Savory Vegetable Pancakes

I love savory pancakes- shredded veggies add so much flavor.


Savory or sweet? That is my question today- not to indulge in the duality of either/or and divide the pancake universe into opposing sensibilities or anything, but if push comes to shove (and I'm four square against shoving, honestly) the naked truth is I'm more of a savory, salty, golden crunchy pancake lover than a soft, sweet and sticky with maple syrup craver.

Maybe it's because I love pancakes for supper.

When I'm awake, in other words. And semi coherent. At breakfast I'm too groggy and non-verbal and sleepy-eyed to focus on measuring gluten-free flours and starches and pinches of xanthan gum. You cannot trust me with numbers and measurements. Not while there's a caffeinated beverage to brew (first priority).

So that might be it.

And if your next thought is, Dear Reader, Well, why for Pete's sake doesn't she just buy a gluten-free pancake mix? (and who is this Pete we always speak of, by the way? Does anyone know? Does he, for instance, have an opinion on pancakes?).

Or you may wonder, why doesn't she make her own pancake mix ahead of time- she's a gluten-free goddess, after all? Excellent point. Maybe I will. Maybe I should. Maybe I oughta. Someday soon. Perhaps, even, maƱana. But.

Then I start imagining crispy brown edges of creamy potato and a sweet bite of carrot with the springy onion spike of green scallion. And I'm gone. Backtracking down the road heading home to savory. I can't help it. It's in my nature.

Sweet or savory is the question. What are you?

Savory Vegetable Pancakes Recipe


These tasty little beauties make a lovely vegetarian side dish or a perfect bite for brunch. Serve with yogurt, applesauce or hummus. More accompaniment suggestions and links below.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup GF buckwheat flour
1 tablespoon tapioca or potato starch
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 free range organic egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (helps it stick together)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon thyme or savory
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Ground pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup plain hemp, nut or rice milk, as needed
3 carrots, peeled, grated
1 medium gold potato, peeled, grated
1 medium sweet potato, peeled, grated
1 cup thinly shredded green cabbage
4 scallions, sliced, white and some of the green section
Light olive oil, for frying

Instructions:

In a bowl stir together the buckwheat flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, egg replacer, xanthan gum, sea salt, thyme, nutmeg, pepper, garlic. Add in 1/4 cup hemp milk and stir to combine. If the batter is very thick, add a small amount of hemp milk to thin- you want enough moisture to make the batter coat the shredded vegetables.

Stir in the grated veggies and mix well. Heat a coating of light olive oil in a frying pan till hot. Drop forkfuls of the vegetable batter into the hot pan, press and shape into a pancake. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.

Keep warm in the oven till serving, if you need to.

Makes about 12 pancakes.

Serve with a dollop of horseradish sour cream or yogurt with mint.

Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan)

For today's menu? Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan). A frigid wind is rolling through, interrupting our whisper of solar warmth with bracing bursts of frosty cold. But the skies are clear and cobalt blue, nudging out the low wooly gray of yesterday. Still, it's the kind of day that calls for comfort in the form of food. Something baked in a crock. Something piping hot and old fashioned. Something with mashed potatoes. A savory pie, I said out loud, standing at the window watching our pair of cardinals and chickadees take turns at the feeder stocked with black oil sunflower seeds. Don't tease me, said my husband from his corner study, looking up, I imagine, from his latest screenplay effort. I wouldn't joke about a thing like pie, I assured him. I'm thinking- a shepherd's pie, I said. More to myself than him. But not the usual shepherd's pie. No lamb. No beef. No onion. No peas, I murmured. Please, he said. No peas. (His hearing is ex

Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies - Our New Favorite Recipe

Our go-to brownie recipe- for years- was this fabulous Dark Chocolate Brownie Recipe , created back in the early, innocent gluten-free days of 2006. And it has never failed us. We must have baked hundreds of these brownies. I'm so not kidding. So why mess around and experiment with success, you might, quite logically, ask? Well. I cannot come up with a definitive philosophy behind my impulse to try something new. All I can say is, It's my nature. And that's good news for brownie lovers everywhere. Because these fudgy-good gems are easy to make. No xanthan gum or weird ingredients. Just rich chocolate goodness. What better way to ring in a New Year? So go. Get fudgy. Peace - Love - Chocolate, Karina xo

Gluten-Free Goddess Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Banana bread for the rest of us. No apologies needed.  Out there in the cold cruel world, Darling, some folks apparently (still) view our gluten-free lifestyle through a jaded foodie lens, believing, first of all, that gluten-free anything is never going to taste anything but awful, and second, that this whole gluten-free trend (their word not mine) is a fad not worthy of serious consideration, appreciation and compassion. Apart from the standard (and brief) lip service that non-afflicted food writers, bloggers and journalists pay to celiac disease, adhering to the medical treatment that is a gluten-free diet is degraded- for that sexy topical hook- to a "bandwagon". An eating disorder. A diet by choice. They dub it a controversy. Two food bloggers referenced the gluten-free diet on a social networking site recently, bragging about their "iron stomachs" and their ability to chow down on everything, implying that those of us unable to ingest gluten merely have &

Snow Day Cake with Blueberries

Last night's winter storm crept in overnight, waking me in the pitch black dark of 4 AM with its silence, its ten-inch thick blanket of fresh fallen snow. Magic like that can wake you up out of a sound sleep. After padding around to the windows to see if flakes were still drifting down and downy, sticking to the bird-feeders in impossibly high heaps, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I preheated the oven and baked us a tea cake for breakfast.  It's a simple muffin style cake studded on the top with blueberries. I know. I know. Blueberries? In January. Well. Yeah. Because January. Because snowstorm. And honestly, who doesn't crave blueberries all year round? Why should they be relegated only to summer recipes?  That's why The Goddess invented frozen blueberries. For snow days. And recipes like this one.  Stay cozy wherever you are, and stay safe. Bake a cake.  Add a little sweetness to your weekend. Karina xo

New Chocolate Muffins for Winter 2022

Facing the Winter of 2022 takes a dash of courage. A pinch of patience (well, way more than a pinch!). And a hopeful refresh of your favorite treat go-tos. In other words. HERE WE GO AGAIN. Bring on the chocolate. So with that in mind, my beloveds. This is my latest version of a chocolate breakfast treat- a gluten-free muffin with options. If you need a sweet- but not too sweet- lure to start your day, these cocoa infused beauties might be just the ticket. If- like me- you may need a little extra deliciousness, especially on a gloomy day, you can add in (like I did, I confess) extras. Like, dark chocolate chips. And walnuts or pecans. It's up to you how much indulgence you need to get you through. We don't judge. The added bonus? Your kitchen will smell like a bakery. Like a chocolate hug. Like... love, maybe. Because the secret ingredient is always LOVE. Put love in your baking and your day is sure to be brighter. And more delicious. Love yourself. Take care of your Someone Sp

Butternut Chili Spicy 'n Sweet

A New Year's bowl of comfort for 2022. Sweet 'n spicy chili with a dash of lime. New Year's Day is almost upon us. Rather than wax nostalgic about the bumpy ride of the year we've had, I'd rather post a simple home cooked recipe I know you'll love.  Making a pot of bean soup or legume heavy chili to welcome in a freshly minted year is a tradition as old as the hills. From Italian Pasta Fagioli to homestyle southern Hoppin' John , beans somehow acquired the favorable reputation of attracting good luck.  Why? I haven't a clue. But I do know this.  Beans paired with cubes of winter squash make for one sweet and tasty chili. That, Dear Reader, you can take to the bank. Wishing you all good luck, good health and lots of love in 2022. Karina xo
