Crustless Surf&Turf (or vegetarian)Quiche & Nutbutter Fudge Pancakes

Now that I am drowning in self-pity cause I killed my food processor, and I have to wait until I found one on a reasonable price (why do the BF’s not understand, that a life without a food processor is traumatizing??) – I thought I will instead cheer YOU up with the good food I posted yesterday.

thor_trainerWait, wait, waiiiiiiit!!! YOU CAN’T EAT THIS!! Ok, you can, but not here on the screen. I mean, it’s not like ‘food’ in particular. OKAY?!

I’ve got something REAL for you to eat.

Since I was teasing you with all the #foodporn (FOOD not CHRIS), I’d say I owe you some recipes today. But you have to give me the promise that you post the pics on Instagram and Twitter  when you make them!! It’s so much more fun to create recipes when you see others making them. Right? Ok, read on and then SHOO! in the kitchen.

Savory first:

Crustless Chicken or Tuna Quiche (can be made vegetarian too)

Ingredients:

1 egg

2 eggwhites

3 tbsp oats or oatbran

1 tbsp ground flax

1/4 cup of milk (any will do)

1 tsp each: paprika, lemon pepper, chives, grated onion powder and grated garlic powder

1/2 tsp seasalt

5 small mushrooms

1 grated carrott

Small can of tuna or 100g lean chopped chicken breast (or both for a Surf and Turf Quiche!) > if you want to make it vegetarian, just sub the meat and fish with tofu or tempeh.

1 handful spinach (optional – you can add any other vegetable – just cut it in small pieces or grate it)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 200°C.

In a medium bowl, mix egg, eggwhites and spices together and whisk until fluffy.

Add in oats or oatbran, carrott and mushrooms, mix well.

Add in tuna or chicken breast and cover well with the egg mixture.

Take a little casserole dish. Dip a kitchen paper in a little rapeseed oil and whipe the casserole dish out.

Poor the quiche mixture into the casserole dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until fluffy and slightly brown on top.

IMG_2183 IMG_2181 IMG_2180This may look like a big dish, but it’s actually not a lot – it’s just so fluffy (sorry, that WORD!!) and voluminous! It’s very light and perfect for a brunch or even better for dinner.

If you want to make it a little richer, then I recommend to add some CHEESE on top 5 minutes before taking it out of the oven! YUM!

So if you are more on the sweet side today, then you might be interested in this Pancake recipe. Please note – you can sub all the peanut stuff with the almond version and then you have ALMOND FUDGE PANCAKES. But wait, I explain:

Peanut Butter Fudge Pancakes (OR Almond Butter Fudge Pancakes)

Ingredients: 

2 tbsp peanut flour OR almond flour

3 eggwhites

2 heaped tbsp low fat quark or greek yogurt

1 pinch of seasalt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground vanilla

1 tsp ground nutmeg

11/2 tbsp peanut butter OR almond butter

Preparation: 

Mix dry ingredients together.

Add eggwhites, stir well.

Add Quark/Yogurt and Nutbutter until you have a nice pancake batter.

Heat up a skillet on medium heat and cover with cooking spray.

Form pancakes (2 tbsp batter each), cook 2-3 minutes per side and flip.

TOPPING:

3 heaped tbsp low fat quark or yogurt

1 tbsp unsweetened cacao powder

stevia or honey – amount depends on your taste of sweetness.

Mix all and top your pancakes with it, throw on some blueberries or apple slices.

Dipping the pancake bites in the Choco Yogurt is illegally delicious!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Those pancakes sound awesome! I think I might use BOTH pb and ab!🙂

  2. cottercrunch says:

    Damn I’m hungry now too and drooling over a all the pictures hehe and the man

  3. Almond butter fudge pancakes… ohhh yes. You’ve managed to make me hungry even though I’m about to head to sleep😛 While I’m not sure I’ll be able to give up my oatmeal breakfasts, pancakes for lunch or dinner are totally acceptable, right?😛 And when it comes to toppings, I have to go with maple syrup — it must be the Canadian in me.

  4. I’m so making those pancakes for dinner!! Yup, chili is no longer on my meal plan🙂🙂🙂

  5. mitchell-james says:

    Damn – I’m hungry too after seeing that! And the food looks tasty too😛

    I love how thick and delicious your pancakes are, and it’s using a protein base recipe🙂 I really need to invest in some good peanut flour and do some experimentation, from what I’ve read it sounds like just the thing I need to have a bit of fun mixing things up in the kitchen😀

  6. I love both these recipes- especially the quiche! that would be the perfect meal…and yes I’d eat the whole thing in one go!

  7. Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli says:

    Oh my heavens do those pancakes look amazing! You had me at peanut butter of course!😉

    And YES it is so much more fun to make and post recipes when you see people trying them…you have to know you made my day making my chili and cornbread over the weekend! Love you so so so much! xoxo

  8. mmm, pancakes. I had to eat breakfast on the train today so I didn’t get a chance to make pancakes, but maybe tomorrow! Best pancake toppings are peanut butter and banana slices, or maple syrup and a bit of butter. Both classics😉
    And yessss to cheese! I don’t like really old/smelly cheeses, but give me brie or goat chevre and I am a happy girl.

  9. Lovin’ the recipes🙂 I have the biggest food processor ever. I have no idea how to work it sometimes….it’s so intimidating! lol

  10. OMG those pancakes…wowza❤ I need those in my life especially since I eat greek yogurt sometimes since its so YUMMY! Lots of Love and I Hope you have a great week CourtSTar
