1 large head of broccoli, with stem (about 1 ¾ pounds)
1 large or two medium zucchini, (about 1 pound total)
1 medium sweet potato (about 12 ounces), skin on
½ pound carrots
1 large onion
5 large eggs, beaten
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400° degrees.
Remove the florets from the head of broccoli and set aside for another use. Using the wide holes of a box grater or the grater attachment of a food processor, grate the broccoli stalks so they are shredded. Shred the zucchini, sweet potato, carrots, and onion.
