As a kid, my mother always made potato pancakes, served with sour cream.  I wanted to make a version of these for our 7.5 month old.  Most of the ingredients came from our garden, which made them even more exciting!!  Konrad absolutely LOVED them and ate an entire pancake in one sitting. Unfortunately, I was making it up as I went, so the ingredient amounts are guesses, but I will definitely make these again!!

  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 3 grated carrots
  • 1 grated onion
  • 1 grated yam (medium size)
  • 3 grated potatoes (medium size)
  • 1 egg
  • enough flour to soak up some of the liquid (about 1 cup)
  • Salt/Pepper/Cajun seasoning (optional)

Put safflower or other cooking  oil in a cast iron pan or skillet on medium-high heat.  Then roll the mix into balls and roll in flour.  Place the balls in the skillet and gently smash flat with fingers.  Let cook briefly on one side then flip, flatten with spatula to about 1/4 inch thick.  Let cook until browned on one side, flip and brown.  Serve with ketchup or sour cream.

I made a small batch without any seasonings for the kiddo, then added a healthy dose of cajun seasoning for Dave and I.  Yummers!!
