Zucchini Pancakes



Had a whole load of zucchinis from @magicorganicsco land on my doorstep so I had to figure out what to do. I am SO bored with stir-fried watery zucchini because ... bleh.


So I tweaked the recipe from @theconsciousplantkitchen a bit to make zucchini pancakes and went from there. I used a non-stock pan from JHC so we didn't need to use oil at home and it came out great. Also meant I felt less bad about finishing everything :)

  • 2/3 cup oat flour

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 cup plant milk

  • 1/2 tsp parsley, dried or double for fresh

  • 1/2 tsp thyme

  • 1/4 tsp chili powder

  • 2 stems spring onion

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Olive oil - optional

Sauce
