Zucchini plant and sandwich

I stuffed this sandwich with this delicious zucchini omelette.

You need...
1 cup zucchini grated, drain and squeeze out the water
3 eggs
pepper and salt to taste
1 tbsp fresh herbs optional
1 green chillie without seeds chopped optional
1 to 2 tbsp oil
bread slices
butter to spread on the bread slices

Beat everything together and leave aside. With help from an adult heat the oil and fry the mixture in medium high heat, when it easy to flip cook the other side. The omelette should be moist but not runny. When it is a little cool place it in between two slices of bread that is buttered and serve. Toasting the bread is optional.
Some pictures of the zucchini plant from this Summer. We enjoyed a few, but there was too much rain so not every flower that bloomed produced fruit.
The stem that is holding the flower is the vegetable, it was amazing how they grow. It was easy to remove the fruit with a pair of scissors or shears instead of breaking it off.

Many people stuff these flower and batter fry, which I haven't tried.
