So finally I am taking the step into the world of food-blogging. I was asking my self why should I blog about food, there are so many doing that already. But I realized that that is not a very empowering way to think, and with that all I do is just limit my self. My aim is to share, inspire and create. Aand It doesn’t hurt to actually write down my food creations (so my dear husband can cook for me 😉 😉 😉 ❤
So after years of tummy troubles and allergies, I have turned into quite a food nerd. Because I believe that eating healthy should be a enjoyable experience. Taste good, smell and look good, and enjoyed with good company (I am not so good with the visual, quite funny since I am a designer right?) Anyway we usually eat pancakes in the weekends, and my son loves it. I always get extra hugs and kisses then. ❤ The issue is that the amount of carbs compared to veggies often gets a little unbalanced, and as a parent you wanna try to get in as many veggies as possible. TAdaa. Lava Pancakes. My son named them. With just one beetroot I turned this meal into something a little healthier and even more festive.
What you need;
- 400 g oatmeal (glutenfree)
- 1 spoon steel cut oats (glutenfree)
- 1 spoon apple cider vinagre
- enough water that just covers the oatmeal
I mix this together the night before. To avoid the anti-nutrition in oats, phytic acid, its important to add back the enzyme phytase to the processed oats. I use a spoon of steel cut oats (gluten free), because of my allergies. But you can also use spelt flour or rye if you can handle your gluten. Instead of vinagre you can use sourdough starter or lactic acid.
Next morning I add
- 3 eggs
- 1 beetroot cut into pieces
- 2 dl water
- 0,5 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon Turmeric
- 0,3 teaspoon pepper
- Coconut oil for frying
This makes approx 14 pancakes
Next morning I mix all of this together with a handheld mixer. I do not peel the beetroot first, my thought is that the more fiber the better. Then I fry the pancakes on a little more than medium heat in raffined coconut oil. I tried with ghee but that didn’t really work out.
My love for turmeric as a painkiller and a ant-inflammatory is real. I use it everywhere I can. Adding pepper helps the absorption of turmeric by 2000 %. And yes it is safe for kids too. 😉
When finished frying add your favorite topping. Mine is a mix of blueberry, raspberry, coconut cream, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. YUM!
Enjoy ❤ ❤ ❤
