Include the garlic the last half-minute. Stir in the passata, peppers, pineapple, cooked lentils and spices and bring to a boil. Serve the stew in a hamburger bread or eat it just as it is.

American, Breakfast and snacks, Crepes and pancakes

Protein pancakes

This is a classic breakfast for me! I usually make a batch in the weekend and freeze it. Each evening I put some pancakes and a bowl of frozen berries in the fridge and in the morning I just heat the pancakes in the microwave and eat them together with the berries. It’s an easy way to get a luxury breakfast every day! It is also very quickly eaten, which is good if you need to get going fast! Why spoil yourself sometimes when you can do it every day 🙂 The chickpea and soybean meal makes the pancakes more protein-rich and fulfilling than regular pancakes.

Approx. 15 pancakes

2 eggs
2 dl soy flour
2 dl chickpea flour
2.5 dl buttermilk or yoghurt
0.5 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
Canola oil for frying

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spoon 0.5 dl batter per pancake into a pan and fry in oil on both sides until they become crispy. Serve them together with berries.

Preheat the oven to 225 °C. Mix pumpkin, onion, garlic, thyme oil, canola oil, black pepper and half of the salt in an ovenproof dish. Roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
