I’m on a mission to find new ways to get veggies into the boy. He likes veggies and on a good day will eat pretty much anything. However when he is under the weather or teething he pulls a right face and hands it all right back to me. Which is frustrating. I find as a general rule he isn’t as keen when he is given large chunks of vegetables on the side of a meal. What he really gets on well with is having small pieces of vegetables mixed in something. All well and good, but it can leave me scratching my head a lunchtimes.
Lunch in our house is often a quick, thrown together, snack type meal – typically with vegetables on the side. So today I tried out adding grated courgette to my pancake recipe. OH MY DAYS. This was good. Amazingness in a pancake. Miss K doesn’t like courgette but will tolerate it if I grate it. She ate these up, asked for more and gave me a pass mark.
The boy looked at them and snarfed them up. Then asked for his train book “Choo Choo” Top marks I think.
“Mummy you can make these again” Miss K.
- 130g rice flour (can use plain flour too)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 120ml milk
- 1 grated courgette
- Mix the flour and baking powder together.
- Now add the egg and milk, beat together.
- Grate the courgette into the mix and stir in.
- Heat a pan or griddle plate until it is steaming hot.
- Wipe a small amount of oil on a piece of kitchen roll around the pan.
- Pour a ladle of pancake batter in and cook for a few minutes on each side.
- Super tasty when eaten warm with a little cheese on top!
- Will freeze well.
