“Pancakes alle zucchine”

“Zucchine” or courgettes. Summer here in Italy is a time where I can find a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in the grocery or in a farmer’s market. One of the vegetables that I really love to buy is this vegetable called “zucchine” in Italian and courgettes in English. I think this vegetable is really fantastic! I can steam it, fill it with anything I want, bake it and even cook bread with it. So today, I thought of making some salted zucchine pancakes without having to use the oven (lately in Italy the weather is really very hot!) and to cook it without the need to fry it. So I thought of an old recipe posted in the blog “Tortine di zucchina” but this time, I didn’t want to use oil in cooking these zucchine pancakes.

So… I modified the old recipe into this:

380 grams grated fresh courgettes “zucchine

100 grams all purpose flour

50 grams grated Parmesan cheese

20 grams of olive oil

4 medium size eggs

10 grams salt

Mix above ingredients well.

Heat a non stick pancake pan.

Put an almost full laddle of the above pancake batter mixture.

Oh! I think I cooked the pancake for a total of 8 minutes. 🤔 I was able to make 7 medium size pancakes = 56 minutes! 💪🏻 (I never count the minutes when I cook but this time I wanted to know how much time it took me to make this dish…Passion = time just fly and the result is always something good!)

I turned it when the pancake looked like this…

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
