Ingredients

  • 4 Rashers of bacon
  • Some slices of Halloumi
  • 3 large courgettes
  • 1/4 (30g) grated Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup LSC ( linseed, sunflower, chia)
  • 1/3 cup parsley leaves
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper to taste

  1. Cook 4 rashers of bacon and some slices of halloumi in a pan.  Once cooked, leave to one side.
  2. Grate courgettes into a bowl and season with salt.
  3. Mix together well, then drain off the excess fluid by draining through a sieve. Turn out the grated courgette onto a paper towel to soak up the moisture.

  5. Place into a hot, well-oiled pan evenly dispersed.  Flip over and cook until brown on both sides.
