Four Ingredient Pancakes


I have tried pancakes in 100 different ways, it seems, so I'm just going to add to the list today. I usually make pancakes with a mushed banana but I had tofu last week and I replaced the banana with tofu....and it was so delish. And high in protein. Tofu is cool. You can make tofu scramble, bake with it or even make tofu cheese.


I haven't been feeling well lately, this weekend was packed with activity-the women's march, volunteering with New York Road Runners, working out and writing-but I think I was fighting a fever and I had body aches and I still have a nasty cough. It's also uncomfortable too, it's cold but humid, wet and smothering. You bundle up only to sweat, tank top and leggings in the apartment, it's a pain the butt. Today it's pouring and I'm still coughing.


I'm running two groups on Facebook for meditation and plant-based eating. Get in on them if you wish:

If you don't have tofu, use a ripe banana for this recipe. You can use any kind of tofu you want, silken, firm, whatever.

1 cup of oat flour
2 slices of tofu or 1 ripe banana
2 tsp of baking powder
3 tbsp of non dairy milk + a few splashes of water

Oat flour=rolled oats in the food processor. Process the oats, add the tofu and baking powder and thin out the batter with the milk and water. Pour into a pan coated with coconut oil and cook on both sides.
I added chocolate chips. I topped with Earth Balance vegan butter.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
