Prep time

Cook time



  • 200g zucchini, grated
  • 200g carrot, grated
  • 1 corn cob, kernels cut from cob
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 50g parmesan, finely grated
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 free-range or organic eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  • Start by placing the grated zucchini and carrot on a paper towel or a clean tea towel and press to absorb any excess moisture.
  • Place the grated veggies, corn, garlic, parmesan, cumin, paprika and seasoning in a large bowl. Mix well so the veggies and spices are well distributed.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix well so the flour coats the vegetables. Add the eggs and mix to form a very thick batter.
  • Pour the olive oil into a pan and heat over a medium heat. Place about ¼ cup of batter in the hot oil and flatten slightly. Take care not to overcrowd the pan or it can become difficult to flip them.
  • Cook until golden brown on each side.
  • Tip: Make this recipe gluten-free by using a gluten-free flour or besan flour to replace the spelt.
