And then a random recipe fell from the sky!

The following recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz; I've altered it slightly according to my tastes.

I must say, I love this book. One of these days, I'll post Isa's recipe for Jerk Seitan and then you'll know what's what.

And now I'm hungry. Sigh.

Banana pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cups well mashed bananas
1 1/2 cups soy milk + 1 tsp vinegar - I use apple cider vinegar (let sit for 5 minutes at least before using)
1 tbsp canola or olive oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup hemp seeds

Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then combine the two. Mix well but don't over-mix (I'm not sure what this means, to be honest. However I mix it up, this recipe always works for me.)

Brush a large skillet with oil if it's not non-stick and heat to med-high. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Flip when the bubbles begin to appear in a definitive way; you know the deal. Serve with whatever pancake toppings you see fit. Rock on.

I have no idea why we haven't made the banana pancakes yet. Or the jerk seitan for that matter. I can't remember if you have Vegan Brunch. The pumpkin French Toast and the gingerbread waffles are breakfast heaven :)

Ohhh, you really must try the Jerk Seitan, especially served over the Coconut Rice recipe from the same book. Divine.

I do have Vegan Brunch and for a brunch potluck tomorrow I'll be making the Shiitake Dill Frittata - can't wait! I apparently don't know how to spell either shiitake or frittata but I'm sure I can make the food tasty. Sigh.
