Courgette pancakes

Makes 8

600-700g courgettes
1 onion, grated
3 Tbsp flour

¼ tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Grate the courgette and onion and place in a colander to drain (10-20 minutes).

Squeeze the courgette mixture in your hands to remove excess moisture. Place into a medium sized bowl.

Add the flour, salt, thyme and pepper, stir to combine.

Add the egg whites and combine.

Spoon mixture into hot oil and fry until golden on both sides (5 minutes)

Serve with a squeeze of lemon and spoonful of yoghurt.
