White Pumpkin Pancakes
These were delicious. Very similar to potatoes in taste, but more fragile than potato pancakes would have been, due to the higher water content of the pumpkin. Next time, I'll try to squeese some of the water out by putting the pumpkin in a colander and sticking a weighted plate on top for a little while. Many "ersatz" potato recipes that use cauliflower call for this step.
Also for next time: chopped onions...for more of a hashbrowns effect.
I ate these with ketchup for supper last night, my daughter had them with honey-mustard sauce, and my husband and another daughter ate them with maple syrup. The other kids wouldn't try them.
Very yummy, and a definite "repeater" in some form or other.
Oh, I forgot to add: this was about 1/3 of the pumpkin flesh, four eggs, processed in the food processor, cooked in an oiled pan.
And notice, please, how CLEAN my stove top is! I got the black gunk off with several of those magic eraser sponges and lots of elbow grease and some knife scraping. Just thought I'd mention it. I'd let my stove top go to pot and it was quite a job, rescuing it. I suppose this shows that my health and energy is improving.
