Zucchini pancakes with Grana Padano

Zucchini pancakes with Grana Padano


  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 200 g Grana Padano PDO
  • 2 baby onions
  • 80 g white flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Heart and cheese


Preparation time: 20 min
Cooking time: 6 min

Beat the egg with two tablespoons of water, salt and pepper. Add the sifted flour and mix to a smooth batter. Grate the zucchini and place them on a sheet, so as to eliminate all the moisture they contain. Then stir in two tablespoons of oil until they are crispy and golden brown.
When they are cold, add them to the batter, and shape disks with a spoon to then fry in very hot olive oil. Keep the discs well apart and flatten with a spoon. Cook on both sides for about 3 minutes.

Prepare the dish by placing the flakes of Grana Padano PDO on top of each pancake, wet with a dash of balsamic vinegar and garnish as desired.
