Oat & Buckwheat Pancakes (flour-free!)
2/3 cup oat groats (the whole-grain!)
1/3 cup buckwheat groats (the whole grain!)
1 1/2 cups non-dairy "milk"
1 Tbsp brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp flax seeds
1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
2 Tbsp brown rice syrup (or other natural sweetener)
1 Tbsp safflower or coconut oil
1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine the oat groats, buckwheat groats, and "milk" in a blender container (do not blend). Let soak in the refrigerator overnight, covered. After soaking, blend until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients & blend well.
Heat a griddle & brush lightly with oil. Drop the batter by 1/4 cups and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Serve warm with fresh fruit or a drizzle of natural sweetener.
Terrific Tempeh Patties
8 oz organic tempeh
1/2 onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp flour (I used 1 Tbsp chickpea flour & 1 Tbsp quinoa flour)
2 Tbsp shoyu (unpasteurized soy sauce)
1 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp filtered water
2 Tbsp sesame oil
Cut tempeh in quarters and steam for 20 minutes (improves digestibility). Once steamed, mash tempeh with a fork and place in a separate bowl. Saute the garlic and onion in 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil until translucent. Add the onion/garlic mixture, flour, herbs, and spices to the tempeh. Stir until well-combined.
Add enough water to form patties (about 1/8 cup for each patty). Heat the rest of the sesame oil in a heavy skillet. Saute the patties and brown on both sides (about 3 minutes each).
**Serve in place of sausage or store-bought veggies patties. You'll be glad you did!
