Spring Garlic Pancakes

This is the week of milestones.  Yes, it was Father’s Day yesterday. But it was also Eric’s birthday (the big 32… I like to remind him that I’ll forever be his younger man).  In addition to this, we attended (and I photographed) our dear friends’ wedding.  Despite a week of rain, things lightened up Friday afternoon, just in time for their rehearsal dinner, and stayed bright and sunny for the next 36 hours.  The weather reminded me of our own wedding, which occurred four years ago this week.  It’s hard to believe that time has flown by like this.  I couldn’t be happier with the life we’ve created with each other.  Full of laughter and love (and no shortage of delicious food and drinks).  We don’t have a lot planned in the way of celebrations, but I can guarantee a lobster dinner and a bottle of champagne will grace our table.

I could eat these every day!! We make a zucchini Asian version but I like this spring garlic idea.

You had me at garlic. Love the sound of these pancakes! And of course, happy anniversary! :)

I. Want. These. Cakes. Like. Bad.

Yum! I have some spring garlic in my fridge from our CSA with no plans for it. I also conveniently have all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce in the fridge/pantry. I think it’s a sign. :)

They look just as wonderful as I imagined.

I had a lame scallion pancake over the weekend – I wish I had this garlic pancake instead! Happy birthday to your hubby!

My kids love scallion pancakes – love the idea of using Spring garlic instead of scallions!

Love these savory pancakes!

These are stunning, friend! Great flavors.

These pancakes sound like the perfect snack. I love the idea of switching up a traditional scallion pancake with green garlic!

Happy anniversary AND happy birthday to Eric! My, what a week for you!

These savory pancakes are an old favorite I used to love picking up from the Asian stores back home. Thank you for inspiring me to make my own :)

¡Ajo, ajo ajo ajo, Ajo, Ajo!

Yum! I will take them all!

Greg HenryJune 17, 2013 - 5:52 pm

I am not Asian, but I swear these are my ultimate comfort food. Though I never had them as a kid. Best argument I know for the idea of reincarnation. GREG

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the KitchenJune 17, 2013 - 8:06 pm

Lobsters and champagne! You both know how to celebrate in style.

Denise WoodwardJune 17, 2013 - 8:51 pm

Happy Anniversary! And I must say I have been wanting to make scallion pancakes, and I want to even more now!

Happy anniversary :)
Scallion pancakes are one of my fave treats. I’ve never had spring garlic though – it is like scallions? They certainly do look alike.

Nusrat AzimJune 28, 2013 - 12:59 am

Just a sneak peak of those pretty pancakes made me ecstatic :) Imagine whats gonna happen when I’d try ‘em. Havoc !

Michelle Rittler @ Taste As You GoJuly 8, 2013 - 10:09 pm

We just finished cleaning up from dinner and I want to go back into the kitchen to make these.

I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and the dough was too sticky. Also, I used liquid aminos instead of soy sauce and it was too salty.
