How long does it take for carrots actually to start to go south in your refrigerator? I have no idea, but I've never had that happen before, so I needed to rescue these guys before they were unusable.
Carrot Pancake with Endive Salad
- 1-2 carrots, peeled and grated
- 1 small red potato, grated
- 1/2 tsp. cardamom
- 1 tsp. fresh horseradish, grated (prepared can be used)
- 2 T. buttermilk
- 3 T. chopped parsley and cilantro
- 1 head of endive, chopped into half-moons
- olive oil
Mix together the carrots, potato, and cardamom. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl, mix together the horseradish, buttermilk, and herbs. Season with freshly-ground black pepper. Add the endive and toss.
Heat a skillet and add 1-2 more T. of olive oil. Form the carrot mixture into two pancakes and add to the heated oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side and 1-2 minutes on the second. Using a spatula, transfer them to a plate.
Top each pancake with some of the endive and herb salad.
