Veggie Pancakes

From member Curran:

If you’re looking for any recipe ideas for the newsletter, here’s an easy one that kids will surely enjoy.  If you don’t need recipes, no worries, I won’t be offended! 🙂 

Recipes always welcome, especially good ones 😉 G
I was thinking yesterday of what to do with some of the tiny eggplant we received this week.  I decided to shred them and make potato pancakes using them.   All I did was:
-Preheat oven to 250 and spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray
-Wash veggies and don’t worry about peeling.
-Box grate 1 medium potato (any color), 1 medium carrot, 1-2 small eggplant.  Squeeze excess moisture from the potatoes.
-Put the grated veggies in a bowl and mix with 1/2block crumbled firm tofu (raw but pressed to remove moisture) or 1/2block crumbled tempeh, 2 clove crushed/minced garlic and 1/2 tsp salt and some pepper
-Once you’re ready to cook, mix in about 1/3 cup of beaten egg whites (or whole eggs if you’d rather)
-Scoop out about 1/4c mixture (don’t be afraid to get some of the liquid – it helps bind) and drop onto skillet on medium/high sprayed with cooking spray.  Use 1/4c measure to flatten out.  Cook a few minutes (3-4) and then flip.
-Once cooked, place on cookie sheet in oven to keep warm (or eat at room temp, because that would still be good). 
This made about 14 pancakes.  They’re really light, so I would definitely double (or more) if this is going to be for “grownups” or as a main dish.
I also made a little yogurt sauce – .5c plain yogurt, 1/4 lemon, juiced, little S&P, and ~1tsp dill.

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
