Root Vegetable Pancakes

Submitted by : Mckenna Barlow

I love pancakes but sometimes the sweet ones make me over eat!  So,
I have made up this savory version using root vegetables instead.  My
husband really liked them and said they were excellent as leftovers too


1/2 celery root peeled, grated
4 parsnips peeled, grated
1/4 purple onion totally minced to a pulp
1 1/2 cups almond meal (poured a bunch of almonds in my vita-mix and let
‘er rip- much cheaper than buying it but the cheapest place is Trader Joes)
4 eggs
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp ground coriander (see comment above)
1/4 cup hot horseradish
couple squirts of hot sauce and sea salt to taste

Mix everything together
Medium Heat use coconut oil and make pancakes like normal (4inch diameter
1/2 inch thick)
Cook for about 5 minutes each side

  1. Wow I think my grandmother used to make something like this. Damn, I wish I had her recipes! Sorry to say that she passed away many many years ago and none of the family has been able to find her collection of recipes…and they were so good. Well, I’ll give this a try and see how it comes out. I’m very excited to see if it comes out similar!

  2. I like that you use coconut oil for this recipe. It’s funny how much a change in oil affects a dish. There are certain foods that I only make with olive oil or coconut oil or vegetable oil and it grosses me out sometimes even to use another type of oil when I’m out of what I usually use! This sounds really delicious. Can’t wait to try it!

  3. It would’ve been nice to see a picture of this, but somehow I’m left with a vision (a mouth-watering vision at that!) of what this will look like in the end. I just love root veggies. Gotta watch out for that gas though the next day LOL!
