dubious sources. (Curse you, salmonella outbreak in bags of baby spinach!)
The tartan haggis quest continues. Meanwhile I had lots of haggis and green cheese sauce leftover. I made a fairly standard fast track pizza with tomato sauce, haggis and grated cheese. While it baked I made a vegan cheese sauce. I based in on Dreena's vegveeta sauce but doubled the cashews, added some garlic powder. I placed half in a squeezy bottle (the white half) and then added a few handfuls of basil and garlic plus a good handful of cooked green peas. It never went green enough but tasted of peas and basil, ie a little sweet but full of flavour.
aquafaba. I finally found a reason to hang onto my balloon whisk when whisking the aquafaba. At first the mixture was a little too thick to swirl around the pan. I thinned it down and made another half batch of pancake mixture (because I had the aquafaba). So a batch and a half made 8 pancakes. I wonder if I should have thinned the mixture more.
Overall I was delighted with these pancakes. Sylvia loved them with some grated cheese in them and rolled up. The three of us the last one with nutella in it. They are quite lacy textured, as aquafaba baking tends to be. It is a brilliant recipe to use up aquafaba and make easy pancakes. I will experiment with making thinner ones and report back.

Makes about 6 large crepes
1 cup aquafaba
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
4-6 tbsp milk or water
Whisk aquafaba by hand to make it frothy. Gradually whisk in flour, salt and baking powder. Slowly whisk in water until you have a thin mixture (like pouring cream, only just thicker than milk).
Preheat heavy bottom non stick frypan over medium to medium high heat. (I needed medium high). Lightly grease pan (I used a light coating of margarine for the first and then a spray of oil spray between crepes.)
Now add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of mixture to pan and swirl to cover pan. (I think my pan is about 22cm in diameter. I used 1/2 cups of mixture but others use 1/4 cups so maybe if I had it thinner I could use 1/4 cups and make more pancakes.)
Cook until when you check the underside there is some light golden brown colour. The edges will curl up and some bubbles will appear but neither indicate there is colour on the other side. I found I needed to look. Flip over and cook for another minute or two until some golden brown spots on the second side.
Stack pancakes with a clean tea towel over them. They will soften slightly. Stack or fill to serve as desired. Can be stuffed and baked.
