I know, I know, veganism sounds a bit extreme. In fact, it sounds boring.
No, I’m not a vegan. I still eat eggs and dairy and the like, but I do like the fact that vegan food is pure, unprocessed nutrition from the earth we live in.
Becoming a vegetarian for me, wasn’t as hard as people claimed it would be. By changing your diet into a healthier one, you’re allowing your body to get rid of all the past junk you used to eat, and you’re clearing out your system in an extremely healthy way. Now, every time I eat vegetables and meat-free meals, I feel refreshed, as if I inhaled a cold minty breath of air. And when I see meat, it doesn’t even taunt me anymore. I look at it, and I’m like, “Really? Did I really used to put that stuff in my mouth?”
But hey, whether you’re vegan or not, this is a really delicious recipe you should try, instead of store-bought pancake mix.
Serves 5 Beatles’ fans.
- 2 cups and 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 tablespoon and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups and 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons oil
- Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk the water and oil together in a small bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet. Stir just until blended; mixture will be lumpy.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
