Stick Blender Pancakes

Like healthful pancakes, quickly prepared? Try this: Use a 16 oz., 500 ml. stick blender container. Add 1 c. oatmeal, 1 tbs. wheat germ, 1 tbs. walnuts, 1c. milk or soy, 1 egg, 1 tbs. oil, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tbs. sugar or honey. Blend. Add 2 tbs. or more flour. Blend. When the batter can almost but not quite pour, heat the pan to medium hot and only then stir in 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Grease with a swipe of butter.


Skillet Soup Bowl

What’s soup without bread to soak it up with? So why not bake the bread in? Place half the bread dough, parmesan peppercorn bread here, on the bottom. Pour on the soup, lentil rice here. Top with cheese, provolone. Optional: Spread chipotle salsa on top of the cheese. Place the other half of the dough on the soup. Top with a bit of parmesan. Bake in a hot oven. Careful with that skillet handle!
