Today for our Sunday lunch my husband and son had roast chicken but for my older son and myself I decided to make mushroom pancakes using my new flour.
They take a few pans but are easy to make ( husband doesn't like me using loads of pans he's on washing up duty!)
So I made two of these and they went down really well, they are full of mushrooms the ones on the plate at the side are a few that came out. Recipe is below and if you leave out the cheese and bertolli spread and use vegan substitutes ( also for the egg, not sure what you use there) instead these would also be vegan.
Garlic Mushroom Pancakes
4 desert spoons of dove farm gluten free plain flour
125ml soya milk (or just milk)
1 pack of large mushrooms
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 a red onion
2 garlic cloves
125 soya milk (milk)
small amount of mozzarella or cheddar
tsp of margarine ( I use bertolli spread or shops on olive spread)
To make pancakes beat eggs, add milk then whisk in flour a bit at a time. Heat a little oil in the frying pan cook pancakes a few minutes each side then set aside on a plate.
Chop all ingredients, fry mushrooms in the garlic (crushed) add onions, after a few minutes add spinach, sprinkle in the basil.
Heat the spread in a saucepan then add milk as it gets hot add a little flour at a time and whisk quickly it will start to thicken (don't add too much it goes thick all of a sudden) take off heat and add a little cheese).
Place a pancake in an oven proof dish, coat one side with the mushroom mixture add a little sauce over the top. Fold over add more sauce and a little more cheese on top. Repeat with the other pancake. Cook in a hot oven for about 10 - 15 minutes until golden on top.
I sometimes add a little chilli to the mixture to make it a bit spicy but that is up to you.
So one wheat free recipe down I will have a go at pastry later in the week ( I think that is where I will need the xanthan gum).
Also this week I am going to make a skirt with the check fabric I have had ages but I am still stuck what to do, I love the fabric and I usually just jump straight in and cut out but I have seen lots of styles I like and I am undecided. Below is what I found on pinterest.
Right this bottom one is actually similar colours and I have some lace left, a bit longer but only problem is if I embellish it with lace I probably wont wear it for work and I like to be able to wear my clothes whenever.I may do a combination of these I will see what develops.
Here is my fabric sitting there on the sewing table waiting for me to make up my mind.
