Quinoa whole wheat pancakes

With Sauteed Cabbage and Carrots

Pancakes have to be my favorite breakfast food, now in my bid to change my lifestyle and eat healthier, i am trying to incorporate healthy options into what i love to eat, so i am making realistic decisions rather than irrational ones. I am not really a syrup fan and apart from using reduced fruit sauces to eat my pancakes, sauteed vegetables are my usual go to. You can add diced cooked chicken into the vegetables for an extra oomph!!!

Ingredients (serves 1) (approx 350 cal)
3 Tbsp of Whole Wheat Flour
1/8 cup of Quinoa, (cooked according to package)
1 medium sized egg
2 Tsp of Honey
1/4 cup of skimmed milk
1/2 of grated carrot
1/2 cup of grated white cabbage
1/4 onion (finely sliced)
1/2 tsp of curry
1/4 tsp of chili flakes
Oil spray

  1. Heat a fry pan over medium heat with a tsp of oil
  2. Saute onions until translucent and then add in the carrot and cabbage, Keep stirring for about 2-3 minutes until they are a little soft
  3. Add in curry, chili and salt for taste and take off heat
  4. In a bowl, break in the eggs into the flour and add the honey and milk, whisk them all together until smooth
  5. Add in the cooked quinoa and stir
  6. Fry in a pan over medium heat, make sure to lubricate pan first with oil spray or a little olive oil, about 1 teaspoon
  7. Measure batter for frying using 2 full spoons of a small size laddle into the middle of the pan, do not swirl pan,
    When bubbles start to rise, flip pancakes to the other side and leave to brown for about a minute.
  8. Serve topped with sauteed vegetables and enjoy

Gosh, i love pancakes! I must confess though that i have never made any from scratch because i just buy pancake mixes them make them with cinnamon, chocolate chip, blueberries or whatever to make me feel better about myself. This looks really good though, if we ever meet, i'll beg you to make them for me someday and you'll say yes then you will and all will be alright with the world! :D
