I made this guy this afternoon. I was fairly pleased with how it turned out, but thought the “pancake” could use with a little more spice. I made the one here without the seasoning inside, I added the seasoning to my sour cream instead. You can use any kind of seasoning really, I just picked Club House Italiano, because that’s what I had in my cupboard.
1 medium potato
1 medium parsnip
1 tbsp flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp seasoning of choice (Italiano, for example, optional)
2 tsp olive oil
1. Shred potato, parsnip, carrot (either on a grater or in a food processor)
2. In medium bowl, mix potato, parsnip, carrot, egg, flour, salt, baking powder and seasoning.
3. In a frying pan (large if you want a big, skinny pancake, small if you want a thicker one — that’s what I used), heat oil until very hot. Spread mixture onto skillet, flatten with spatula until even. Cook over medium until crisp, browned and set (about 8 minutes). Flip (either by using ninja spatula skills or by transferring onto a plate and back again to the pan) and cook for another 8 minutes.
4. Cut into quarters and serve with sour cream garnish. Enjoy!
