Vegetable Pancakes

I decided to try and clean out the fridge. I had a lot of vegetables to use up and I was in the mood for a new way to eat them. I had this recipe in my googlereader for awhile now and thought I would give it a try.

I changed the veggies up a bit but got a bit impatient waiting for the cucumber to "dry" and I think that affected the way that these cooked. I had to bake them in the oven for 20 minutes to get them to be cooked all the way through. I should have known when I could see the liquid collecting at the bottom of the glass bowl.

I really enjoyed them though. They are even really good cold the next day! Next time I think I may even add some corn to them.

Pepper added by Joey - The response to "hey you want to try one of these veggie pancakes" was "ewwwww"

2 cups grated carrots
2 cups grated cucumber
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 Egg
Salt and Pepper
1 cup grated cabbage
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Vegetable oil

1. Take grated cucumber and squeeze out liquid with hands. Put between 2 paper towels and press down. Sprinkle with a dash of salt and allow to sit on a dry piece of paper towel for 15 minutes. Blot again to remove any remaining liquid.
2. Combine carrots, cabbage, cucumber and green onion in a bowl.
3. Add egg, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Mix to combine.
4. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and spoon 1/4 cup of the shredded vegetable mixture to the pan.
5. Press down with the back of a spoon until round and flat.
6. Allow to cook until brown on one side and then flip and cook the other side.

Those look awesome, and I bet they would be really good with corn! I think my husband would have the same reaction if I asked him if he wanted vegetable pancakes.
