Recipe: Vegetable Pancakes

Pin It

This is another one of those recipes where you can throw in whatever veggies you have on hand (and need to eat!). That is my favorite kind of recipe because I love it when you can still make a dish even if you don’t have all the “exact” ingredients. Plus if you don’t like a certain vegetable then leave it out…you can use whatever you and your family like!

Vegetable Pancakes from 100 Days of Real Food

And I must share that my picky daughter, who normally doesn’t even eat very many vegetables, asked for thirds of the pictured vegetable pancakes. I used a mix of sweet potatoes, carrots and zucchini. I think the sweet potatoes helped to “sweeten it up,” and she absolutely loves sour cream so this side item ended up being a very big hit!

Vegetable Pancakes
Serves: 2-3
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups shredded veggies (I like to use a mix including things like white potatoes, sweet potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and/or carrots…whatever you have on hand)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • Optional garnish: sour cream and/or applesauce
Instructions
  1. Combine the shredded veggies with the eggs, flour, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Heat a thin layer of olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. It is important that the heat is the right temperature because you want the pancakes to cook all the way through the middle by the time they are brown on the outside.
  3. Once the oil has heated up add pancake size dollops of the veggie mixture into the pan. Cook for several minutes until the bottom starts to brown. Then flip and repeat.
  4. Transfer cooked pancakes to a plate lined with paper towels.
    Serve warm with sour cream and/or applesauce.

    We just made these for dinner tonight. I used a sweet potato, 2 carrots, and 1 yellow squash. I mixed it about 45 minutes before cooking. It set on the counter and what moisture was there from the squash I poured out. They turned out great. We tried several different combinations of toppings…..maple syrup, cayenne hot sauce, ketchup, and salt. My favorite was hot sauce and ketchup together although my husband really liked the maple syrup. I think the family liked them and we will make them again. I love that the combinations can be different each time.

    Thank you for a delicious and easy way to use up veggies! We have an overload of veggies in our garden and have used different mixtures of; kohlrabi, yellow squash, zucchini, kale, carrots, green tomatoes (I will peel the skin next time), and chopped banana peppers. I always double the recipe for our family; 2 adults, 2 young kids, and have just the right amount. For a little extra taste I’ve added things like garlic and herb blend, cumin, Italian herb blend, chili powder (my 2 yr old did not like the spice). We use plan yogurt for our dip. Glad to have this recipe in my weekly line up!!!
    Has anyone tried it with shredded eggplant?
