Cheesy Zucchini Pea & Potato Pancakes - How to Make Fussy Little Eaters to Eat Veggies...

I grate vegetables into my pasta sauces, so children will eat some veggies they normally don't eat.  Veggies haven't been their favourite food, but they have been good with some of them, broccoli, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, carrots, some times, and they normally love peas.

They are not too keen on zucchini, so it's time to hide it, again.  I have got some left over mashed potato so I put in as well.  It's simple, tasty and ready in half an hour.

Cheesy Zucchini Pea and Potato Pancakes:

Make 6-8 depending on sizes
2 eggs
1 cup milk
pinch of salt
white pepper
1/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup mashed potato
30 ml extra virgin olive oil
1 cup finely grated zucchini
1/2 cup peas (frozen or fresh)
1/2 cup of shredded cheese (I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar)

Extra vegetable oil to fry.

Beat eggs with salt, add olive oil and milk.
Sift in flour, mix well till smooth, add white pepper.
Fold in the veggies, zucchini, potato and peas, and the cheese.
And the pancake batter is ready.

Add a bit of salad and my 4 year old loves tomato sauce with her frankfurt....  We have to cut it up for her, she's still not confident with her knife...
