This savoury kind of pancake uses a light, fluffy batter with the season’s freshest produce. Don’t forget to share the moment you plate it on Instagram #youplateit. Happy cooking!

Prepare Ingredients:

Wash the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the roots of the spring onions; thinly slice the spring onions. Peel the garlic cloves; mince 1 clove. Mince the other clove; then, using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste. Using a box grater, shred the carrot and zucchini. Cut the zucchini into thin matchsticks (or grate using a box grater, then squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible). Core and very thinly slice the cabbage. Cut the lemon into 6 wedges.

Make Batter:

In a large bowl, combine half the spring onions with the minced garlic, carrot, zucchini, cabbage, ¾ cup of water and some salt. Crack the egg into a separate, small bowl. Using a fork, briefly beat the egg, then add it to the bowl of vegetables. Gradually sprinkle in the flour. Stir gently until just combined.

Carefully flip and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat this process with the remaining batter.
