Hey hey hey! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. And even more, I hope that everyone who is fortunate enough to have tomorrow off for the holiday enjoys a nice day with family, friends, and good food!
Speaking of good food…have I got a recipe to share with you guys!
Hmm, what could those possibly be?
It all started with my latest obsession in the condiment department:
This jar’s been in my pantry for months now…not sure exactly what I was waiting for, but when I came home the other day with my latest impulse buy…unsalted pretzels from Kroger (yes, I said UNsalted…yes, I know I’m a freak),
I knew EXACTLY what to dip them in!
But not before I had the chance to create a delicious recipe with it!
Now this isn’t a typical “Pancake Sunday” recipe, but after not one, but TWO failed attempts at trying to make my idea fit into a traditional pancake recipe, I gave up and took a different approach…
You live…you learn…you open up the fridge and have an epiphany!
Honey Mustard Quinoa Corncakes: (serves 2)
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 egg, whisked
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons your favorite honey mustard*
- 1/4 cup milk
*While it say’s “hot” and sweet, I really tasted no spiciness to it at all, but I will tell you, it is THE BEST honey mustard I have ever tasted!
It seriously couldn’t get any easier!
And I love the fact that the egg and quinoa give you a protein boost…these aren’t your standard simple carby corncakes!
With a little schmear of some sunflower seed butter or a slice of cheese, I can see these making their way into my snack rotation!
But this time, I decided to make it a meal and served them alongside a colorful salad of romaine, zucchini, red bell pepper, orange heirloom tomato, and
LiteLife’s Smart Sausage
(If you haven’t tried them, they are amazing! You’d never guess it’s faux meat!)
Pancake Corncake Sunday!
Are you a fan of mustard? What’s your favorite?
I actually used to hate mustard, but now I’d have to say it’s one of my top three condiments of choice…right next to ketchup and hummus (which is totally a condiment! I only wish restaurants would realize this and stop charging extra for it!)
Any big plans for the holiday tomorrow?
