I visited my mom recently and was able to get a variety of recipes from her….but of course no specific measurments :p but that seems to be typical of family recipes.

So there are two ways to make the base of the “pancake.” If you have access to rice flour and mung bean flour you can just use that in a 1:4 ratio of rice to bean flour and add enough water to make it pancake texture. If you don’t have that you can used uncooked split yellow mung beans and some dried rice. In the same ratio soak the beans and rice in water for 24 hours. The next day blend it in a food processor til smooth.

Next its the time to pick the add in-s. You can use chives, spring onions, sliced onions, zuchini, carrots, Kimchee…..really any vegetable you want. You can also add a precooked meat like pork or seafood. Add the chopped add-in of your choice to the batter and stir. Fry in a hot pan with oil added to grease the pan before every batch, just like making pancakes. Flip once nice and brown on the first side. Serve with soysauce! Yum.

[ this particular version had chives, zuchini, and baby octopus]

banana pancake

I had this one sad little banana on my counter (you know the ones that are barely recognizable because they are completely brown) and just got some local eggs yesterday and I had a sudden urge to try this recipe that I have seen floating around the web recently, 2 ingredient banana pancakes. It sounds good but I have been putting it off since my grain free cottage cheese pancakes were a fail (it does NOT taste like cheesecake I don’t care what anyone says)

Banana Pancakes

1 ripe banana mashed
2 eggs beaten

**So you can really stop there for a true 2 ingredient recipe but I like to add**

pinch sea salt
pinch cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp flaxseed

Just stir everything together. Heat up a skillet grease and fry these babies like regular pancakes. Just wait til the first side sets and you can flip it….easy….cheap…quick…and REALLLY good!

This recipe is all over the web so I don’t know who to thank for the original but the additional ingredient idea came from Skinny Confidential
