    Serves: 2 

    • 135g peeled and grated parsnips
    • 2 small eggs
    • 40g finely chopped onion
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon sunflower oil, or more as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Combine parsnips, eggs, onion, olive oil, salt, rosemary and black pepper together in a bowl until mixture is combined and lumpy.
    2. Heat sunflower oil in a heavy frying pan over medium heat. Spoon batter into oil and fry until parsnip cakes are brown and crispy on the edges, 6 to 7 minutes per side.

    Cook's notes:

    I used two small eggs but one large egg might be enough. If the batter is not moist enough, add a tiny bit of liquid of your choice.

    Simple and delicious is right. Wife & loved these. Will be our go to savory breakfast pancake. Made exactly as described and came out perfect.  -  14 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were nice. I like the contrast of salty and sweet so I added a bit of spicy salt.. also good with some wing sauce. It went well with sweetness from parsnips  -  21 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are amazing. I added some bread crumbs to the mix and once done goat cheese and sweet/hot sauce. It was a hit!  -  14 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
