Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is my super delicious vegetable pancake recipe. We won’t be making the dough from scratch. Instead, we’ll be using dumpling wrappers. It’s shockingly tasty, quick, and easy! Let’s get started with Crispy Vegetable Pancakes Recipe!


Serving: 12
Prep time: 35 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

For the filling:
3 ounces glass noodles
2 cups warm water
2 cups Chinese chives, finely sliced
1 cup red bell peppers, finely diced
3 pieces shiitake mushrooms, finely diced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetarian oyster sauce
1/10 teaspoon salt
1/10 teaspoon white pepper

For the vegetable pancakes:
12 pieces dumpling wrappers
1 cup water, for sealing
2 tablespoons avocado oil, or other high-smoking oil

For the dipping sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinkiang vinegar, or other vinegar
1 tablespoon chili oil


To prepare:
  • In a bowl, add the glass noodles and warm water. Rehydrate until soft for about 10 minutes. Discard the water, drain the glass noodles, and cut them into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss in the Chinese chives, red bell peppers, shiitake mushrooms, and sesame oil. (The sesame oil will prevent them from releasing too much liquid while making the filling. You could also replace it with other cooking oil.)
  • Followed by the glass noodles, oyster sauce, salt, and white pepper. Combine.
To assemble:
  • Lay a dumpling wrapper flat. Brush some water around the edges. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling in the center. Gather all the edges. Pinch and seal together. Press it down with your palms into a pancake.
  • Do the same with all of them.
To pan-fry:
  • In a pan over medium-high heat, add the avocado oil (or other high smoking point cooking oil), and the chive pancakes. Pan fry until golden brown for 2 minutes. Flip, and pan-fry until golden brown for another 2 minutes.
  • Do the same with the rest.
To make the dipping sauce:
  • In a bowl, add the soy sauce, Chinkiang vinegar, and chili oil.
  • Serve and enjoy!
Happy cooking & enjoy:

I’ve always tried to teach my daughters to be kind to others. But many times, I ended up learning from them instead. One day, my 4-year-old daughter said to me, “Mommy, we should always treat others the way we want to be treated.” She continued by helping me to clean up the mess in the kitchen. That was so nice of her! Let’s all treat each other with kindness and consideration. The world will be a happier place. Happy cooking and enjoy!
