Have you ever found a food that is in your top 10?
Pesto & Basil are one of mine.
Basil how do I love thee, let me count the ways:
- Shredded in salads
- On sandwiches
- Shreds on top of many main dishes and soups
- PESTO….on pasta, corn on the cob, toast, chicken, baked potatoes, etc
- And the most important….on a spoon or finger.
This week I made this beautiful, easy dish.
Zucchini Pancakes topped with Pesto and served with fresh Tomatoes.
2 cups whole wheat sourdough starter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 medium sized, tender zucchini, grated
In mixing bowl; add sourdough starter, salt, baking soda and eggs. Mix till smooth. Add grated zucchini.
Heat a griddle on medium high heat. Great generously with coconut oil. Drop 1/3 cup spoonfuls of batter onto griddle. Cook till bubbles pop on top and flip.
