Zucchini Flats

"Don't be put off by the simplicity of this dish. This is very similar to a focaccia, but without yeast and simpler to make. It is meant to be thin and crispy. I use a swiss roll tray measuring 20 cm x 30 cm. This is important so that the batter will be thin and crisp up nicely."

  1. You are right, its very simple but also delicious. I did not have exactly 300 grams zucchini but it did not matter. This was very nice served with a pasta dish. The sides were very crispy, the middle a bit softer. Leftovers reheated very well the next day and I will make this again!!!


I live in a beautiful village on the island of Malta ( Europe) with my wonderful daughter, partner and two cats. I love the vineyards infront of my house or walking down to the valley of olive trees. ( I do pick olives every year) Some years ago I stopped working as a chef but still do a lot of home cooking. What I miss are the expensive ingredients I worked with, its rather hard cooking on a tight budget. My aim is to produce recipes that are very economical and yet nutritious. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <embed src="http://babystrology.com/tickers/baby-ticker-glass.swf?parent=Mommy&year=2010&month=7&day=28&babycount=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="120" height="180"></embed>
