EwE japanese vegetable pancakes

This week in our Eating with Ellie group, Chaya chose the Japanese Vegetable and Shrimp Pancakes.  Due to my shellfish allergy, I just simply left the shrimp out of these.  I had my doubts about these while they were cooking, but we ended up really enjoying them.  The photo does not do them justice.  The sauce gave them a little kick that they needed.  I think they might have even been better the second night.  I halved the recipe and it made nine pancakes for us!!  They were really easy to mix up.  Napa cabbage, eggs, flour, scallions, carrot, a little soy sauce and ketchup for the sauce.  Just fried up in a little olive oil.  And they are healthy which is an additional reason to try them!!  Makes a really good side dish or I am sure with the shrimp added would be a quick and delicious entrée for a busy weeknite.

You can find the recipe in Ellie's Weeknite Wonders cookbook or online here:

Happy to hear you enjoyed them! I think generally we are not pancake fans here, I make pancakes about twice a year just because I feel maybe a good mom does So a pancake with "stuff" in it wasn't going to be a hail to the chief type of dinner here. They work great in lettuce wraps, however, so that was a hit...and those shrimps were wonderful, I know you can't eat them, so I just figured I would let you know that we loved the shrimp part the best. :-) Yours look so nice all lined up nice and neat!

We enjoyed these too... I think I ended up with more veggies and less pancake, but they were yummy!

It's interesting how different all of our pancakes look. Mine were the duds. Yours look good.
