A Light One Before the Food Coma: Veggie Pancakes Recipe

"To lengthen your life, shorten your meals."  Proverb

The holiday season is coming and with it, all the overeating of the get togethers, cookie exchanges and holiday meals.  Yesterday I decided to make some veggie pancakes to lighten up a little before the food-coma of the holidays

This veggie pancake recipe is perfect for those days when you want to use up leftover veggies that have remained in your fridge at the end of the week.  An alternative to making soup with whatever you find in your fridge.  And a great vegetarian alternative to serve with a side of lentils.

Separate your egg whites and yolks,
 and beat the egg whites until they are fluffy and full of air.
  Add the yolks one by one and incorporate to the whites. 
 In a frying pan with a little bit of oil,
 sauté your onions and add your cooked veggies,
 season to taste.  
I used fresh zucchini, added a cup of frozen veggie mix and ended with swiss chard.
  All the veggies will get softer after 5 minutes and the greens (spinach or any fresh greens) will whittle. 

Sprinkle the flour and baking powder to your beaten eggs.
Add your cooked veggies to the mixture and incorporate them gently.
Cook on a griddle like if you were making pancakes,
 make small sizes for parties or regular sizes to eat with a meal.  

If you make them, let me know how they came out.  Do you have a good vegetarian recipe to share with me?
