Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Make Zucchini Batter:
In a medium bowl, stir together zucchini, eggs, oregano, mint and chickpea flour. Season batter with a pinch each of salt and pepper.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, spoon in ½ cup batter, tilting pan to evenly distribute batter, and cook pancake until exterior is browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer pancake to a paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter and extra oil as needed. Transfer pancakes to a baking sheet and bake until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, set a large skillet over high heat. Once hot, add string beans and fry until blistered, about 2 minutes. Off heat, season with parsley, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil and sumac, if using. Season with salt to taste.

In a small bowl, season yogurt with salt and pepper. Serve beans and yogurt on top of or alongside zucchini pancakes, with lemon wedges for seasoning.
