Zucchini Feta Pancakes

These zucchini feta pancakes are our favorite vegetable pancakes and one of our favorite ways of eating zucchini.

Zucchini! Incredibly versatile, cheap, and healthy, the one vegetable which could overwhelm you with its availability in summer. Everyone with a garden knows that: if there is one vegetable that tends to grow out of your ears then it’s the zucchini.

You don’t even have to grow vegetables to know that. I don’t have veggies in my garden, but still have more zucchini thrown into my direction in summer than we can possibly consume … I remember the first year a friend, who loves gardening, started growing vegetables in her garden. She actually planted nine zucchini plants and had enough zucchini to feed the whole village. 🙂

Ingredients

Veggies:

  • This recipe is suitable for regular of for overgrown garden zucchini as well, there are always a few super large ones that don’t get picked in time. Using them for making sweet and sour zucchini pickles is also a great idea!

Herbs:

  • Parsley, chives, dill, or any other fresh herbs you like.
  • You can also use frozen herbs.
  • I often make these feta pancakes with parsley paste, which also contains chives, garlic, and lots of salt. If you use my parsley paste, be careful with the salt you will add to the batter, the paste is very salty.
  • You can also replace the herbs with 3-4 teaspoons pesto of choice (to taste, actually).

Cheese:

  • I make the pancakes with feta most of the time, definitely, feta bought in a block and not already crumbled feta.
  • Alternatively, you could try another cheese of choice, something with a stronger taste.

How to serve?

  • The zucchini feta pancakes are best served hot, but cold leftovers are great as well.
  • The recipe is supposed to serve 4, but the pancakes are quite large, so you might be able to feed 6 with them, we had leftovers every time.
  • We normally serve them with a green salad or tomato salad.

Soft, savory zucchini feta pancakes with lots of herbs, probably one of the tastiest ways of enjoying zucchini.

Ingredients

  • 180 g/ 6.4 oz/ 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 large eggs/
  • 250 ml/ 8 fl.oz/ 1 cup milk
  • 400 g/ 14 oz zucchini
  • 120 g/ 4.2 oz feta cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • small bunch of herbs (Note)
  • generously fine sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • some nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons oil

Instructions

  1. Place the flour in a large bowl. Add the eggs, one or two at a time and mix well. Add the milk and mix until smooth. Cover the bowl and leave to rest for about 15 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, grate the zucchini finely. Squeeze them by the handful to release the extra liquid. Add to the pancake batter, add the crumbled feta cheese, grated garlic and finely chopped herbs (or pesto) and adjust the taste with salt, pepper and some nutmeg. Taste the batter to make sure you have enough salt.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pan (mine has a diameter of 28 cm/ 11 inches) and pour in ¼ of the batter. Turn the heat down to medium-low and cook the pancake for about 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned on the underside. Flip gently using a large spatula or with the help of a large plate. Place the plate on top of the pancake, hold it with one hand, and flip the pan with the other hand, so that the pancake will fall on the plate. Gently let the pancake slide from the plate back into the pan and cook it on the other side for another 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
  4. Keep warm while you cook the other three pancakes.
  5. Serve immediately with a green or tomato-onion salad.

Notes

For instance, parsley, dill or chives.

You can replace the herbs and garlic with 3-4 teaspoons pesto.

Great use for zucchini and love how golden brown your beautiful pancakes turned out. I make “normal”/sweet pancakes so often for breakfast that it would be a lovely change to go savory!
