Fall for breakfast: vegan pumpkin pancakes

pumpkin pancakes

Since we are officially entering into the sweater weather season, it’s time to treat yourself to make the loss of summer a little easier.

So if you were wondering why this recipe doesn’t use baking powder for the batter – now you know why. 😉

I used mushrooms and dried tomatoes for the filling, though you are of course free to use whatever you like! Just make sure that there isn’t to much liquid in your filling, or your pancakes might end up soggy instead of tasty! Continue reading

You need:

For the pancake:

  • 2 tablespoons of wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • milk
  • salt
  • chives

For the filling:

  • 1 small courgette
  • olive oil
  • rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 tomato
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan
  • salt
  • pepper

dough for pancakesMix a creamy dough from the wheat flour, the egg and some milk. Season with salt and chives and put the dough for about 30 minutes in the fridge.

Now chop the courgette into thin slices and roast them gently with some olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary in a pan. Meanwhile, cut the tomato in cubes and mix it with cottage cheese and parmesan. Add the roasted courgette and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Take the dough from the fridge and bake a thin pancake. Be careful not to roast it to long, since it could then break when trying to roll it up. Top the pancake with the filling and coil it up.
