Savory Vegetable Pancakes

Vegetable Pancakes With Coconut Milk and Peanut Butter Sauce Topped withSpicy Shrimp
Yummy Savory Pancake With Coconut Milk and Peanut Butter Sauce Topped With Spicy Shrimp

This past Friday I had a lazy morning since I was not working. This gave me the opportunity to make a fancy breakfast/brunch thing for myself. I have a thing for pancakes lately. I have been playing around with a basic recipe with add-ins that change things up a bit. This particular pancake has vegetables added to it because I had pulverized remains of vegetables from my juice making activities in the freezer.

After making the pancake batter, it dawned on me that I needed something to go with the pancake. Since it is a savory recipe, I wanted something spicy to top it off. So I settled on stir-fried shrimps. The coconut milk-peanut butter sauce/reduction came about because I did not have enough peanut butter to make a satay sauce. The modification still worked though in my opinion because it gave the pancake and shrimps so much needed oomph!

I am presenting the meal in parts so that it is not overwhelming because each component is pretty easy to make. I am sorry I don't have pictures of the coconut milk sauce coming to life.
