Vegetable Pancakes

Saturday, May 1, 2010
Kids are picky, right? Well here is a great way to get them to eat them all inside these delicious pancakes.

These are savory garlic-flavored pancakes with zucchini and shredded carrots, but you can change them to whatever you shred or grate vegetable-wise.

Just substitute your favorite vegetables and as long as it's in small bites, they're hidden in these perfect round pancakes.

These are delicious plain, served with any dipping sauce or condiments of choice.

You could even add sweetness to these savory pancakes using some pineapple with zucchini instead of carrots for a different style flavor.

If you love appetizers these are also a great starter or side dish or you can try our Superbowl Recipe Ideas for snacking on.

Easy Fresh and Healthy Side Dish

These mixed vegetable pancakes whip up in no time and are easy to make, so don't shy away from them made from scratch.

I have to confess that in a hurry, I have doctored up the complete pancake mix on occasion and they came out pretty darn good! Shush don't tell anyone I cheated.

Serve them with a side of fresh warmed Marinara Sauce or Any of my Dipping Sauce Recipes. Italian Salsa or even a Low-Fat Greek Yogurt is another option but they taste fabulous just the way they are.

My favorite is shredded artichoke hearts, chopped spinach, and a little orange bell pepper, the combinations are endless!
