Oat Flour Pancakes with Raspberry Sauce


Another hit from the book, Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen- & Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes! The recipe called for a bit of cornmeal to add some texture to the pancakes, but because I try not to eat corn, I substituted an equal amount of stone ground buckwheat flour. They turned out really well! I left them to cool on a cooling rack and I will keep some in the fridge, and maybe try freezing the rest.

I made the raspberry sauce myself. If you have never made a fruit sauce before, it is really simple.

Here’s my recipe:

2 c frozen berries
1 t vanilla
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c water
1 t lemon juice

Cook the above ingredients over medium-high heat until reduced by about half.

Stir in 1 t of tapioca flour and remove from heat.

Eating in Toronto: Starving Artist


Any place that has vegan and gluten-free waffles gets my vote for awesomeness.  Everything in this place is served on or with waffles. I think they only had one vegan thing on the menu, but it was pretty great, so I don’t care.

Eating in Toronto: Hogtown Vegan

I have wanted to go to Hogtown Vegan since I first heard that it opened! I finally got the chance a few weeks ago. I went for brunch with Greg. Everything is vegan, but they also have marked what is gluten-free and nut-free. There weren’t too many gluten-free items on the brunch menu, but I would probably eat anything off of their menu!

I had the taco salad. It was good, but I wish I could try something more awesome, like the waffles.


Greg had the breakfast biscuits: “tofu scramble on flaky biscuits topped with mushrooms, gravy and a fried tomato.” It looked really good, but sadly it wasn’t gluten-free.


For dessert, I had a gigantic chocolate torte. It was the size of a plate and very rich. Maybe I don’t know what a torte is, but it tasted like a chocolate brownie to me. It was still awesome, but kind of too gigantic. I know, I didn’t think that was possible, either. I could only eat about a third of it, and got the rest to go.


I really want to go back here for a non-brunch meal sometime soon!
