Savoury Pancakes

Pancakes, I love pancakes especially when served with avocado, cooked mushrooms and vegan mayo, here is a recipe I’ve been making a lot-  they really are not anything special but they are fairly quick and simple to make! Adjust how you see fit! Remember to use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible!

43 Savoury Pancakes

In a bowl mix 1 2/3 cup of your favourite dairy-free milk (I used organic soy milk)
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
Stir and let it curdle, then in another bowl mix:

1 1/4 cup flour (I’ve used both wheat & spelt flours)
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon of sugar (simply add more sugar for sweet pancakes)
1/4 teaspoon salt (add 1/4 more if you like things salty)

Add the wet to the dry, mixing with a spoon or whisk as you add the liquid, once smooth pour a little bit of the mixture (it is up to you how much but I like smaller pancakes, as they are easier to flip!) onto a hot non-stick pan, if you wish to use some vegetable oil, go for it, I’ve made them with and without oil, make sure the pancake is evenly spread out and is not to thick so it cooks all the way through, after a minute or two, depending on the heat of the pan use a flat wooden spoon to flip the pancake over, cook until both sides are a golden brown, I enjoyed mine with sautéed mushrooms, fresh tomato and avocado, cracked pepper, shallots, vegan mayo + a lime wedge (:

Yum!!!

Smoky Sunflower Cheedar

This recipe takes almost a week to make! Unless you already have some Rejuvlac handy! It is totally worth the time if you like a strong tasting cheese! Enjoy with crackers or raw vegetables!
Use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible =)

11 Sunflower Chedder Cheese

Rejuvelac recipe

In a glass jar put the following:
½ cup of wheat berries (or rye or spelt berries)
1 cup of water

Let it soak overnight before draining and rinsing the next day, put a new cup of water on the berries and continue this process (cleaning water daily) until you see little tails sprouting from the berries, once you see this happing (it took about three days for me, it will depend a lot of the temperature I think) drain and rinse the berries and cover in two cups of water, cover with a cloth and let it sit until the water goes a murky white colour, this is your rejuvelac, strain the water and you can compost the berries (maybe there is something you can do with them, but I haven’t came across anything just yet as this was the 1st time I have made rejuvelac!)

Cheese:
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
2/3 cup rejevelac
Soak for at least 12 hours
Blend with 1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
½ teaspoon of turmeric (for yellow colour)

Blend until smooth and put the mixture into a clean cheese cloth or like myself a clean stocking, hang the cloth/stocking above something to catch the liquid, I put it in a jug and wrapped the end part of the stocking over the handle so the bottom part of the stocking dangled in the jar, leave over night, give the cloth/stocking a squeeze to remove more liquid I got just under 1/3 of a cup of liquid.

With a mortar and pestle roughly mix the following:
1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
1/8 teaspoon of salt

Put the cheese mixture onto a piece of baking paper/plastic wrap and roll into the shape you want, sprinkle/mix in the seed and paprika mixture by rolling the cheese around, once it is how you want it to be, using the paper/plastic wrap it around the cheese, press the cheese into a small container, seal it and put in the fridge to harden up a little before removing the paper/plastic and serving with sliced vegies/crackers.
