Not everyone loves sweet pancakes, so give these savoury vegan pancakes a go! Nevermind if the first pancake doesn't go to plan, the following batch will be amazing. Hope you have fun making these!
For the pancakes:
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup oat milk (unsweetened)
For the creamy mushrooms:
- 250g chestnut mushrooms – sliced
- 2 cloves garlic – crushed
- 2 tbsp fresh chives - roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp vegan crème fraîche
- 2 tbsp Vitalite (or another vegan butter)
- Salt and pepper
- In a small bowl or jug, mix the oat milk and apple cider vinegar together. Set aside.
- Place all of the remaining pancake ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
- Pour the milk and apple cider mix into the large bowl and whisk by hand, or on a low setting if using an electric mixer.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high hob - if you're not using a non-stick pan, use a tiny bit of oil or vegan butter to stop the pancakes sticking.
- Using a quarter cup measurer, pour in a quarter cup of the pancake mixture into the frying pan, and let it cook for a few minutes.
- Small holes should start to form on top of the pancake – this is usually a sign that it's ready to flip. Lift up a bit of the pancake using a spatular to see if it's ready - it should be a nice golden-brown colour.
- Using a spatular, carefully flip the pancake and allow it to cook for a couple of minutes on the other side. Be careful it doesn't burn by keeping a close eye on it!
- Repeat step 6 and 7 until all the mixture is used up. It should make about 12 pancakes.
- Time to make the creamy mushrooms. Add the mushrooms to a medium sized saucepan over a medium-high heat. It should start to melt gradually.
- Pop the garlic in with the vegan butter and give it a stir.
- After a minute add the mushrooms and give it a good stir.
- Let it cook for around five minutes and then add in the chives, vegan crème fraîche, salt and pepper.
- Cook for another five minutes and stir well. Make sure the crème fraîche is mixed in.
- Serve the mushrooms on top of the pancakes with more chives and crème fraîche.
