Carrot and Onion Pancakes

Free from:



Makes 6 pancakes. Preparation time 5 minutes. Cooking time 10 minutes


  • 120g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp egg replacer (or 2 tsp gram flour mixed with 4 tsp water)
  • 400ml soya milk
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 onion, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil for frying


  1. Mix the flour, egg replacer and soya milk to make a smooth batter. Place the carrot and onion onto a clean tea towel. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can, then add to the batter mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan. Spoon in half a ladle of mixture and carefully spread it over the pan. Gently fry for five minutes on both sides, until golden.

Cook’s tip: if you prefer a smoother pancake put the batter mixture through a blender before step 2.

Serving suggestions: with mushrooms and baked beans or get creative and make a face pattern with cress hair, carrot sticks for the mouth and fried aubergine for the eyes and nose.
