Post Punk Kitchen Cookbook Challenge: Week Three
Week Three of the Post Punk Kitchen Cookbook Challenge was easy! We're supposed to make something from one of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's cookbooks — either The Vegan Table or Color Me Vegan. Since I'm, like, Colleen's number one fan (not in a crazy stalker way, I swear), I just so happen to have all of her books.
Just like in PPK Challenge week's past, I opted to make a breakfast dish from one of Colleen's books. Neither The Vegan Table nor Color Me Vegan have breakfast sections, per se, but breakfast dishes are peppered throughout the books. I found her recipe for Peanut Butter Pancakes in Color Me Vegan:
Yummy! But not so colorful for a recipe in Color Me Vegan, right? It's okay. I found this in the Brown & Black chapter, which places emphasis on healthful colorless foods like mushrooms, sea veggies, and chocolate.
The pancake recipe doesn't call for chocolate chips, but Colleen mentions in a side note that several testers suggested the addition. And since nothing beats the combo of PB and chocolate, of course I tossed some in! I doused these in maple syrup, washed them down with a cold glass of soymilk, and served them with a side of my steamed Creole seitan sausages.
By the way, I've mentioned this before, but for anyone who claims not to have time to make pancakes for breakfast during the week, you should know that I don't either. I make a full batch on Sundays, and then refrigerate them. I microwave a pancake or two each morning throughout the week, and they taste just as fresh as if they were made that morning.
How do you like your pancakes?
