Pancakes have been established as the most popular brunch dish. They are easy to make, deliciously fluffy and can be topped with endless choices. We suggest you try the savory vegan version, with sweet potato and organic almond protein, topped with homemade fava sauce and sweet & sour cabbage or any other ingredients you wish.


For the pancakes

  • 300 gr. sweet potato flesh
  • 170 ml water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. crushed flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp. chopped dill
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 50 gr. AMINO ANIMO Almond Protein

  • 150 gr. purple cabbage
  • 1 tsp ginger powder or 1 tbsp. fresh chopped ginger
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt


For the pancakes:

  1. Cut into cubes and boil or steam the sweet potatoes, until soft.
  2. Beat the sweet potatoes, water, olive oil and cumin oil well in the blender, until you have a puree texture.
  3. In a bowl add all the ingredients and knead well.
  4. Divide the dough into 6 balls and roll them out into round doughs.
  5. Spread baking paper on a pan and put the dough on top.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Serve on a plate, placing a pancake and on top 2 tbsp. homemade fava sauce and sweet & sour cabbage. Place another pancake on top and repeat the steps.

For the fava sauce:

  1. Peel and chop the onions in half.
  2. Put the fava beans, onions and water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, until the fava beans are soft.
  3. Beat the fava beans in the blender without straining it and then add the rest of the ingredients and beat again.
  4. The desired texture is quite fluid like a sauce. If it comes out thicker, add a little water and beat again.

For the sweet & sour cabbage:

  1. Cut the cabbages into very thin slices.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the cabbages and the ginger. Saute until the cabbage is soft.
