2 parsnips
2 medium yellow onions
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
2 egg whites
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray
1 cup non-fat sour cream

1. Preheat two nonstick baking sheets in a 450 degrees F oven.

them with nonstick spray. Spoon small mounds of the potato

the pancakes in the oven until golden brown on one side
(about 6 to 8 minutes), turn them over with a spatula and
brown the other side (about 4 to 5 minutes).
