Savory Protein Pancakes (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

My husband loves warm and sweet homemade brunches like muffins or pancakes during the weekend. Last Sunday, for a change, I decided to make a savory protein vegan pancake. Yes, pancake and vegan, it can be done!! By the way, we are not vegans; it was just that I was out of eggs and dairy that day and we wanted to have savory pancakes, without having to go out to buy ingredients; so I came up with this recipe. These pancakes are super quick and easy to put together. They can make delicious and nourishing breakfast, brunch or even dinner. All you have to do is pour the pancake batter on the pan and top it up with some veggies and cook till done on both sides. Serve them hot with your favorite condiment/ chutney. And, guess what, they are super healthy too!!!
