Put zucchinis in a processor and grate finely, place in a bowl when done. Tear up a few mint leaves and mix them in, then toss it all together and squeeze out the mixture to get rid of the excess liquid - probably easiest to squeeze between your CLEAN hands.
Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil into an oven proof fry pan, sprinkle in the zucchinis and saute for a few minutes, stirring often. Beat the eggs in a bowl add truffle oil, goats feta, cayenne and thyme leaves and half Pecorino, stir to mix then pour the mixture over the zucchinis.
Stir and cook for a minute, then scatter over the rest of the grated Pecorino and put on the top shelf of your oven or under the grill until cooked through - fluffy and golden (roughly 5 to 7 minutes).
Serve with a large leafy green salad.
Makes four to six serves.
