Cauliflower Pancakes (Simple Meals)

Cauliflower in a pancake batter makes a beautiful meal for a busy morning or a dinner. They are so simple to make. The meal will be ready less than 30 minutes.  This is a budget recipe as well as a one pot meal. These beautiful pancakes can be left in fridge for 3 days and can freeze for future use. When you freeze make sure to store in individual bags.

Instead of using eggs you can add a banana or some flax meal too. So it will help to bind the ingredients together.

You can change the herbs always to liking.

Breakfast Bread

I found a bread same  like this in a bread shop  recently and I thought of making it for breakfast on a Saturday morning. I had enough time to do this as all the other wake up late. 🙂

This is so simple to make and also very nice all in one breakfast. For proofing ion the morning I switch on oven to 25 c and leave the dough there  to double. It takes only less than thirty minutes. When I was telling the ingredients I missed several and I made sure to include  them in my recipe.

The texture of this bread is the same as you find in bread shops and also the taste is much better than them too. Try making them for a quite breakfast and kids specially will love this with out a doubt.

Stir fried Chicken and vegetable Quinoa

Quinoa is gluten free superfood that you can use instead of rice. Replacing quinoa instead of starchy products will give you lots of proteins as well as a lot of minerals and vitamins. Its very famous for its omega 3 fatty acid levels too. quinoa is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese.

Cooked quinoa seeds become fluffy and creamy, slightly  crunchy. It has a delicate and  nutty in  flavour, Its good for salads side dishes or even making snacks. I want to show the right way of cooking quinoa with a bit of flavour as cooked in restaurants. When you add flavour it can be eaten with anything too.

Simple Spinach and Egg Breakfast Bread

Breakfast  is always a quick one for me all the week days. When i have time I like to something nice and nutritious for my family. These little breads are one of them. It takes five minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake. So all ready in less than 30 minutes. These can be done days ahead for brunch or for snacking or even for kids to have after school. Even these are nice and cute for a lunch box. The left overs can be kept for the next day with out a problem.

When you use spinach in this make sure to squeeze them finely as spinach holds a lot of water and it can make the bread go soggy.  You can add bacon or ham too in it.

Adding sour cream or curd or even yoghurt gives it a rich creaminess as well ass increase the nutrition value.

I added cheese on top of the spinach to prevent it from burning when baking. But in the video I forgot to show that part.  The number of the muffins depends on the size of the baking dishes that you are using. I made 8 large breads out from this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 160g Self raising flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100ml Milk
  • 80g Sour cream/ curd/ yoghurt.
  • 30g melted butter
  • 70g Cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • Chopped squeezed spinach
  • Several Eggs

Method

  • Add self raising flour, salt, baking powder, sour cream, melted butter, eggs and milk and stir well.
  • Add half of the cheese in.
  • Fill half of the moulds with the batter.
  • Crack an egg in to the middle.
  • Sprinkle some salt and pepper.
  • Put the spinach on top.
  • Sprinkle the left over cheese and bake on 180c about 10-15 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack or serve hot.

Belgian Waffles with Yeast

Waffles are a easy , simple and a quick  choice for a breakfast or to serve as an dessert. So easy to make. There are so many varieties of waffles. These waffles are so light in texture, crunchy  out side. Most recipes are based on yeast to get this beautiful texture.

To serve the waffle there are so many options. you can serve it with fresh or stewed fruits and cream or ice cream. You can mix vegetables or meat to make savoury waffles too. I will be uploading several different types of waffles in future.

All you need is a waffle maker. If you don’t have a waffle maker still you can use a sandwich maker to do this. These days there are so many options. for easy storing now they have created the waffle plates only. So easy and cheap to buy online. If you want to select a waffle maker make sure to buy with a deep grid pattern. So when you pour cream or honey it holds it nicely each deep hole and distribute the flavours equally.

Toppings are always your choice. Try serving with fruits, Icing sugar, honey, syrups, fresh fruits, whipping or pouring cream etc…..
