Veggie Pancakes

My cousin, Raleigh, emailed me the other day and asked me to come up with a veggie pancake recipe. Sounded like a great idea to me, but would kids eat a vegetable pancake? Only one way to find out. "Kenya!" I decided to make a basic pancake batter, minus the sugar, add julienned vegetables and then sauté them until golden. Wow! Kenya loved them. Even I was shocked at how easy and delicious these were to prepare.

They're perfect to serve for brunch, put in a lunch box or even to have as a side dish at dinner. Kenya and I whipped out a bottle of Krazy Ketchup and dipped away eating up the entire batch in one sitting!
