Curried zucchini pancakes (recipe here)
Pipes You See, Pipes You Don’t is the project of Peter Erchick, keyboardist from Olivia Tremor Control (and member of the Elephant 6 collective). This dish has nothing to do with his music, except that he just released a record called Lost in the Pancakes, which I think is the greatest album name ever. So here are some pancakes!

Heavily adapted from my mom’s cookbook. Makes 12-15 pancakes.
2 cups shredded zucchini (about one medium zucchini), patted with a paper towel to absorb some of the liquid
2/3 cups chickpea flour
3 tbsp water
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 scallions, chopped
Up to 1 tbsp dill, chopped
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Olive or vegetable/canola oil for frying
Greek yogurt to serve (optional)
• In a medium/large bowl, mix everything except the oil and yogurt.
• Heat oil in a medium pan and fry over medium heat until browned (about 2-3 minutes on each side).
• Stack on paper towels to get rid of some of the oil.

[…] in doubt. I made delicious roasted beets with balsamic vinegar. My husband even threw together some zucchini pancakes. […]
