If you are looking for a new way of eating fresh vegetables, try these flavorful pancakes. You’ll think they’re complicated or that they’d take a lot of work to make, but in reality the only thing that will take you some time is grating the vegetables, which is easy work for most people that are use to cook on a regular basis. Besides that, it’s just a matter of mixing and preparing the pancakes the way you usually make them. You’ll surprise your family with a delicious alternative while helping them eat more vegetables in their meals. The crunchy sensation is unequalled. You can have it for breakfast or during la merienda.

  • 1/4 cup green zucchini
  • 1/4 cup carrots
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 shallot
  • 1/4 cup yellow pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh asparagus
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup multipurpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil


  • 1
    Grate the zucchini and carrot, cut the spring onions, shallot, pepper and asparagus, put aside.
  • 2
    In a medium bowl, beat the egg.
  • 3
    Pour in the flour with the salt, pepper and baking powder.

    Incorporate the milk little by little, and mix until you get the desired consistency.

    Add the grated vegetables you had on the side.
  • 6
    Stir until you get a homogeneous mix.
  • 7
    Heat a saucepan at medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Pour the mix using a large spoon. I used the 1/4 measuring cup to make sure all of the pancakes were the same size.

  • 9
    Serve with a yogurt sauce (8 ounces of yogurt without flavor and 2 tablespoons of agave syrup).
