You won’t find too many meatless recipes on the blog because I kinda can’t live without meat. My lunch or dinner feels incomplete if there isn’t at least some meat on my plate. Yup, I am a carnivore. However, just like with anything in this world, there are exceptions. Such recipes as baked ziti with ricotta cheese, cream cheese stuffed peppers, spinach egg muffins, or other vegetarian dishes posted on the blog (whopping 15 out of 204 in total) are so perfect that I can forgive the lack of pork, beef, or chicken in them.

In fact, these broccoli pancakes resemble potato pancakes. At least to me. They are so good that I even tried feeding them to my 1-year old son who is not too fond of broccoli or other veggies. Not a chance, though, ha ha! This little guy is not so easy to trick. I will have to try harder next time!

Seriously, guys. If a die-hard carnivore recommends these veggie-packed beauties, they HAVE to be good. Oh, I totally forgot to mention that these are also baked instead of fried. A healthy stuff! However, they can also be pan fried if you want to.

Serve theses broccoli pancakes with a dollop of yogurt and some chopped scallions on top. Perfection! I haven’t even planned on starting this year in a healthy way (contrary to other people) but somehow it happens naturally. I guess my body is just asking me for something lighter after a heavy holiday eating. Well, I am not resisting!

Filled with Parmesan and spinach, these Broccoli Pancakes are a healthy alternative to their traditional potato cousins!
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups (150g) chopped broccoli
  • 4 cups (140g) packed spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup (30g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 scallions, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Steam the chopped broccoli for about 4-5 minutes. In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a skillet and saute the spinach for 3 minutes, until wilted. Transfer to a cutting board and chop.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the eggs with the baking soda, flour, panko, and Parmesan cheese. Add the steamed broccoli, spinach, and half of the scallions and mix well.
  4. Form 8-10 pancakes on the baking sheet leaving some space between them. Bake for 10 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for 2 more minutes. Alternatively, fry in a pan until golden.
  5. Sprinkle with the remaining scallions and serve either topped with some yogurt or plain. Enjoy!

    These look gorgeous and I love that you can bake them, I always end up with most of my stuff stuck to the pan when I cook things like this.

    Oh I’m a massive carnivore too. But saying that I do love a really good veg dish. My biggest problem is convincing hubby. As he does love broccoli this may be the perfect dish for my tribe 😉
