Cuisinart original


An alternative to the traditional potato pancake, spiralizing the vegetables gives this version a lacy look.

1 medium parsnip, about 6 ounces

2 green onions, sliced

¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1. Assemble the Cuisinart PrepExpress with the 3.0mm shred/spaghetti cone and the straight feed tube.  Spiralize the carrot and the parsnip.2

2. Stir the green onions, parsley, eggs, salt and pepper into the vegetables and toss all together in a larger bowl.

3. Using a ¼ cup measure, form patties out of the carrot/parsnip mixture. Be sure to squeeze out all excess liquid with hands when forming. Reserve.

4. Put a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the pan is hot and the oil looks like it’s shimmering, add pancakes to the pan and cook in batches so that they are not crowded. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and crispy.

5. Drain on paper towels briefly before serving.
