Broccoli and Carrot Pancakes


Hello everyone,

Broccoli and Carrot Pancakes? It may sound a little odd I know, but I’ll tell you everything about it below.

First of all, let me confess something: I love those days in which suddenly I find myself at home, completely lost in my thoughts and thinking about what do to. Actually, I usually have a billion things to do but I just don’t find the willingness to jump straight into my duties. Well, when I find myself in this situation (quite often let’s be honest!), I don’t always attack the fridge in order to motivate myself; instead, I go search for some inspiration and creativity. As you might have realized already, I am very passionate about food and I enjoy spending time in the kitchen trying out new recipes. It relaxes me and I have fun this way.

I do not always have plenty of ingredients in the pantry since these moments are spontaneous – I can’t predict when they’re going to happen. Therefore I have to take advantage of my imagination and use the ingredients I have available in my kitchen. This is why I always try to use the leftovers to create my own recipes and make different things. And this time it was no exception!

I mean, who would even think about making broccoli and carrot pancakes? Sounds a little crazy and weird, doesn’t it? But I have to say my invention turned out to be quite good and I ate those pancakes for breakfast the next day. My mom, who usually likes to eat varied breakfasts as I do, approved my recipe. And we both love eating pancakes in the morning! On the previous day, I made a chia pudding and there was about 1/2 cup left in the fridge. I was wondering what to do with it and it just popped into my mind that I could try making some pancakes with the leftovers.

Let’s check the step by step?

Broccoli and Carrot Pancakes (8/10 small pancakes):

  • 1/2 cup of chia pudding
  • 1/3 cup of flax seeds (blended)
  • 1 small broccoli
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Start by blending the flax seeds using a kitchen robot (in case you buy seeds instead of blended)
  2. Grind the broccoli and the carrot, also using the kitchen robot. I normally use bimby for this kind of thing
  3. Combine the blended flex seeds, the broccoli, the carrot, and the chia pudding all together and stir well
  4. Beat the eggs, folding them gently into the previous mixture, and add the salt
  5. Add the coconut oil
  6. Mix all the ingredients very well and fold the baking powder into the batter
  7.  In a hot frying pan, pour small scoops of the batter (round shape)
  8. Let it cook for 2 min and turn it to the other side
  9. Let it cook for 1 more minute
  10. It’s ready to serve.

Suggestion: I love putting the pancakes in a toaster in the morning, with a slice of cheese in the middle, almost like a pancake sandwich.

I like sharing my recipes and I always get excited about it, but I also get anxious to know if you’re going to like them or not. Hope this recipe will surprise you!

P.S. It’s a good way of eating more veggies and it’s super healthy!
