[ Easy homemade hearty breakfast ]

Rewarding yourself with a hearty breakfast after a vigorous workout is the most beautiful scene you can create to begin your day lively and energized. I was pondering upon what to make for breakfast one morning that I decided to satisfy my craving for pancakes. I used Betty Crocker’s complete pancake mix which required minimum amount of time to quell my hunger. To top the fibre and protein content up in my breakfast meal, I added in carrots and scrambled eggs as an accompaniment to the usual boring plain pancakes.

Carrot pancake (4 to 5 pancakes)

Ingredients:

1 cup Betty Crocker’s complete pancake mix

¾ cup cold water

¾ cup grated carrot

Olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Whisk the pancake mix and the water together until it forms a uniformly mixed pancake batter.
  2. Stir in the grated carrot into the pancake batter.
  3. Grease the pan with olive oil and adjust the heat to medium high. You know it is ready when a few sprinkles of water dropped on the pan splatter.
  4. Scoop two tablespoons of the batter onto the hot pan for one pancake.
  5. Flip the pancake when the bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake.
  6. Cook the other side of the pancake for about a minute until it is golden brown.
  7. Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing the pan with olive oil between batches.
  8. Enjoy the carrot pancake.

Scrambled eggs (1 serving)

Ingredients:

2 whole eggs

¾ cup water (or milk)

Chopped mixed herbs

Salt

Pepper

Olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Beat all the ingredients together in a bowl using a fork.
  2. Heat olive oil in the pan over medium heat.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook.
  4. Stir, scrape, and fold in the eggs until no liquid remains.
  5. Turn off the heat and it is ready to be served.

Ta-da! That was one of my descriptions of a hearty breakfast. Carrot pancakes with no-milk scrambled eggs. Both of them combined were simply heavenly, especially for an empty stomach. You can follow these recipes and modify them if necessary to create a wide whole range of pancakes and scrambled eggs. Add cheese or some berries into them. Yum!

Cheers,

Tania
