Count Broccula's veg-head ramblings

My home experiments with vegetarian cooking. Focused on seasonal produce with some vegan stuff thrown in for good measure. I may include random other food-related stuff as I please.

Pancakes from heaven (savory style)

Tonight I had a bunch of summer veggies to use -- zucchini and tomatoes in particular. I decided to make zucchini pancakes.

For the pancakes.

3 med/small zucchini
1/2 medium yellow onion
1 1/3 cup potatoes (approximate)
1/4 cup feta
black pepper
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
2 Tbs flour

Steam the potatoes (or microwave, I don't care) until they can be pierced easily with a fork. Grate the onion, zucchini, and cooked potatoes in a food processor. Pour into a medium bowl, add beaten eggs, crumbled feta, flour, and lots of fresh grated black pepper. Mix well.

Heat a non-stick griddle pan or other flat pan on the stove on medium high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Drop the pancake mixture in large spoonfuls onto the hot pan, spread out until they are even, and coook 2-3 minutes on both sides. They should turn nicely brown.

For the sauce

1 large tomato
1 medium onion
1 medium gypsy pepper
1 hot pepper
2 large cloves garlic.

As long as you've got the food processor out, switch blades and blend this mixture to a chunky liquid.

I put a generous amount of this sauce onto the plates, dripped balsamic glaze around the edge (not necessary, I was just being fancy), and piled the pancakes on top of the sauce. Sweetie called them "pancakes from heaven" and went back for seconds.
