Vegetarian Cheese Pancake 蔬菜乳酪煎饼(中英食谱教程)

My kids never have any problem with eating vegetables since young. In fact, they love all sorts of vegetables in any form be it stir-fried, poached, steamed or salad. I recalled when my boy was a year old and had just started taking solid food, whenever he saw green vegetable in our food, he would say,"Green please, green please!" We would then pick out the greens and put into his mouth and he would be chewing away happily, rather unusual isn't it? I am more than happy that they love to eat vegetables and they always get a generous portion during meal time.  If your kids do not like vegetables then you can get them to eat their greens by 'hiding' it in the food just like this simple vegetarian cheese pancake which I had prepared for our breakfast last weekend. You can prepare the batter the night before, seal it with cling wrap and refrigerate it. The next morning mix the batter with the shredded vegetables and cheese before pan-frying it. Your healthy breakfast will be ready in less than 30 minutes! Or you can have this healthy snack anytime you fancy...

1/2 potato
1/4 carrot

1/4茶匙 盐
少许 白胡椒粉

(二) 蔬菜部份*
1/2 马铃薯
1/4 红萝卜
3片 高丽菜
一些青葱 (家里没有,所以没放,不过放了肯定更好吃)

Directions 步驟:
1. Shred the potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Mix the wholemeal flour and plain flour together in a mixing bowl.
1。马铃薯和红萝卜刨成细丝, 高丽菜切成丝。中筋面粉+全麦面粉放入盆中混合均匀。

2. Add the eggs and milk in, whisk the batter well till no flour is seen. Season with salt and white pepper, then seal with cling wrap for 20 minutes. (Batter can be prepared the night before, store in fridge after sealing with cling wrap.)
2。将鸡蛋及牛奶加入, 用打蛋器搅拌均匀成为无粉粒状态的面糊。将盐及适量白胡椒粉加入调味, 然后封上保鲜膜放置20分钟。(可以前一天晚上先準備好, 封上保鮮膜密封放冰箱)

3. Add in the shredded vegetables and cheddar cheese and mixed well.

4. Add some oil into the frying pan, pour half the batter into it, spread out evenly. Using low heat cook till both sides are golden.

 The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。

Hi Cheryl, may I know what brand of frying pan you are using?

Abi said...

Hi Cheryl,
May I ask this batter can keep in fridge for how many days? And after cook can keep how many day inside frigde?

Baking Taitai said...

Hi Abi, I have not tried keeping the batter or cooked pancake in the fridge as it is always prepared when needed and consumed immediately for freshness. I suppose 1-2 days should be fine but should there be a foul smell, please discard immediately.
