After all the heavy food in my life the past few days I'm ready to lighten it up a little. Plus we have St. Patty's Day this week.
First let me say that I have no idea why this is Portuguese or why it's called a pancake. It really is more like an omelet, except better. Perfect for brunch/lunch or light supper.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound zucchini, chopper
1 small onion chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 stalk celery, chopped
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 chopped tomato or 1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup milk or half and half
salt, pepper, paprika
1/2 cup grated cheese, your choice
Toss vegetables into a heavy frying pan which has a lid. Brown in oil for about 5 minutes. Add seasoinings and tomatoes or sauce. Simmer until barely moist. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour over vegetable mixture. Cover, cook until eggs begin to set. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika and brown under broiler, about 10 minutes. Serve in pie shaped wedges with a good crusty bread.
