Fashionable & healthy: Summer recipes for stylish parties! (Part 2)

June 9, 2014

The second dish in our series is delicious, vegetarian pancakes. Serve them on their own or combine with the soup in part 1.

Here are the details.

Vegetable pancakes with spicy syrup-infused kale

A lower fat, vitamin-packed alternative to regular flapjacks, these vegetable pancakes have a more savoury taste, making them the perfect meal for a late brunch—perhaps after a jog on a late weekend morning. Being the good maple syrup-swigging Canadians we are, we couldn’t abandon sweetness altogether, but the inclusion of hot peppers in the topping helps keep it in check.
