Vegetable Pancakes

Vegetable Pancakes

Introduction

I make these with Swiss Chard (my go-to green), but you can substitute spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, or any other green leafy vegetable you like.

Ingredients

    3 cups Swiss chard, chopped and steamed in about 1/2 c water (dice the stems, and reserve the cooking water, which is full of nutrients)
    2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    1/4 c chopped onion
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    1 1/2 to 2 cups plain lowfat yogurt
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 egg whites
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon olive oil (for pan)

Directions

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then add the yogurt, eggs and olive oil, mixing well. Fold in Swiss chard and the cooking water, plus the garlic and onion.

Batter will be scoopable but not pourable.
Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat. Use a small amount of the reserved tablespoon of olive oil, adding more if necessary later on.

Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle or into skillet . As it cooks, spread out the batter into rounds, flipping after a minute or so. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute.

Serve salmon (separate recipe and calorie counts http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=398413) alongside 2-3 pancakes, drizzling with the maple "syrup."
Breakfast for dinner, for grownups.
