This technique is a delicious way to enjoy root vegetables as we transition into fall. Plus, they're fun to make! This version uses beets and carrots for a colorful dish. Serve with any meal of the day!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 small carrots
  • 3 small potatoes
  • 3 small beets
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper each
  • your preferred cooking oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Grate carrots, potatoes, and beets into large bowl
  2. Squeeze out excess moisture into separate bowl or over kitchen sink with strainer, hand towel, or cheese cloth. Thoroughly squeezing out the moisture is what will help make your finished pancakes crispy and chewy
  3. Crack eggs into bowl and mix
  4. Add flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder into mixture and incorporate with hands until you can start to form patties. Add more flour in small amounts if mixture is still too wet
  5. Heat pan over medium-high heat and coat generously with olive oil
  6. Form patties with mixture and place into hot pan
  7. Flip when crisp and browned
  8. These are best served hot! 

 

NOTES AND TIPS

  • Serve at breakfast for brunch with scrambled eggs
  • Serve for lunch or dinner with a few different dipping sauces, like yogurt, applesauce, or hummus

Feel free to substitute flour with a gluten free variety - we used rice flour

Coat pan with more oil after every batch of hash pancakes to ensure each one gets crispy
