Strawberry Palačinka

I'm on my period this week, so the plan is to be grumpy and eat lots of Yugoslavian comfort food. Yesterday I was craving palačinkas, which are these thin pancakes that my mother makes. She fills them with cheese and sour cream and they're served with fruit and/or more sour cream.

So I came up with a recipe for my own. Mind you, it's veganised and North Americanized, so it's probably not very authentic, but...

Make the filling the day before:


1 package of firm silken tofu
1/4 cup of cashews
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp or so of arrowroot powder

Put filling ingredients in food processor and process until smooth. Then add:

1 or 2 cups thawed frozen strawberries (Reserve the juice seperately).

Process again slightly so that the strawberries are cut up a bit. The filling will probably turn pink, but that's okay. :)

Scoop filling into a bowl and leave it in the fridge over night. It will firm up a bit.

The next day, make:

The Palačinkas!

The filling
1 cup of Bisquick powder
1 cup of soymilk

Put the bisquick and soymilk into the food processor, and process until you have a smooth runny batter. Add some water if it's not runny enough.

Lightly grease a frying pan and heat it to medium hot. Use the batter to make very thin pancakes.

Take the filling, and plop a tablespoon or so of that on the centre of the pancake. Fold it up like a burrito and put it in a greased casserole dish. Repeat this until you run out of pancakes. Bake the palačinkas at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Using the reserved strawberry juice, some sugar, some water, and maybe a bit of cornstarch, make a sauce to serve the palačinka with.

The filling, with or without the strawberries, makes a delicious substitute for yogurt, pudding, or cream cheese.
