Ingredients:

1 cup red quinoa, rinsed

2 egg whites

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour

2 Tbsp sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 tsp Orange essence

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 tsp Olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

7-8 Strawberries (to garnish)

2 Tbsp Maple syrup

1 3/4 cups unflavored soy or almond milk

Method:

Dry roast the Quinoa and let it cool. Rinse it in water thoroughly to take out the soapiness of the grain.

Blitz the washed quinoa with the milk and 1 ½ tablespoon sugar to a smooth batter consistency. Add the orange essence and the baking powder. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

Add the lightly beaten egg to this mixture.

Heat a non-stick fry pan with some olive oil and pour the mixture. Flip it once it turns slightly brown at the bottom.

Make 3 to 4 pancakes and keep aside. Arrange layers of pancakes with cut strawberries in between to form a layered cake. Drizzle maple syrup on top.
