Smoked Tomato Protein Pancakes

We’re obsessed with everything Lauren Lovatt does with hemp and these savoury protein pancakes are no exception. They’re the perfect autumn lunch – nutritious, warming and easy to make. A top tip from Lauren is to ferment your pancakes. Before adding all of the ingredients just mix together the flour and water and leave in a bowl. lightly covered with a plate or cloth in a warm place for up to 24 hrs. This step isn’t essential but will give you fluffier and tastier pancakes!

The good folks at @plantacademylondon tried this recipe for themselves, using our 85% pure hemp protein to make a batch of super healthy, super tasty fermented pancakes.

Ingredients
  • For the pancakes:
  • 120g water
  • 140g buckwheat flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1⁄2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 15g 85% Hemp Protein
  • A large pinch of sea salt
  • For the smoked tomato salad:
  • 200g olive oil
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1⁄2 cup hemp seed hearts
  • One lemon, zested
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1⁄2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1⁄2 tsp smoked salt
  • 1 Avocado, pitted, halved and sliced

Method

1

Preheat your oven to 180c. Mix the buckwheat flour and water together until smooth then leave to one side while you prepare your tomato salad.

2

Once the oven is hot, place the tomatoes on a tray with a pinch of the salt and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Roast for 20 minutes until slightly caramelised.

3

While the tomatoes are roasting, heat a frying pan with another tbsp of oil then add the hemp seeds, toasting until lightly golden. Add a pinch of salt and set the toasted seeds to one side.

4

Next, finish up your pancake mixture by adding the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and stirring again until smooth.

5

Once your tomatoes are ready, remove them from the oven and add to a blender with the remaining oil, smoked paprika, chilli and remaining salt. Blend until bright red and smooth.

6

Returning to your frying pan, heat with a little oil, and once hot add 2 large tbsp of the pancake mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden. Repeat until all of your mixture is used up.

7

Serve your pancakes with avocado followed by the smoked tomato, salad, hemp seeds and a little lemon juice on top.
