Cauliflower Leek Pancakes

If you read this blog regularly, you know I love making little pancakes out of everything!  These are easy to make and really delicious.  Beware: they go fast!

makes about 16 pancakes

1 cup mashed cauliflower (about 1/3 of a small head of cauliflower)
1 cup sliced leeks
1/4 cup chickpea flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax meal + 3 tablespoons water)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon dill
S and P
Olive oil
Sunflower oil

Boil cauliflower until soft.  Coarsely mash and set aside.  (Can be done a day ahead.)

Slice leek into semi circles and clean well.  Saute in olive oil until soft, around 5 minutes.  Set aside.

Make the flax egg.  Chop the parsley.  Mix everything together.

Heat up sunflower oil in a non-stick skillet and, using a tablespoon, form little pancakes.  When the edges are brown, flip them over and flatten them a bit.  Drain on paper towels.  Enjoy!
