Savory Bell Pepper and Quinoa Pancakes

I’ve been wanting to experiment with savory pancakes more so I am excited to share this recipe with you! It was a total success at my house. The idea came since I had left over quinoa that I wanted to serve in a new way to my kids. It is very basic for now as I wanted to get the texture down before adding too many ingredients, so I will try this again with different flavors very soon!

The beautiful red pepper and tomato salad was made by my 6 year old daughter. She washed and cut the veggies and sprinkled ground sesame seeds on top. It was a perfect addition and her idea 🙂 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 large red bell pepper
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Steps:

  • Put everything in blender and blend on high until well combined
  • cook in a skillet the way you would regular pancakes (wait for bubbles to form before flipping)
  • serve and enjoy!

Since this was lunch I served it with salad and pesto, but in all honesty, these would taste just as good for breakfast with maple syrup on them.
