Savoury Chickpea Zucchini Pancake

Savoury Chickpea Zucchini Pancake

Pancakes just got a makeover.

This savoury chickpea zucchini pancake is the next best thing since sliced bread, for real. I love making this pancake for lunch, stuffed with my favourite toppings like avocado and fresh greens. Chickpea flour is packed with plant-based protein and fibre and will keep you satiated and energized for the day. I love the grated zucchini because it gives it a savoury flavour and hearty texture. Add your favourite spices and you’ve got yourself a delicious lunch!

This is the chickpea flour I used – it’s made with garbanzo (chickpea) beans and fava beans to give it a hearty flavour. It’s packed with goodness, giving this dish at least a whopping 14g of protein per serving and 20% of your daily recommended iron intake.

  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • spices: pinch of turmeric and/or paprika

  • Toppings: avocado, leafy greens, cherry tomatoes, red pepper slices, sauerkraut, organic ketchup, etc.
  • Step 1 In a mixing bowl, add the chickpea flour and water. Add the shredded zucchini.
  • Step 2 Add the spices and mix until no clumps are left.
  • Step 3 In a pan on low-medium heat, add the oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the pan and using a spoon, spread the batter so it spreads to the edges of the pan, like a crepe.
  • Step 4 Cook for 2 minutes, or until little bubbles form, and then flip to the other side for another 2 minutes. Do the same for the second pancake.
  • Step 5 Serve warm and fill with your favourite toppings!
