    Ingredients
    Serves: 3 

    • 200g courgette, grated and pressed
    • 3 eggs
    • 5 tablespoons flour
    • 1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 stem of mint, finely chopped
    • salt

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. For the batter, beat the eggs, flour, parsley, mint, salt and courgette in a bowl. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan (18cm diameter) and add a few tablespoons of batter for the first pancake. Flip when the edges are dry and bubbles form on the surface. Repeat to cook 5 more pancakes, one after the other, with 1 tablespoon oil; keep them warm under foil or in the oven as you are working.
    2. For the filling, heat the oil in a frying pan and saute the pepper for 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and mix with feta cheese and mint. If necessary, season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon filling onto the hot pancakes, fold and serve.

    My pancakes turned out like thick American ones, so I placed the filling on top. I didn't add salt to the red pepper and feta, as the cheese made it salty enough. My husband, who doesn't like courgettes, actually enjoyed this dish. I paired it with pork chops and apple sauce. The taste of the pancakes is made interesting by the herbs, and the feta and red pepper compliment them well. I would make this again. - 06 Aug 2011

    Very filling, tasty and healthy. That batter looked a bit thick to me so added a little milk. The pancakes were still quite thick and very filling. I varied the filling a bit but you could have endless different fillings. Thanks. - 20 Aug 2014
