Veggie Ricotta Pancakes

We often make these pancakes at home as it is a great way to add vegetables to our children’s diet. I made these the size of pancakes, but you can also make them bigger. 

This recipe is a real lifesaver, they go well with any side dish, and can be made ahead and reheated when needed. It is also a perfect lunchbox meal!

They are delicious and can be made using any vegetable you may have, like basil, corn, carrots or whatever you prefer. You can also use frozen vegetables. I love to serve these with cream cheese, fresh herbs or a salad.

Great for lunch, dinner or brunch. They are a must!

Veggie Ricotta Pancakes


  • 20 grs melted butter
  • 1/3 cup cup milk
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 130 grs all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped spinach (corn or basil)
  • 85 grs finely chopped ham
  • 1/2 finely chopped zucchini
  • olive oil


  • Mix the melted butter, ricotta cheese and milk. Add the eggs and mix to combine. Add the baking powder, salt, pepper and mix. Add the flour and mix with a spoon until well combined. Add the spinach, zucchini, ham and combine. 
  • Heat up a skillet (15cm / 6 inches) over medium heat with 1 tbsp olive oil. Drop 1/3 or ½ of the batter (depending on the size of the skillet) and spread it out. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook it shaking the pan a little to make sure it does not stick, until the bottom is golden, approximately 4-5 minutes. Flip it over and cook it on the other side until golden brown. Repeat with the rest of the batter, adding more oil if necessary.
  • You can serve them with salad, or if you like, with cream cheese, chives, salt and pepper.


If you make thick pancakes, you may need to finish cooking them in the oven at 180ºC/350ºF for 5-10 minutes.
You can make them ahead and then reheat in the oven at medium heat.
