Testing Testing 1… 2… 3… Gluten Free Vegan Red Quinoa Johnny Cakes with Homemade Blueberry Syrup

You know when you are craving something carby, yes that’s a made up word, but you need to be good at the same time? Well this little concoction came about when I knew I should eat my leftover quinoa, but I wanted pancakes instead. These are pretty yummy. The recipe is a rough draft, but they came out amazing!

I made a blueberry syrup to go along with them. It’s super simple . A cup of blueberries in a pot, squeeze of two lemons, 1/4 cup of sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook on medium low heat until everything starts to thicken. Remove from the heat and pour over your Johnny cakes. Okay back to the Johnny Cakes, here’s the recipe. Enjoy and always Set the Table with Love. πŸ’•
