Every year I plant zucchini and harvest lots of them. And one of the favourites dish is zucchini pancakes with fresh sage. How good and not difficult to cook. In fact, it goes fast and I like to serve “the world’s fastest tomato sauce” to the zucchini pancakes. So I absolutely think you should try and make zucchini pancakes.

Great to eat as they are with the tomato sauce, or why not as an accompaniment to a piece of grilled salmon or grilled chicken. Here I show you how to make and how to make “the world’s fastest tomato sauce”


Here is another yummy recipe how you can cook on zucchini

This is what you need - recipe for 4 people

2-3 st zucchini ca: 800g
2-3 large boiled potatoes (you can also use raw potatoes) but I prefer boiled.
1 large yellow onion.
2-3 cloves of garlic.
1 dl oatmeal.
1 egg.
Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Butter and olive oil to fry in.
A few sprigs of fresh sage.

How to make zucchini pancakes:

  1. Try to find “hard” and dark green zucchini. This makes it easier to grate them on the grater. Grate them on the coarse side of the grater. Press zucchini firmly against the grater. Then grate the potatoes if you use raw potatoes. 

2.  Salt and pepper over the zucchini and let the salt “draw out the liquid” for a few minutes. When the salt has worked out, squeeze out the liquid with your hands in the bowl. I like to keep the liquid and let the oatmeal “swell” in the in the liquid. Pour the oatmeal into the bowl and mix again. Taste if it is enough with salt and pepper. Crack the egg and mix to a smooth batter.

3. Grate the onion and garlic into the batter.

4. Heat a frying pan with olive oil. Add the batter and shape into small pancakes. Let them lie still for a while in the pan so the batter binds. When the bottom is golden brown, turn them over and finish frying them. Add a spoon of of butter at the last minute and sprinkle over the sage leaves to get a little extra yummy flavor. Serve with tomato sauce / Yum yum…
