i'm suzi and i'm slowly working my way over to the dark side, heh. i've been a vegetarian for about a year and a half or so and now i'm easing out eggs, dairy byproducts, etc. (i don't drink milk it's gross.)
i work a lot and i want to keep eating healthily so i'm starting to bulk cook things to have on hand. today i made pumpkin muffins and a great cashew sauce that ya can put over rice noodles or brown rice and veggies, etc.
i also found the following recipe in the Vegan Delights cookbook by jeanne marie martin. it's an older book from the early 90s, but it has a lot of great content in it aside from recipes. she includes nutrition, substitutions, explains different kind of oils to cook with - ya know, basic cooking stuff.
so yea, here is an AWESOME pancake recipe. i just stuffed myself with a large stack of them.
whole grain pancakes
3/4-7/8 cup apple juice
4 tsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup "light" flour; i.e. unbleached white flour or whole wheat PASTRY flour
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
sift together all the dry ingredients. in a separate bowl, mix the oil and juice. pour over dry ingredients and mix well until lumps are scant. slowly add more juice if a thinner consistency is desired.
heat a well oiled pan over medium heat. pour pancakes to desired size. pancakes are ready for first flip when bubbles appear in the middle of each cake and edges are dry. flip and cook for another 30-45 seconds. flip again if desired.
voila! seriously. they're awesome. hungry jack ain't got nothing on these!
