5. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to the hot oil and cook for one minute

7. Place on paper towels to soak up any grease that sticks to the pancake

The courgette actually forms the main base of the pancake, which helps to reduce the calorie intake and increases the Vitamin C too. Feta is a sheep’s milk cheese, and is therefore a bit lower in lactose and sometimes easier on digestion for people. The traditional pancake’s flour has also been swapped for the quinoa-variety, which is gluten free and rich in magnesium and zinc –  good for skin, energy levels and the immune system. The recipe mentions Himalayan pink sea salt, which is generally more beneficial than regular salt because of its lower sodium levels and other positive minerals.
