Here's an excellent lunch idea to break up the monotony of sandwiches and salads: homemade zucchini latkes with spices and fresh herbs. This recipe is vegan - the eggs have been substituted by a gel made from ground flax seed or chia seeds. Mix the ground seeds with a bit of water and let it sit for the magic to occur. Try these served with a cool and fresh avocado sauce or a creamy, spicy cashew sauce.
