About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ Flexivegan Again ~ Potato Pancakes with Celery Sage Gravy


I'm guessing once a week I'll be bringing you flexivegan posts. What is flexivegan? Well, for me it's ideas that are fails but are then saved because, darn it, I'm not going to waste x amount of $ in ingredients. 
I introduce you to Potato Pancakes with Celery Sage Gravy

Pancakes 

1 1/8 Cup vegetable broth
2 medium potatoes
1/2 stalk of celery
1 - 2 cloves garlic
2 TBSP chopped onion 
2 TBSP soy sauce
2 TBSP nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp tumeric 
1/2 Cup oatmeal
1/2 Cup vital wheat gluten
Chop potatoes, celery, garlic and soy sauce to the veggie broth in a saucepan. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12-15 minutes.
Cool and transfer to a food processor. Run and when smoother add nutritional yeast, pepper, tumeric, oatmeal and process again. Add gluten and run just a few seconds. 

Spoon a few TBSP each onto a hot griddle, when side browned, flip and press with a spatula. 

Gravy

1 Cup vegetable broth
1 stalk minced celery
1/4 cashew pieces
1/4 tsp dried sage
1 TBSP flour
2 TBSP cold water

Simmer celery and cashews in the vegetable broth until celery is tender, add sage. Mix the flour into the water then pour into the simmering gravy mixture. Stir until the thickness you desire. 

Pour gravy over the pancakes and serve. Makes about 8 pancakes.
