Meatless Monday with a Sweet and Savoury Vegan Pancake Day

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for a special Pancake Day edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share series. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to forgo Shrove Tuesday and our recipes prove just that. Today we have a savoury Tomato & Mushroom Pancake recipe from BBC GoodFood and a Coconutty Cinnamon Roll Pancakes recipe from One Green Planet.

Tomato & Mushroom Pancakes Ingredients (makes about 8)

  • 140g white self-raising flourvegan tomato mushroom pancakes
  • 1 tsp soya flour
  • 400ml soya milk
  • vegetable oil, for frying

For the topping

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 250g button mushrooms
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp soya cream or soya milk
  • large handful pine nuts
  • snipped chives, to serve

Directions:

  1. Sift the flours and a pinch of salt into a blender. Add the soya milk and blend to make a smooth batter.
  2. Heat a little oil in a medium non-stick frying pan until very hot. Pour about 3 tbsp of the batter into the pan and cook over a medium heat until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife and cook the other side until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping the cooked pancakes warm as you go.

Coconutty Cinnamon Roll Pancakes Ingredients (serves 2-3)

The Eggvegan coconutty cinnamon roll pancakes

  • 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water

The Cinnamon Filling

  • 4 Tbsp. vegan butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

The Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut milk (carton, I like Silk)
  • 1/2 tsp. Kahlua or vanilla extract

The Pancakes

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1 cup carton coconut milk (I like Silk)
  • 1 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil, melted

Directions:

  1. Flax is first. To make the flax egg combine the ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl and whisk very well. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. To make the cinnamon filling, add all of the ingredients to a small zip-lock bag and squeeze/knead until well mixed. Careful not to let it burst out the top! Once it is well mixed, cut a very small hole in one of the corners and place in the fridge until ready to use.
  3. To make the icing, add all the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until very smooth. Add additional milk if needed. Set aside until ready to use.
  4. To make the pancakes, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Then add in the milk, the flaxseed egg, and the oil. Mix until just combined.
  5. Over medium-high, heat a large frying pan and coat with a nonstick cooking spray. Add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the pan. Allow the pancake to cook until the edges start to form bubbles, about two minutes, then “pipe” a swirl of the cinnamon filling onto the pancake, as such. Careful not to let it get too close to the edges of the pancake.
  6. Then, flip the pancake over and allow the other side to cook for about 30 seconds. You don’t want to leave it flipped for too long or else the filling may begin to burn. Some of the melted filling will seep out from beneath the pancake and that’s okay. Remove the pancake from the pan once cooked through and place on a plate.
  7. Before making a new pancake, take a paper towel and whip the pan, taking care not to burn yourself! This will help get some of the remaining filling off the pan so it doesn’t burn. Continue with the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve the pancakes stacked high, hot and drizzled with the coconut icing. No need for maple syrup or butter!
