Minoo made a Vegetable Pancake in her cooking class at the Caring Place. If you have problems getting your kids to eat vegetables, like mine, the Vegetable Pancake is a good way to get them to eat it. This pancake is crispy which somehow camouflages the vegetables in it.
The tuna topping gives the Vegetable Pancake an extra edge. I think it’s a brilliant idea Minoo had of the tuna topping. I can imagine how rather ho-hum this would be without this extra topping.
- 2 potatoes peeled
- 1 onion peeled
- 2 carrots peeled
- 1 cup Biscuit or pancake flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dry or fresh herbs like rosemary, thymes, sage (optional)
- oil for frying
- Mix a can of fish (salmon/tuna/sardines) with some mayonnaise and green onions (optional)
- Crush a can of beans (chickpea/navy beans/kidney beans) and add 1 tablespoon of oil and 1-2 teaspoons of chopped garlic
The Vegetable Pancake is best served hot with the topping. You may substitute other vegetables like zuchinni, green beans or green onions (thinly sliced). Minoo, thank you for a great recipe to get kids to eat vegetables.

First time to your blog and I noticed the veggie pancakes came from “Minoo”? Minoo is a Persian name. Is she Persian? Does she have some Persian recipes to share?
I love Persian food and am always looking for new Persian recipes 🙂
Hi PrivatePigg, I do not know if Minoo is a Persian but she did make another Persian dish before. The dish is Lubria Polo. You can find the recipe at http://chowtimes.com/2006/04/lubria_polo_persian_rice.html
Pancakes look scrumptious, thanks for the recipe!
What a great dish. It seems similar to Japanese okonomiyaki or Korean jun as well. You’re right. The tuna on top is a nice touch.
