Corn pancakes with blueberries and sage

Since a week it’s just me and Mia as Mr Greber is having fun in America. Ok it’s a business trip, but still California is fun! On the beginning of this post I must write that I have an enormous respect for women who rise there children just by themselves. It’s been only a week and my Mia is a small angel with randomly growing horns, but my multitasking skills grew like crazy. I am aware 24/7 and I’m always listening if she’s crying. Even when listening to a music… I’ve learned how to make a makeup with one hand and entertain my kid by shaking a toy over her head with another one. Eating in cafes is sometimes fun as well - I shake a stroller and eat with another hand. Taking a shower is fast, internet shopping has more sense than ever and walks - this is my relax time. But cooking is fun. Whatever I do I explain it to Mia, dance and sing recipes. Show her some cool moves so she can process it already. You know being awesome takes practice. And I think she likes our time in a kitchen. She let’s me experiment, not for too long obviously but I can. And life is good :) And I love her.

Today recipe is easy and extremely awesome! It is all Martha Stewart’s idea and I just changed it a bit. I hope you’re curious about a soy flour, of course if you don’t know it yet. One is for sure, you want to try it as it’s healthy, tasty and easy to make. Oh and a sage leaf looks so nice on it. The recipe is for one hungry person (it was me this morning) or two not that hungry.

You will need (for 1-2 people):

  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup soy flour
  • 2 tbsp yellow cornmeal
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp corn kernels

In a cup mix soy milk and lemon juice and leave on a side for few minutes. In a bowl mix lemon zest, flour, cornmeal, salt and baking powder. Then add soy milk, egg and olive oil. Mix everything so ingredients combine. Mix in blueberries and corn. Heat a bit of oil on a frying pan over a medium heat. Place sage leaves and each of them cover with a tablespoon of dough. Fry on both sides till golden.

You can eat it just like this or with a rice syrup or fruits or cream cheese. Your choice :)

Enjoy, Marta.
