What if I told it they were pancakes from an aerosol can?!?!
So I saw this on the shelf by the organic yogurt the other day at the grocery store and I laughed out loud. The idea of it was hilarious to me and more so because it is “organic.” Many people assume that because something is “organic” that is a “healthy” choice. As you can see from the ingredients, it’s not all good, but not all bad either. But it is in a can after all. I decided that I had to buy it, if for nothing else, for the blog! :-D
This morning was as good a day as any to put this puppy to the test. I warmed up my non-stick pan, sprayed it with some EVOO and gave it a few “squirts” ? of pancake batter:
Then I started to panic wondering what I was going to do to “healthify” them a bit more and I sprinkled them with sprouted ground chia!
They cooked up quite nicely actually!
I sprinkled a few POM seeds on top and some sugar free syrup for dipping. It ended up being kind of impressive!
I think what I liked most about it was that it’s ready-made batter in the fridge and I can make it in no-time flatif I want pancakes on a “work” morning. They weren’t too bad in the fluffy department either. But all in all, that would be my only reason for wanting to use it. It’s pretty easy to whip up a batch of pancakes if you’ve got more than a few minutes!
Nooowwwwww, moving on to my new LOVE!!!
You might not think so by looking at it, but this stuff rocks my world :-)
It has such a beautiful fresh balance of bright tasting ingredients like ginger, cilantro and lemon grass are incredible and I just love it! The lemon grass really sticks out and it kicks the pants off of regular hummus in the taste department and is comparable in the NI department.
I can’t be trusted around it if I’m hungry at all!
I will most DEFINITELY be needing a new container of this next grocery shop!
