve them hot with a light salad for a balanced and delicious meal. These pancakes are a creative way to add vegetables to your meal while still enjoying yourself.
