2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, spoon in ½ cup batter, tilting pan to evenly distribute batter, and cook pancake until exterior is browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer pancake to a paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter and extra oil as needed. Transfer pancakes to a baking sheet and bake until heated through, about 5 minutes.
3. Over high heat use a large skillet to add string beans and fry until blistered, about 2 minutes. Off heat, season with parsley, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil and sumac, if using. Season with salt to taste.
4. Season yogurt with salt and pepper in a small bowl. Serve beans and yogurt alongside zucchini pancakes, with lemon wedges for seasoning.
