A great way to try turnips. Full of vegetables and packed with flavor, turnip pancakes will satisfy audiences of all ages.

Ingredients

Pancakes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 cups grated turnip
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for cooking)
Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, pepper, egg, garlic, soy sauce, and water in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Stir in the turnip, carrot and green onion
  4. Heat half of oil in a large skillet over medium heat (350 degrees F in an electric skillet). Pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake into skillet. Flatten with a fork into a 3-inch circle.
  5. Cook until edges look dry and bottom is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn once. Cook until bottom is golden and crispy. Repeat with remaining batter, adding remaining oil as needed. Pancakes will be moist in the center.
  6. Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with warm pancakes.

Notes

No rice vinegar? Try apple cider vinegar instead.
