Cheesy cauliflower & chia mini pancakes

5
Breakfast & Brunch|Keto
Servings
2
  • Low-fat cottage cheese, 1%, 7 oz(s)
  • Eggs, 3 large
  • Cheddar cheese, reduced fat, ¼ cup(s), shredded
  • Chia seeds, 3 tbsp(s)
  • Cauliflower rice, 1 cup(s)
  • Dried mixed herbs, ½ tsp(s)
  • Black pepper, 1 dash(es)
  • Baby spinach, 2 cup(s)
  • Cherry tomatoes, 5 oz, halved
  • Lemon, ½ medium, cut into wedges

Method

Place the cottage cheese, eggs, cheese, chia, cauliflower rice and dried herbs in a bowl and season with pepper. Stir together until well combined. Allow to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chia expands and mixture thickens.

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the cherry tomatoes, tossing occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until they just start to soften slightly and their skins begin to split. Transfer to serving plates.

Reheat the same non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour a quarter cup of the pancake mixture into the skillet and lightly press down to 3-inch rounds. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until set very firm (if they are not firm enough before flipping the will fall apart). Carefully flip and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through, puffed and golden brown. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 8 mini pancakes in total.

Serve the pancakes warm with spinach, pan-fried tomatoes and lemon wedges.
