Breakfast, paleo

Beetroot pancakes (glutenfree and dairy free)



There is one thing you have to know about me or actually two things: first is that I love breakfasts. Even though at the moment I am using intermittent fasting and usually skip breakfast but in general I think breakfast is fabulous and delicious. So that is one. The other thing is that I love beetroot.

Now beetroot and breakfast don’t generally tend to go together really well unless you make a conscious effort to include beetroot in a juice maybe or add it in another way. Well that’s sort of how I invented these beetroot pancakes. I mean, making pancakes is not really rocketscience as I am sure you agree but when I had bought too many beetroot (as I tend to do) I needed to finish some of the already cooked ones. I was in the studio cooking with a friend and all of a sudden it hit me… Wouldn’t beetroot in pancakes look amazing?

And I’m sure you’ll agree that they do look fabulous right? That color alone is worth making these babies. A few things to keep in mind; they are glutenfree and are also quite delicate. So be careful not to make them too big or you won’t be able to flip them over. Also they are quite thick so need a bit of time to cook. Don’t turn the heat on too high or they will burn. Low and slow is the way to go!
