Mung Bean Savory Pancakes

Mung Bean Savory Pancakes

This is one of my favorite patties or savory pancakes. They taste amazing with tomato and avocado, or your favorite mayonnaise or sour cream. And they taste delicious just by themselves! Leftovers freeze beautifully and are just as good reheated. Makes a wonderful gluten-free bread–just toast it in the toaster oven and you have the perfect bread for tomato sandwiches! The trick is to buy dry peeled/split mung beans. You can get them from any Asian store or World Market.

Recipe Notes

This is the recipe I have, but I must confess that I don’t follow it… 🙂 You can really do whatever you want with it, it’s very forgiving–and easy. Usually I adjust the seasoning depending on how many vegetables I put in.
