My 6th grader, who claims she doesn’t like zucchini, scarfed down these zucchini and sweet potato pancakes! I think topping them with sour cream and applesauce (both things she loves) helped. :) And, with the assistance of my food processor, these were super easy to make. Plus, I felt good about meeting our vegetable “quota” for the day. I can’t tell you how many times I think to myself, “I should’ve made/served more veggies!” Anyone else ever feel the same way? If your kids do not love veggies, try this Healthy Zucchini Bread! Or, make these Easy Sweet Potato Muffins.
These also hold up well left over and can even be added to the lunchbox. I threw them in along with a serving of applesauce, and it went over great. For dinner, we had them alongside a big bowl of hearty soup. Again, one of my attempts to not only get in enough veggies but also reduce our consumption of meat (with a couple of meat-free dinners each week)! We aren’t vegetarians, but studies show if you cut back to less than one serving of meat per day you can consider yourself a “flexitarian” with a risk of heart disease and cancer that is equally as low as a vegetarian. Sounds good to me! More on that here.
