Zucchini Carrot Scallion Pancake Recipe

Zucchini Carrot Scallion Pancake Recipe by Kristin Omdahl

Scallion pancake is one of my favorite carryout dishes. This recipe is a healthier version – chock full of veggies, without oil, white flour or egg. This is easy and cheap to make and can be served as a savory breakfast, savory snack, a side dish or a main entree paired with sushi rice, and homemade spicy sauce.. Leftovers are awesome the next day, too.

You could easily change up this recipe for variety by changing the spices and fresh herbs.Cilantro and fresh lime zest would be yummy. And so would fresh basil and sun dried tomatoes.

What you will need:

  • 1 zucchini, shredded
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 4 green onions, chopped, separating the white and green parts
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 TBSP fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour, find it HERE
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp sumac, find it HERE
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • non-stick cooking spray (I used avocado spray)


1/2 cup cooked and cooled sushi rice
