These are totally amazing! They are not only flavorful but also wholesome and nutritious. And they are super easy to make. You can use these pancakes for lunch with a sauce or vegan sour cream or any vegan cheese of your choice. You can use them as a side for baked potatoes or yams, you can also have them with bread. Enjoy!
3/4 cup quick oats
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 1/2 canned or cooked garbanzos or chickpeas
1 large potato boiled
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1 small onion, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup sweet red pepper strips
1/4 cup sweet green papper strips
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour or more
4 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder (for flavor and rich color)
2 Tbsp. vegan chicken style seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or to taste
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp. olive oil plus more to cook with
1 cup water or less
In a food processor or blender, put some of the water (ONLY enough to actually make the machine work) and the pepper strips, the tomato, the onion, quinoa, garbanzos and walnuts, and process into a smooth paste.
Scrape into a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. You MUST have a thick mixture, so ONLY add enough water to end up with a thick mixture. Heat up a heavy skillet that has been barely "painted" with olive oil, and drop
the mixture into it with very large spoonfuls. Wait until it sets before flipping. Cook till golden brown on both sides.
You can use them as is, topped with pasta sauce, vegan gravy, vegan cheese sauce, or vegan sour cream (you can chop some chives into this one!) You can also cut them into pieces and add them to sandwiches or wraps, with your favorite fillers.
