2 medium zucchini
1/2 block tofu 
2 Tbsp. sesame (raw)
1 tsp. onion powder (up to 1 Tbsp. if you are a big time onion lover)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (up to 1 tsp if you really love garlic)
1 tsp. dried basil (up to 1 Tbsp. chopped basil if you use fresh)
1 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
Salt to taste
3/4 cup water
Olive oil

1- Substitute the basil for tarragon
2- Add 1 Tbsp. tahini to strengthen the sesame flavor

Wash your zucchini well and cut in bite-size pieces. In a bowl, mix well all your dry ingredients. Mash the tofu with a fork, add to it the water and the zucchini pieces, mix well. Incorporate the zucchini mixture into the dry ingredients, making sure you have no lumps. Create a smooth and thick batter. "Paint" a skillet with olive oil and drop your small pancakes into it by large spoonfuls. Wait till set before flipping. Cook on both sides till golden brown.
