Maybe we will try these for breakfast tomorrow.
Jessica Seinfeld (along with a nutritionist) has come up with some recipes to add nutrients to the food we already eat.
Prep : 10 minutes
Total : 13-15 minutes
Serves : four little children
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup ricotta cheese (maybe using cottage cheese)
1/4 cup beet puree
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pancake mix
1/4 cup grated apple
nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil (I will probably use butter)
pure maple syrup or fruit, for surving
1) In a blender or food processor, combine the water, ricotta cheese, beet puree, vanilla, and cinnamon and blend. Dump the mixture into a medium bowl, add the pancake mix and apple, and stir until just combined. Do not over mix – the batter will be a little lumpy.
2) Coat a griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When hot, add the oil. Spoon the batter onto the griddle or skillet, using about 1/4 cup batter fore each pancake. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, 1 to 2 minutes. Then flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm, with syrup or fruit.
