Veggie Pancakes


Prep Time

15 minutes

Prep Notes

If you have a Cuisinart, this dish goes together very quickly.  It makes a lovely sidedish or even a light supper some evening when you want to go to be feeling skinny! 

Cooking Time

20 minutes

Yields

4 servings

Ingredients

2 medium zucchini (about 6" long)
1 large carrot
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large egg and 1 egg white, lightly beaten
4 T. whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp or less of garlic salt or other savory seasoning (no msg)
2 T. olive oil

Directions

Use the Cuisinart to julienne the zucchini and the carrot into a medium bowl. If you don't have a Cuisinart, just coarsely grate the zucchini and carrot.  Add the egg, onion, flour and seasoning.  
In a preheated 9" fry pan (a cast iron works well) add 1T. olive oil and heat.  Use a pastry brush to spread the olive oil evenly around the pan.  Add the vegetable mixture in 1/3-cup scoops and flatten slightly with the back of the measuring cup.  Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown over medium high heat.  Repeat by adding the remaining 1 T. olive oil and the remaining batter.  
Serve immediately with a dollop of Greek yogurt and fresh-snipped chives, and fresh salsa, if desired.  Enjoy!

Notes

This is a delicious way to deal with all the zucchini that comes into your kitchen mid to late summer.
