Yummie Brunch

Today, I woke up pretty late. I was sick for afew days and still stuffy right now so I decided to sleep in on the weekend. When my husband and my daughter woke me up it was already noon and I was still feeling lazy. But, I got up. Figured we haven’t had pancakes in a while so I spent about an hour in the kitchen making this very delicious and healthy brunch. It is very simple to make actually, nothing fancy about it at all. I made Pasta with Sardines and some Whole Wheat Pancakes. The Pasta with Sardines came to me when we had leftover pasta and no sauce. Usually for breakfast, we would have some leftover from last night’s dinner. But when I first made this, the only whing in the fridge was the leftover pasta, no sauce, no other meat. So I experimented and goodness, it was yummie!

Pasta with Sardines (serves 2 people)

  • 2-3 c of cooked pasta
  • 1 can of sardines in olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2-3 eggs, overeasy
  • optl: diced fresh tomatoes

Instructions:

  1. Warm up the cooked pasta in the microwave or in the skillet on low heat. After 3-4 mins, add in sardines.
  2. Splash the lemon juice over the sardines. Mix them all together until mixture is warm enough. Put them on a plate.
  3. Add eggs on top of pasta and serve!
  4. Another option here is: Once pasta is hot, you can add 1 beaten egg and mix them all together to make the mixture creamy.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

  • 2 c buttermilk (or add 2 tbsp vinegar to 2 cups milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 2 c flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 ts baking powder
  • 1 ts b soda
  • 1/4 ts salt

Instructions:

  1. Beat eggs with wire whisk until fluffy. Add dry ingredients and mix with whisk or you can also use a mixwer. 
  2. Add in buttermilk gradually while beating until smooth. (For thinner pancakes, add 1-2 tbsp milk)
  3. Heat griddle/skillet on medium. No greasing necessary for non-stick ones. Pour about 1/4 c of the batter and wait until you see many holes on the pancake. Turn to cook the other side until brown. Serve with some butter and pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
