Zucchini Pancakes with Sheep Cheese

These are zucchini based vegetable pancakes with a bit of fresh sheep cheese, which can be optional if you don’t like sheep cheese, but to my opinion it benefits a lot to the taste.

You can use zucchini or other kind of summer squash; remove seeds they already formed before cooking.

Vegetable pancakes are good choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Serve them warm with sour cream or sour cream and garlic dip how I did.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: if you don’t like taste of sheep cheese you can replace it with any other cheese to your taste, or skip it all together, but I like these pancakes made with “brynza”:

  2. Skin zucchinis, if they are more mature and have seeds formed already – remove seeds as well, then grate zucchinis on medium-sized slots of your grater:

  4. And set aside for about 15 mins in warm place, grated zucchini will produce a lot of juice and we are trying to remove most of it:

  13. Add sifted flour, amount of flour you need will vary greatly depending on how good of the job you did removing the juices, for me it took about 1/2 cup, just pay attention to a dough you get, it shouldn’t be too thin to drip from the spoon but it should be still possible to scoop it with a spoon:
