Roasted Eggplant Pancake

Posted by on September 12, 2011

Fire roasted eggplant, sweet red pepper and corn never tasted so good together..

Still warm vegetables from the sun in the garden are ready for preparing.


The Recipe!!
2 cups of grated eggplant
1 cup of diced sweet red pepper
1 cup of sweet corn
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 teaspoon of sea salt
3/4 teaspoon of fresh cracked pepper
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of fine yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup of shredded cheese of choice
3-4 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil


Grate eggplant, dice pepper and place in a bowl with a tablespoon or two of extra-virgin olive oil and teaspoon of salt. Mix well and place in grilling pan in a thin layer so that it cooks more evenly.
Grill one ear of corn for recipe (it equals about one cup).
Grill eggplant and sweet pepper mixture on grill in grill pan for about 10 minutes on a medium fire, rotating the pan as necessary to prevent burning.
When corn is grilled sufficiently, remove from grill and take corn off the cob with a knife.
Place in a large bowl with grilled eggplant and pepper.
Add two eggs, sour cream, and pepper.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Whisk together well and add to the vegetables with the 1/2 cup of cheese.
Now heat several tablespoons of oil in the skillet on a low heat.
Take 3 tablespoons of the batter per cake and place in pan, flattening slightly with a fork.
Turn in approximately 3-4 minutes or when browned and firm.
Cook same amount of time on other side.
Remove and place on a paper towel.
Add more oil to pan when necessary for additional batches.

For Sauce!
Mix 3-4 tablespoons of sour cream with 3 tablespoons of corn piccalilli, top cakes with sauce.

A great way to get these vegetables into your diet in a very tasty way!

    Oh, my. You have outdone yourself on this one, Denié. This looks absolutely outstanding! Quick question… before the pan frying, you placed a little baking powder in the mixture. What does that do to the pancake? If I didn’t have any, can I do without and still have it taste the same?

    Baking powder is a leavening agent used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods – so I’m not sure how it would come out without the ingredient – maybe too dense…
