Root Vegetable Pancakes 🥕

Happy Monday, my friends!

Last week @plantstoplanks announced that it’s root vegetable time, and it truly is. Since there's never too many root veggies recipes, let's share some more this week!

Remember the tzatziki recipe I shared with you last week? Well, now you got something delicious to have with it! (@puravidaville also suggested to use tzatziki as a spread for a veggies sandwich, and I’m sure that’s delicious as well!) When you read through this post, you may think “requires so much effort, I’m not up for that”, but hear me out. If you don’t want to peel, wash and grate your vegetables, which btw will give you an excellent forearm workout, just go with frozen veggies, no judgement here!


Root vegetable pancakes


approx. 700 grams root vegetables of preference (I used carrots, rutabaga [is that the word you use for it?] and potato)
1 onion
1 little chili (optional)
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemarine
2 tsp salt
fresh dill
3 tbsp ground chia/flax seed + 8 tbsp water
½ cup (~1.2 dl) all-purpose flour
½ cup (~1.2 dl) water or plant milk of choice
vegetable oil for frying



Peel and grate your vegetables (if you use frozen mix, skip). Place the grated vegetables into a large bowl. Chop and sautée the onion for a few minutes. Simultaneously, chop the chili.


Place the onion and the chili into the large bowl with the vegetables. Prepare you chia/flax seed “eggs” (mix the water and ground seeds) and let it sit for a few minutes. Meanwhile, take a small bowl and mix the flour, seasonings and water/plant milk. Add in the “egg”, and mix. Pour the mixture into the large bowl where you have all the veggies. Mix well, you may want to use your hand for this.


Heat up a frying pan to medium or medium-high, and fry the pancakes with a little bit of oil. If you have a pancake pan, perfect, use it. If not, use a measurement cup (¼ cup or a large protein scoop is perfect) to scoop the batter onto the pan. Flatten the pancakes a bit using a spatula. Let them cook for approx. 5 minutes each side. Serve with tzatziki!

Duuuuudddee… this way better than pairing tzatziki with a veggie sandwich. You killed it again @jasmink! Can I come over and have lunch at you house ? Amazing job my friend! These pancakes are definitely on my todo list now :).

Thank you so much @puravidaville, you're too kind! You're always welcomed here to share a meal with me! :)

Mmmm. I have no problems with vegetables, but different ways to prepare them can't hurt, and this one looks like a winner.

Sometimes it's good to change things a little!
Thank you! :)

howdy there jasmink! oh these look wonderful, I've never heard of such and thing but I think these are amazing!

There's a first time for everything, these vegetable pancakes tasted really nice. Thanks for stopping by and commenting @janton!

howdy again jasmink! You are very welcome and thank you for doing a great post!

Thank you @marthastardust, I'm glad you like this! 😊

Uhhmmm. Yummy 😄 I like this too @jasmink 😉 need to find out, what's rutabaga 😊

Thanks @cicisaja! 😊 Rutabaga is that big round yellow and green vegetable in the second picture, next to the carrots, it's really common in Finland, and I think in Sweden and Norway too. Actually, the one I used for this recipe was the smallest one I could found from the grocery store, often they're enormous! 😄

Yessss! You totally made those root veggies shine in this one! What a great way to make use of the tzatziki, too. Yum, yum, yum. I have a feeling it's going to be a fantastic Monday!

Thank you so much! I also have a feeling this is a great Fruit's and Veggies Monday here on Steemit! :)

Wow it looks incredible and amazingly ceative. Thanks for the reminder also <3

Thank you so much @paradigmprospect! 😊

Great recipe, I should try making vegetable pancakes sometime! :D

You definitely should, vegetable pancakes are a great way to get enough of those delicious veggies in!
Thanks @mermaid! 😊

These look incredibly tasty. I've added them to my list of recipes to try.

I'm in the process of going vegan (committed & planning) and am searching for recipes which I think I'll like - which isn't easy when you've not likes veggies too much your whole life!

I can see already that spices are the way to go, so it's definitely with chilli for me :)

I'm so happy to hear you're taking this step in your life! There are so many great recipes to try out there, I'm glad you also liked this one! I could also be a good idea to try to find some really simple recipes, so that when you're busy, you can just throw the dish together in no time. If you wish to find nice recipes from Steemit, try searching #fruitsandveggiesmonday. Every week, a bunch of people are creating amazing dishes and giving inspiration to vegan cooking and baking!

Good luck with the process, and thank you for such a lovely comment, @minimalish! :)

Yeah, I just found the #fruitandveggiesmonday tag. Thanks for the encouragement :)

Perhaps you'll even join us one day! 😊

This looks incredible and yummy. Great healthy improvement over potato pancakes.

Thanks! Potato pancakes taste nice as well, but it's good to try new things every now and then. It also true that these give a greater variety of micronutrients. :)

That would be the right meal for me now, a tasty combination @jasmink!

Words can get us into trouble! Here in South Africa we call crepes pancakes. And these we call flapjacks. So when I saw you were making pancakes with root vegetables I was very confused! But they look delicious. Thanks for the inspiration @jasmink!

I have never heard anyone calling pancakes flapjacks, but I like it. I think I should start using that word too, haha! But root vegetables in crepes (your pancakes), that's an interesting idea... To make the word game even more complex, in Finnish we have a word that could be translated as "pancake", and it's a bit like pancakes or crepes but made in the oven. Here is link to recipe so you can see what pancake looks like.
Thanks you @buckaroo! :)

Imagine how you would confuse people @jasmink! Thank you for the recipe. Going to have a peek

Woohoo..I am going to make these pancakes today! All my favorite ingredients in one! Thanks for sharing!

My pleasure, I'm so glad you like this recipe! Enjoy your veggie pancakes! 😋

😍🤤 sounds delicious 😋

And tastes too! Thanks for stopping by @melaschimdt! 😊

Fantastic recipe Jasmin. I am drooling and I am not even hungry, lol. Excellent photography too. Well done my Dear 🍒 🍌🍑🌿🍍🍓🍇
