New Year’s Cabbage Pancakes

Need an extra dose of luck for new year’s? I think we all do/did this year. Last year I did not eat the “lucky” pork and cabbage, so this year, I was NOT chancing it. (Why is this kind of gross combo lucky again)? These pancakes are at least so fun that you’ll forget they’re a vegetable. Really, they could be a staple side dish for any veg you are trying to sneak out of the fridge and into the bottom of your belly. How lucky is that?
