Whenever you have leftover vegetables (or flat out botch a recipe like I did), the addition of an egg, flour and some herbs can turn a mistake into one of the most delicious and happiest of accidents. Case in point are these Green Veggie Pancakes. They work great as a side dish or even on their own for lunch or a snack. Add any one of a variety of dips or sauces and things get even more fun. They are easy to make, fun to eat and perfect for the whole family....whether you intend to make them or not!


Chopped vegetables 1 Cup (16 tbs) (zucchini, broccoli, and/or cauliflower)
Flour 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Kosher salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Egg 1 Large
Dried basil 1 Teaspoon



In a food processor, pulse the vegetables to chop finely.

Add flour, salt, egg, basil, garlic powder and mix well.

Heat oil in a skillet and place 1 tablespoon on batter.

Cook for 1-2 minutes per side.



Serve with sauce or dip and enjoy!
