What is in the veggie pancake recipe?
Veggie pancakes are shredded potato mixed with yummy summer squash and carrots. I like them as a dinner time side dish, but they also make a great addition to the breakfast table – adding a little extra nutrition to the beginning of your day.
These vegetable pancakes remind me of hash browns because they include shredded potato. Yet they are healthier because they are pancakes made with both vegetables and potato. They are sometimes called vegetable fritters and are similar to zucchini fritters.
If you are looking to make these toddler veggie pancakes, then I suggest serving them with ketchup or sour cream. My toddler loves to dip everything in ketchup!
Healthy veggie pancakes
I love how colorful potato vegetable pancakes are! If you are trying to eat the rainbow every day, this will definitely help you achieve your goal! And no, I’m not referring to sugar cereal. 🤪
I have found that offering more vegetable variety – and offering it at most or all meals – helps my family to eat healthier and consume more vegetables overall.
How to make vegetable pancakes?
To make this recipe for vegetable fritters, start with 3 medium potatoes. I found this colorful potato trio (pictured above) at Trader Joes. It is a mix of red potatoes, purple potatoes, and Yukon gold potatoes. The purple potatoes are even purple on the inside – so fun. Just fry them up in a hot pan until golden brown.
When making this veggie pancake recipe, keep in mind that some vegetables have a higher water content (like squash and zucchini) and you will want to squeeze the excess water out of them when scooping them up and before placing them in your frying pan.
What to serve with vegetable fritters?
Veggie fritters taste great served with chicken or fish. We recommend pairing them with tilapia fish cakes, instant pot salmon, Foil Packet Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa or Mini Chicken Pot Pies. If serving them as a healthier breakfast side dish, then I recommend paring them with fried eggs, Make Ahead Scrambled Eggs, or Eggs in a Basket. If you want to serve them with beef, try Instant Pot Italian Beef.
