Shredded Vegetable & Kale Pancakes: Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Comfort Food


Two months ago, we featured a sample recipe from one of Beverly Lynn Bennett’s latest books, Anti-Inflammatory Foods and Recipes. It was for her pretty Tropical Fruit Parfaits with Homemade Vanilla Nut Whip – a perfect low-sugar treat. But now that we’re heading into the cooler months, Beverly was kind enough to share a sample savory dish from this healthy vegan cookbook. These shredded vegetable & kale pancakes have a warm, comforting appeal, and pack in loads of nutrition with every bite. They boast antioxidant-rich root vegetables, herbs, and greens, and also contain steel cut oats for an extra dose of fiber.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serve these crispy kale pancakes plain, or enjoy each bite topped with dairy-free yogurt, vegan sour cream, or unsweetened applesauce.
Serves: 12 Pancakes
  1. Put the oats in a blender or spice grinder and process them into a fine flour, about 30 seconds.
  2. Put the turnip, beet, and carrots in a colander in the sink and squeeze to remove excess moisture.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl, and add the kale, parsley, chives, dill, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Add the oat flour and stir until evenly distributed.
  4. Heat ½ tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Scoop ¼ cup of the vegetable mixture into the preheated pan for each pancake. Slightly flatten each pancake with a spatula.
  5. Cook until the pancakes are golden brown and crispy on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until the other side is brown and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes longer.
  6. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining oil and vegetable mixture.
  7. Serve the vegetable & kale pancakes warm.
