“Presence is a far more intricate and rewarding an art that productivity.”

I’m always on the lookout for a recipe that makes a food item that could almost be a complete meal.  Yes, I’m lazy.  I also appreciate it if the item will stay beautiful in the fridge and allow me to skip cooking duties for a few days.  Hope spring eternal.


1/4 cabbage, chopped OR – broccoli and cauliflower chopped

1/4 onion, diced or minced

1 egg

1 T egg white powder, or an extra egg or egg white and then skip the water

3 T water, this is the water I was talking about

1 T sundried tomato, minced

1/4 t paprika, plain or smoked

1/4 t Herbs de Provence or other herb blend that you enjoy

salt, just a pinch



OK.  You could chop and mince to your heart’s content or you could put everything into your Ninja chopper or other food processor and get the job done in less than a minute.

Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat and add a bit of coconut oil or ghee, which I didn’t list in the ingredients.  My bad.

Cook the batter as if you’re making regular pancakes.  Both sides.  These little darlings will not require maple syrup, which in most cases is more of that corn syrup that they’re putting into everything and flavoring with “natural” flavors.  Is that opposed to unnatural or supernatural?

Allow these to cool on a plate, except for the ones you’re going to eat immediately.  When cool, store in the fridge with waxed or parchment paper between each cake, and hope for the best.

veg cakes

Well, needless to say these were not the most amazing dish I’ve ever cooked.  More like egg with stuff in it, which if you read the recipe you’d know that before you ever made it.  And here comes a “however”.

However, when I was down to the last bit of batter I added a tablespoon of pork rind powder, handily on hand from my May 11th Lo-Carb Wrap recipe.  It made a world of difference.  Going to try this recipe again and add a tablespoon or two of almond flour.

Also, I used the optional veggie ingredients.  Although the original recipe calls for cabbage, I didn’t have any on hand and wasn’t interest to buy some.  The broccoli and cauliflower worked well.  This is cooking with food, not rocket science!  Don’t be afraid to explore options.
