Sweet, Fluffy Cauliflower Pancakes
You really can hide vegies ANYWHERE, even in pancakes. Cauliflower is my favourite hidden vegetable because it tastes reasonably neutral and is great in both sweet and savory dishes. It also hasn’t got any sort of colour to it so the kids won’t spot it.
Steph, gave me the idea for this one. While she was preparing for her last comp she was mixing cauliflower in with her oats and eggs. I suggested she made the mix into cauliflower pancakes and the idea took off.
- 2 cups of cauliflower, cut up stems are fine to include (don’t use FROZEN)
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk (optional)
- 2 scoops/60g pea protein*
- a pinch of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg**
- 3 egg whites**
Place the cauliflower in a saucepan with the coconut milk or equivilant water. Cover the saucepan and place over a medium heat to steam for 15-20 minutes or until very soft.
Place the cauliflower in a food processor and puree until smooth. Add in the egg and egg white and whizz a little longer. Add in the pea protien, salt and baking powder and puree until smooth.
Lightly grease a non-stick frying-pan/skillet and cook the mixture in 1/3 cup batches, flipping once the mixture has set.
*Pea protien can be replaced with plain soy protien or your favourite (gluten free) flour such as wholemeal, amarenth or besan.
**Or 2 whole eggs
