Pancake Day is just around the corner and Sam, Head of the Vegetarian Society Cookery School, is ready with five delicious filling ideas that you won’t want to wait until 25 February to try!
Tofu scramble with kale, kimchi and sesame seeds: Packed with goodness and extremely filling, this scramble will make your pancake dish perfect for any time of day.
Peanut butter and banana: Sam’s personal favourite –high in protein and a great start to the day. A top tip – warm the peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds – this will make it easier to pour! Fancy an indulgent treat? Grate a sprinkle of dark chocolate over the top.
Tofu bacon and maple syrup: Crispy, smoky tofu topped with lashings of sweet syrup – a perfect combination
Apple and cinnamon: Try adding some grated apple and a pinch of cinnamon to your pancake batter before cooking as usual. A drizzle of date syrup makes the perfect finishing touch.
Monday morning (or Sunday supper) pancakes: Mash leftover veg from your Sunday lunch and fry for 7-10 minutes until crisp and brown. Add a handful of butterbeans – or whatever pulses you have in your cupboard – and warm through. Serve on top of the pancakes with a good dollop of your favourite sauce.
