Recipe and Tips:
Makes about 15 six inch pancakes
2 Cups Pamela’s GF Pancake Mix**
1 large zucchini
2-3 large carrots, pealed
3 large tomatoes
3/4 TBS Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp dried Oregano or 1 TBS fresh
1 TBS dried basil or 1/4 cup fresh
1 tsp thyme
1/4 cup fresh chives
2 TBS Sunflower Oil
1 1/2 cups Water
3/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese (optional)
Sauce Ingredients (optional):
1 cup Unsweetened coconut milk***
1 cup shredded White Cheddar
4 TBS Butter
4 TBS Pamela’s GF All-Purpose Flour, Artisan blend**
Salt to taste
In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, chives, salt and pepper. Then, whisk in eggs, water, and sunflower oil. In a food processor, grate zucchini and carrots, then add to batter along with shredded cheese. Dice tomatoes, and stir in to complete pancake batter.
For sauce, start by making a roux. To do this, heat butter or over medium high heat in a small saucepan. Add flour gradually, whisking vigorously to form a paste. Reduce heat to low. Gradually pour in coconut milk while continuing to whisk. Once all milk is whisked in, add cheese, salt to taste, and continue to stir until completely melted and mixed in. Then, turn off heat and set aside.
Heat a griddle or large frying pan to medium heat and lightly butter or spray with nonstick spray. Poor about 1/3 cup of batter onto preheated griddle, and flip once. Extra pancakes can be cooled, wrapped in plastic wrap, and frozen for future eating; just reheat in the microwave or toaster oven!
Serve pancakes on a bed or greens, with bacon, or on their own! Simply pour the cheese sauce over the top, and enjoy! 🙂
**I have had the best luck with Pamela’s brand for GF baking, but also found King Arthur’s to be wonderful. Of course, if you do not have Celiac or a gluten-sensitivity, regular all-purpose flour and pancake mix will do 😉
***If you are not lactose-intolerant, feel free to use regular milk. I highly recommend using the SO Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk, otherwise, for the closest milk-tasting alternative. Even though other brands of coconut milk are available unsweetened, many still have off-putting taste for a savory recipe.
