A simple and tasty way to get those veggies in on a holiday. Can substitute any of the children’s favorites, such as broccoli, squash, etc.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 12
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup red pepper, minced
- 1 cup yellow pepper, minced
- 1 1/2 cups carrots, grated
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, liquid removed

- 1 large onion, chopped finely
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- Black pepper to taste
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- Nonstick cooking spray
In a medium skillet, heat olive oil on low heat. Sauté the peppers until very tender, about 15 minutes.
Place all the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
Add the peppers to the bowl, and mix well. Batter should be thick.
Place in refrigerator for several hours, or even overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring batter to room temperature before cooking.
When ready, form patties using about 1/4 cup of vegetable mixture for each patty.
Spray nonstick cooking spray on large baking sheets. Place patties on baking sheets and spray top of patties with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, turn the patties, and bake for another 5 to 7 minutes.
Looking Like a Pancake
