Buckwheat Pancakes with Beetroot Hummus

39SHARES
BACK TO TOP

Buckwheat flour is one of my storecardboard staples. I find it really handy to have to hand so that I can just whip up a batch of my favourite buckwheat pancakes whenever I feel like it (which is at least a couple of times a week as I love having them for breakfast). They're good sweet or savoury and a perfect healthy start to the day as they are super wholesome, a great source of protein and naturally gluten free. 


I usually top them with some kind of hummus (my classic version with lots of lemon, pea and mint, edamame or my delicious beetroot hummus). You can make one big pancake I like have here or two/three smaller ones which can be stacked and layered with hummus. 

Buckwheat Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of organic buckwheat flour (I like Doves Farm)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Pinch cumin seeds

Method:

  • Put the flour and other dry ingredients in a bowl, make a well in the middle and add the olive oil.
  • Gradually pour in the water, mixing with a spoon or whisk, until you have a batter like consistency.
  • Heat a small/pancake pan until very hot, brush with olive oil and pour in the batter. This should make a thick pancake.
  • Lower the heat slightly and allow the flatbread to firm up before turning and browning the other side.

Beetroot Hummus

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack of organic vac packed beetroot
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 peeled garlic cloves
  • 1-2 tbs tahini
  • 1-2 tbs olive oil
  • Handfull of toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • Pink Himalayan sea & black pepper

Method:

  • Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 and then place your nuts on a baking tray to toast slightly (this should take aprox 5 minutes, keep your eye on them to make sure they don’t burn). Allow to cool.
  • Drain the beetroots and then tip them into your blender.
  • Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, cumin seeds, nuts and olive oil.
  • Blitz until smooth (aprox 2 minutes)
  • Season to taste
