Last updated: Nov 8, 2018 — Published: Nov 8, 2018 — By: Anita — 14 commentsZucchini pancakes are really easy to make. Treat it as breakfast, or one of the many side dishes for lunch/dinner, or snack.
Am I the only person who loves savory pancakes more than sweet ones? When I have plenty of vegetables and need to use them up quickly, invariably they become pancakes! This time I use my favorite squash, zucchini, to make this easy and delicious zucchini pancakes. Of course it doesn’t have to be zucchini, it can be carrots, bell peppers, even lightly blanched broccoli. And you can add some meat/seafood too if you want to make fancy pancakes.
Since this is a Chinese dish, we serve this more as one of the many dishes to eat with steamed rice for lunch or dinner. But I sometimes make this kind of savory pancakes for breakfast. So filling, and so delicious. If I must choose between savory pancake or sweet pancake for breakfast, I definitely pick the savory one without batting an eye. :D
I was making some desserts that use only egg yolks and ended up with extra egg whites. You can make this with only egg whites, but I prefer to have some whole eggs mixed in with the egg whites. I think the yolks lend a more savory and umami feel, and I can definitely tell when a pancake doesn’t contain any yolk. Just to make things easier, make sure you have 1 cup of eggs, it doesn’t matter if it is whole eggs, or just egg whites.
